KEVIN O'Connor is desperate to avoid more play-off hell with Brentford – as this time it will be a double whammy.
Not only has the Bees stalwart been on the losing side three times in the end-of-season lottery, but another play-off campaign will mean the 31-year-old will have to postpone doing his coaching badges as well.
O'Connor signed a new deal at Griffin Park earlier this month, but the utility man has already started planning for when he hangs up his boots.
Brentford travel to Hartlepool this afternoon with their automatic promotion hopes still in their own hands.
And O'Connor, who could fill in for the suspended Tony Craig in defence, says he's hell-bent on clinching a top-two finish.
He said: “I've started doing my coaching badges. I've done my FA Level 2 and am booked in to do my UEFA B Licence in May.
“It will help even more if we finish in the top two, otherwise I'll have to put it off, so that's another added incentive.
“As I've got older I've taken on added responsibility and have seen the other side of things.
“It's something I enjoy looking at and would like to go into coaching initially and then maybe build up into management.
"However, I'm still committed to playing for the time being.”
