Brentford are enjoying another fine Championship season as they sit in 11th spot in the league table after 30 games.
The Bees sit on 43 points and are eight points off the play-offs, and with 16 games left to go, Dean Smith’s side still have every chance of making the coveted top six.
FLW Chief Editor Sam Rourke managed to exclusively catch up with former Brentford winger Stephen Hunt to talk about the Bees and their current situation.
The 36-year-old made 135 appearances for the west London outfit, scoring 25 goals, before departing for Reading in 2005.
Speaking about Brentford’s current transfer policy, Hunt said: “They have a system in place to find players, and it’s done really well”.
“It was a very family orientated club when I was there and it seems like it’s still like that now – they have progressed on the pitch and they’re doing so well, they’ve been very clever in the way they sign players”.
Hunt thinks Brentford deserve respect for the achievements and successes they have recorded thus far, he said: “Credit to them as it’s not easy in the Championship and they are punching above their weight in-terms of the resources available to them”.
Brentford host fellow play-off hopefuls Preston North End on Saturday in what should be an interesting encounter at Griffin Park.
