Jarvis Edobor wants to 'take the bragging rights' in QPR match

B Team defender speaks about upcoming Rangers contest

30 August 2017

Jarvis Edobor has now finished school and is a full-time football player. The 18-year-old sat down with iFollow on Tuesday to discuss his plans for the future, including the upcoming tie with Queens Park Rangers at Griffin Park.

"I think it was a long time coming," said Jarvis. "A Levels were pretty long, obviously. I have loved playing football and I'm happy that I can do it full-time now.

"My A Level results were good, I'm happy with them. I can get into the universities I wanted, so it's good to get that out of the way finally and focus on football 100 per cent."

So far this season, Brentford B have won all eight of their matches and are working hard to continue that run.

"I have loved the season so far," said Jarvis. "We're on a great win streak at the moment, I've been involved in the games and a lot of playing time against Benfica was probably one of the biggest highlights. So I'm loving the season so far and hopefully we can keep it up.

"I think we are confident against any team, big or small, that we go out against. We know that we can perform and we are looking to win every game. I think that's a great feeling to have at the club and we can carry that on if we keep thinking like that."

No fewer than six B Team players were called up for international duty this week with Denmark, England, Scotland, Finland and Wales all represented across different youth levels.

"From Brentford," said Jarvis, "you wouldn't think there would be so many international call-ups with other Premier League teams around us. It shows the quality we've got in our squad and how good we are as players, so I think it's great.

"Obviously there's competition, you're always trying to be the best but if someone gets an international call-up and someone is doing well, then you are by their side, retweeting their twitter for sure. You've got to support your teammates when they are doing well."

On Tuesday 5 September, Brentford B play Queens Park Rangers at Griffin Park with entry free for all supporters. Jarvis thinks this is a good chance to test out the team under pressure from their West London rivals.

"Obviously, it is good to play in the stadium," said Jarvis. "You get the vibe, the feel, and playing against our rivals is going to be a real derby. Hopefully we can win that and take the bragging rights.

"I think the Under-23s were the harder of the two sides we have played, hopefully we can show how much we have improved and go out and give a real performance against QPR."
