Maxime Colin is happier with how this season has gone, compared to his first season at Brentford.
The Frenchman had an injury hit first 12 months at Griffin Park but has become virtually an ever present this season.
And, while the full back feels he can still improve, Colin believes this season has represented a step up compared to last year.
He said: “This season has been more complete for me than last year. I've only missed two games. I've been playing most games for 90 minutes.
“It's difficult at times to be fresh every week. I'm quite happy. We can always do better but it's a better season for me.”
Brentford travel to Nottingham Forest on Tuesday night and Colin will be coming up a familiar face in Damien Perquis.
He added: “I used to know the gaffer (Philippe Montanier) but he's gone. I know the centre back, Damien Perquis, who used to play at Troyes. It's a big crowd in a big stadium and it'll be good to play there.
“It's really good to play in this league. You have big games in front of a lot of fans. I enjoy being in England and I want to stay here.”
