Brentford's on-loan defender James Wilson thinks the Bees can mount a push for the play-offs this season.

Brentford have not had the best start to life in League One after winning promotion last term, picking up just one win in their last 10 games, having accrued 14 points from 13 games.

But Wilson, who is on loan from Bristol City, hopes they can climb the table despite their sluggish start to the campaign.

"We've got to aim as high as we can this season and I think we can still make the play-offs," he told skysports.com.

"We may not have got off to as good a start as we would have liked, but we are still in a position to mount a play-off push and I feel we are good enough to be there or thereabouts.

"We seem to be getting punished a lot more for our mistakes this season, but there isn't a great difference between the two divisions.

"We did extremely well last season to get promoted and I can't see any reasons why we can't compete for a top-six finish this season."
