Rosler: Brentford must have their wits about them at all times
Bees boss Uwe Rosler has warned his men they cannot afford to let their guard down when they come up against League One leaders Leyton Orient.
Brentford host their east London rivals on Monday night knowing they face a side that have won each of their opening seven league encounters this term.
Rosler’s side bounced back from a 4-0 humbling at Bradford City with a battling 4-3 triumph at Tranmere Rovers this week, thanks to goals from debutant Martin Taylor, Clayton Donaldson (2) and a last minute penalty from Adam Forshaw.
And while the Griffin Park chief was delighted with his side’s fighting spirit, he warned any lapses in concentration could cost them dear in front of the Sky Sports cameras.
“We know from history that Tranmere is a difficult place for us to go and get a result, so to win the way we did was very positive,” he said.
“We have to learn that we are not going to be on top of teams for 90 minutes. There will be times when we are pushed back.
“That is when we have to be strong and do the simple things well.
“Sometimes I feel that when we are put under pressure we lose our heads too easily leading to mistakes and that is why we are conceding goals.”
He added: “We will be playing a top team on Monday.
“They are keeping their main players fit and confidence is high.
“Kevin Lisbie’s hunger for goals and desire to win is remarkable for his age and he is important for them.
“The longer you are unbeaten the more likely it is that run will end.”
Boss Rosler has been handed a boost ahead of the clash with news midfielder Jonathan Douglas is set to return to action next week.
The Irishman has been sidelined since knee surgery in the summer, but is expected to play in a friendly on Tuesday night.
