Tommy Smith could seal a contract with Brentford next week after being given another chance to prove himself in Tuesday’s friendly with Osasuna.
The Spanish side roll into Griffin Park for a friendly match and present veteran forward Smith with the perfect opportunity to show he’s not lost the golden touch.
Bees boss Mark Warburton has confirmed the 34-year-old will turn out for the west London side and has already been blown away by the former QPR and Cardiff man in training.
“Tommy Smith will play on Tuesday,” Waburton said after today’s 3-2 win over Nice.
“He was excellent in training today and just needs to get himself fit, as simple as that. Tommy Smith is a class act, so hopefully a fruitful week for Tommy. We’ll see how he gets on this Tuesday and go from there.”
New signings Alex Pritchard, who banged in two, and Andre Gray were on target to see of the French outfit in sweltering conditions on Saturday.
An injury to Scott Hogan , who limped off after coming on a substitute, was a blot on the copybook but Warburton says the problem is not serious, also offering an update on two more players who have found themselves on the treatment table.
“Scott got a kick on his ankle,” he explained.
“I’m not sure exactly what happened but we’ll have a look at the analysis. It was quite painful but nothing too serious and I’m sure the medical team will work their magic.
“Adam Forshaw will play 30 to 35 minutes on Tuesday and then an hour on Saturday, hopefully putting him in contention for the first league fixture. Alan McCormack will start on Tuesday.”
