Former Bee Tony Craig has backed Brentford to go from strength to strength and climb the table after beating his current club on Saturday.
Craig is still well thought of at Griffin Park after making more than 100 appearances over three years with the club, including winning promotion to the Championship and being voted Players' Player of the Season.
After having his contract terminated by mutual consent two years ago, Craig left the Bees for a fourth spell with Millwall, who Brentford beat 1-0 at the weekend.
“It was brilliant to be back,” Craig said. “There's a lot of friendly faces, and it was good seeing a few old friends. I had a great three years here and enjoyed every moment of it.
“Things have changed a lot on the playing front – I think the only players left from when I was here are Nico Yennaris, Alan Judge and Josh Clarke – but off the pitch there's still plenty of people left from my time who it was good to see.
“Not much has changed in the playing style in terms of playing it out from the back and trying to get the ball up the pitch quickly. They're looking like a good team, and I think they will go from strength to strength and have a good season.
“I had three great years at Brentford. I came with the aim of getting back into the Championship and we achieved that goal. They're there years I look back very fondly on.”
Although he played in 57 games last season as Craig won another promotion to the Championship, he has been restricted to just two Carabao Cup appearances this season and did not make it off the bench on Saturday.
“Both sides should push up the table now,” he added. “It was a very good game today from front to back, it was just unfortunate for us that we couldn't get the goal.
“I'm still loving playing and will carry on for as long as possible. My body's feeling absolutely fine, and as long as it feels good I will continue playing.”
