KEVIN O'Connor reckons Uwe Rosler has put together the strongest squad he has seen in his 15 years at the club.
The Bees veteran filled in at centre-back for the injured Tony Craig as Rosler's Brentford opened their campaign with a 1-1 draw at Port Vale yesterday.
Despite the disappointment of not taking all three points, O'Connor reckons it won't be long before the new-look Bees are firing on all cylinders.
He said: “This has to be one of the best, if not the best, squad I have seen here. The quality is there, and once we start clicking, we will be hard to resist.
“The performance was there today, we just need to keep a few clean sheets at the back. This side is full of goals, so if we can keep them out at the other end, we will win games at this level.
“But the first game of the season is always difficult, you never know what you're going to get. Port Vale have been flying and are full of confidence, but we still should have won.”
