Brentford may have missed promotion for another year but they can still have a big say on who goes up from League One.
The Bees have little to play for, lying 10 points adrift of the play-offs, but captain Kevin O'Connor insists they will have no trouble getting motivated for clashes with second-placed Southampton on Saturday and next weekend's trip to Huddersfield in third.
"Our last games are big games for the teams we are playing against," said O'Connor.
"It is definitely better to play teams with something to play for. It gets us up for it, it will be a good challenge for us and we hope it can lead us on to next season."
