The Brentford player with an uphill struggle to get back in first XI



This article is part of Football League World’s ‘Player view’ series, this content strand is where we put ourselves in the shoes of a given player, and offer an opinion-based outlook on the perspective on the situation at hand…

Brentford have had an excellent run in recent weeks and their astonishing 7-0 victory over Luton on Saturday was the club’s sixth victory in their last eight Championship matches.

This excellent run of form has seen the Bees fly up the table and they now sit in 7th place in the table, just one point off of the top six.

One player who hasn’t featured for the side so far this season is forward Emiliano Marcondes. The 24-year-old was signed to try and help out their attacking options, but he didn’t endure the best of spells last campaign and was sent out on loan at the start of this one.

Marcondes joined FC Midtjylland on a half-season loan meaning that the player will be returning to Brentford very soon.

This could be a really big boost for the side as they look to attempt to try and get into the Premier League. They are on the verge of the top six, and will now have another option to call upon if they decide to keep the player at the club in January.

The move was designed to get the player back playing regularly after suffering from a number of different injuries over the past 18 months, and he’ll be feeling much stronger and confident about making a return to Brentford.

Who does Jake Reeves play for now?

He has bags of ability and has shown that he knows where the back of the net is, but he will know that he has to keep his head down and wait patiently for his opportunity as this Brentford is full of attacking quality, especially in the front three positions.

The supporters will be happy to have an extra option especially after the club failed to replace Neal Maupay sufficiently, this means that an injury to Ollie Watkins could spell major trouble for the Bees.

Marcondes has to now be ready for when he gets an opportunity, and if he does he has to make sure he takes it otherwise a summer move may be on the cards for the player.
