Odubajo signed for the Bees over the summer from Leyton Orient for a club record fee of £1 million.

The youngster has just been called up to the England Under-20s for the international break and could make his debut tonight.

He’s filled in over the last few weeks for Alan McCormack who was injured against Bolton Wanderers in the right back role and has been very impressive, scoring his second goal in Bees colours against Millwall last weekend.

Mark Warburton has hailed the 21-year-old as a player with ‘Premier League quality’ and says he will continue to play Odubajo in his more defensive role.

He told Get West London: “I think Moses spends more time in their half than in our half. Moses and Jota are an excellent combination.

“Moses plays so so high and I think that’s a real positive. Will he play wide right? Probably not but he’s done brilliantly so far this season.

“I think Moses will go all the way to the Premier League. He’s got the attributes and that sheer raw pace.

“I’ve got no doubts that Mo will play at the highest level. (England U20s boss) Aidy Boothroyd knows I’ve spoken glowingly of Moses all season.”

Odubajo was the hero as Brentford came back from 2-0 with five minutes to go to draw 2-2. An Alex Pritchard penalty started the come back before Odubajo’s tidy finish won a late point at Griffin Park against Millwall last Saturday.

Brentford have now dropped out of the play-off places and are in seventh place having accumulated 66 points this season.
