Brentford manager Uwe Rosler has urged his players to be more clinical in front of goal after their 1-0 win at Oldham.
Adam Forshaw's first ever league goal since his summer move from Everton sealed the points on Saturday in a game that ebbed and flowed.
Brentford should have been out of sight before half-time, defender Tony Craig and Clayton Donaldson squandering clear-cut chances to head their side into the lead.
Rosler said: "I'm pleased with all my strikers but as a team we need to be far more clinical. We created 15 chances and scored once.
"The next few games will decide whether we stay in the top six or eight or drift away and then have to play catch up later in the season.
"I'd be worried if we were winning 1-0 having created only a handful of chances, but the fact is we've created the most in the league."
