Bournemouth goalkeeper David James, formerly of Liverpool, Manchester City, West Ham, Portsmouth and QPR, was impressed with the performance of Brentford stopper Simon Moore.
The 22-year-old was in fine form against the Cherries as the Bees claimed a 0-0 draw on New Year’s Day to continue a string of fine performances for the Griffin Park outfit.
Brentford team-mate Richard Lee believes that Moore will play in the Premier League and James, who won 53 caps for England, was impressed by what he saw.
“He did well,” James told London24. “He made a few saves and kept us at bay.
“There was one chance that he got injured in I don’t know if it was saved or blocked – he looked all right.
“He kicked a nice ball and looked confident. He looks all right.”
The 0-0 draw kept Brentford and Bournemouth’s unbeaten runs going – the Bees are 12 games without defeat in League One, while the Cherries are now up to 16.
James added: “I think we defended superbly today in tough opponents. Brentford haven’t failed to score since October [against Shrewsbury] and we created a lot of chances as well. We were very dangerous.
“I’d like to think [both sides would be up there], at least one of us anyway.
“They’ve got some good players at Brentford. We’re pleased we kept our run going.”
