Moses Odubajo is happy to curb his attacking instincts and play a more defensive game if it helps Brentford during Alan McCormack's absence.
It was Odubajo's attacking wing play for Leyton Orient last season which made clubs sit up and take notice of him, and persuaded Brentford to make him their first £1million player.
But the 21 year old, who played for a season at right back during his early days at Orient, has been a revelation playing there for the Bees since McCormack injured his ankle at Bolton last month.
He said: “It's quite hard at times as I always have my blinkers on, but you have to learn when to attack and when to defend. It's a learning curve, but I've played there before, so it's just getting used to it again, and that takes a little bit of time.
“I've got no preference where I play really as long as I'm in the team. It's hard to gauge how I'm doing as a lot of what I'm doing I could have done on the wing, asking some questions of their defenders, but I think it's going well.”
Odubajo was impressive once more in his new position as Brentford won 3-2 at Millwall to go into the international break in red hot form.
He added: “Everybody is happy as we are going into the break with three wins in a row, and we are really starting to show what we can do now.”
