BRENTFORD youngster Jake Reeves insists he's ready to step up to the plate if he's thrown in against Sheffield United tonight.
Bees boss Uwe Rosler heaped praised on the 19-year-old after his impressive cameo against Portsmouth at the weekend.
And with the manager set to make changes to the side, Reeves could be handed a start for the trip to Bramall Lane.
The midfielder, who recently signed a new two-year deal at Griffin Park, has vowed to grab his chance with both hands.
“If I can get an opportunity I'll be ready to come in,” said Reeves.
“I played at Bramall Lane last season, so I know exactly what they're going to be about.
“There will be a big crowd, but that sort of thing doesn't faze me.
“I think we can use the crowd to our advantage. Having a large following isn't necessarily a good thing, if we can nick an early goal or frustrate them then their fans will get on their back.”
The Bees will move into the automatic promotion places with victory, and Reeves added: “We've got things in our own hands. We know what we've got to do, and if we win our games we'll be promoted.”
