Brentford FC boss Andy Scott was purring over striker Charlie MacDonald after his brace in Saturday's 4-0 win over Grimsby.
Former Southend frontman MacDonald netted twice on his full debut, while striker-partner Nathan Elder and Glenn Poole were also on the mark as the Bees trounced their visitors.
Scott said: "It was very pleasing that Charlie McDonald came back into the side.
"He showed why we bought him and he has already got a good relationship with Nathan."
Scott did not field new signing, centre-back Mark Phillips, but was more than happy with his side's clean sheet in Phillips' absence.
He added: "I thought James Wilson was outstanding at the back and Alan Bennett was excellent as well, and hes getting the match fitness."
Meanwhile, Brentford have drawn Yeovil at home in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy first round.
