Although he is trying to force his way into the starting line-up, Bright Osayi-Samuel is making positive strides and could play a huge part in the game with Brentford this weekend.
The Queens Park Rangers winger has been afforded more game time over the last month, looking particularly impressive and providing Rangers more width and pace. It is highly unlikely Osayi-Samuel will start on Saturday, but his expected appearance from the bench can be huge.
QPR have struggled of late at Griffin Park, and they will need to be at their very best to snuff out an improving Bees side. Osayi-Samuel will certainly bring the desired energy and passion required for the derby, if not the experience.
The right-winger was highly-rated at former club Blackpool, and those feelings are being realised of late, and he can bring a different dimension to Steve McClaren's side against their neighbours.
Not only is he a threat going forward, Osayi-Samuel has shown strong defensive qualities that will need to be demonstrated if given the minutes, especially in the latter reaches of the game.
If anything, it can prove the perfect opportunity for Osayi-Samuel to stake his claim as an automatic starter. There is still a lot for him to learn but he is shining bright currently, and he would be the talk of west London if he could score the winner.
