Jake Bidwell has called on Brentford fans to stand united and get behind the team as they face Reading at Griffin Park this weekend.
The Bees fans have been divided over Matthew Benham's changes in structure at the club and disquiet has been noticeable on the terraces.
In the 2-2 draw with Ipswich, a section of supporters sang the name of former boss Mark Warburton while, in the 4-0 defeat to Oxford, fans jeered goalkeeper Jack Bonham after mistakes saw Brentford crash out of the Capital One Cup.
And Bidwell insists the squad are fully united and wants to see the fans come together for the benefit of the team.
He said: “It's important that everyone comes together. I know Harlee got a bit of stick on Twitter (for questioning fans' treatment of Bonham) but that just shows the dressing room is united. He's sticking up for his team-mates.
“People have got to give it a chance. This time last year, we were in a similar position so people have to remember we didn't have a great start last year. The players are giving it a chance and the fans need to as well.
“Fans pay their money. They can shout whatever they want. I'd like to think if I was a fan that's not what I'd be doing.
“People have paid their money and voiced their opinions. Players have to block it out and stick together on the pitch.”
Brentford are increasing their focus on set-pieces and have brought in Gianni Vio from AC Milan to improve on them and Bidwell believes the results of that work will come.
He said: “It's been good. It's Gianni's role. He's part of the first-team coaching staff. He's been brought in for a reason.
“He's been doing some good work. We work with set-pieces twice a week and I'm sure you'll see the results from the training pitch.”
The full back has never scored in a competitive game for Brentford, although did find the net against Boreham Wood in the 2014 pre-season friendly, and he is desperate to put that run to an end.
Bidwell added: “Hopefully, I can get a goal. I've been in the box for the set-pieces so I'm hoping he's going to help me.
He then joked: “That'd be worth him being here, just for a goal. I can't have Butts (goalkeeper David Button who comes up late on for corners if the Bees are behind) scoring before me.”
