SIMON Moore has told his Brentford pals to be on their guard against Basingstoke on Saturday.
The Bees host the Blue Square South side in the first round of the FA Cup at Griffin Park hoping to avoid a potential banana skin.
Moore spent a spell on loan at the Camrose last season, and the crocked keeper insists the Dragons have enough threats to do some damage to the Brentford backline.
He said: “They will come here on Saturday and feel they've got every chance of winning. The onus is on us being a league side, so they'll be coming into the game under no pressure.
“They've got a really pacy right-winger called Nathan Smart, who scored about 50 goals one season at Fleet. David Pratt, a nippy striker, is also a threat.
“They like to play football but in the Conference South you need to have that physical element as well.
“They're a good team and will give it a real good go, but hopefully our quality will come through in the end.”
Moore has been sidelined for several weeks after damaging shoulder ligaments in training, but the keeper hopes to be back in contention by the end of the month.
“It's getting better and better each day,” he added. I'm a bit of a nightmare when I'm injured, so I'm sure they'll try and get me out off the physio's room as soon as possible! Hopefully I should be back in a few weeks time.”
