The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

AN­DRE Gray’s im­pres­sive per­for­mances saw him named the Cham­pi­onship’s player of the month for Novem­ber, but Brent­ford boss Mark War­bur­ton says the striker is yet to reach his peak.

The ex-Lu­ton for­ward notched five goals last month to launch Brent­ford into the pro­mo­tion race.

War­bur­ton says teams will have to pay a pretty penny if they want to prise the 23year-old from Grif­fin Park and claims the award is no more than Gray de­serves.

“There’s a lot more to come from An­dre, and it will be the first of many awards for him,” he said.

“An­dre is raw, pow­er­ful, quick and works the chan­nels – the award will be a mas­sive boost for him as a player and is tes­ta­ment to his hard work.

“I'm sure the vul­tures will be cir­cling, but any prey that leaves the club leaves on our terms and no other terms.”

The Bees’ five wins from five dur­ing Novem­ber also earned War­bur­ton the di­vi­sion’s man­ager of the month award, but he was quick to de­flect the credit.

“Th­ese are team awards and are tes­ta­ment to ev­ery­one’s hard work,” he added.

“If we are build­ing more shelves for them at the end of the sea­son, we will be in a good place.”
