Third straight Brentford win helps Rosler settle differences with Bees fans
On target: Brentford striker Marcello Trotta scored his second goal in three matches on Saturday to give his side a 1-0 win over Shrewsbury Town
A third straight win went some way to helping Brentford boss Uwe Rosler settle his differences with the Griffin Park faithful on Saturday.
On loan striker Marcello Trotta struck early in the first half as the Bees beat Shrewsbury Town 1-0 to move up to fifth in the League One table.
The Bees manager last week turned on fans for chanting 'you're getting sacked in the morning' with his side 1-0 down against Colchester United.
But the team rallied to win that match 3-1 before following that success up with a 2-1 win at Bristol City on Tuesday and three points against the Shrews.
"I think everybody connected to this football club is passionate," said Rosler.
"Everybody wants to achieve the goals. The players, coaching staff, the manger, want it as much as every supporter.
"Sometimes the expectations have to be adjusted, but overall it is a positive thing that we are all passionate and want to achieve the best for Brentford Football Club.
"I have no complaints whatsoever. I was very happy with the away support on Tuesday. I was very happy with the support the players and I got today.
"Like it is in a marriage, sometimes there are some clouds, but that doesn't mean that you get divorced.”
Trotta ensured a near 10,000 crowd - thanks to the 'pay what you can initiative' - went home happy ahead of this week's trip to Crawley Town.
During an enterprising start from Brentford Adam Forshaw surged forward and found Clayton Donaldson, who set up Trotta at the near post, but his shot was cleared.
The on loan striker enjoyed better fortune when Kadeem Harris' direct run to the bye-line saw him cross to the near post for Trotta to fire past Chris Weale.
Trotta again came close after another good run from Forshaw, when he shot over the bar.
Harris then looked to make an impact when he dribbled past several defenders, before the ball was scrambled clear.
Shrewsbury enjoyed better fortune early in the second half, forcing a series of corners, but the Bees defence held firm.
Nicky Rowe then tried his luck from 25 yards but fired wide, while Paul Parry cut in from the left and saw his shot deflected for a corner.
Donaldson then cut in from the left and shot wide from the edge of the box.
In the closing stages Donaldson again came close when George Saville set him up inside the box, but he fired wide when faced with an open goal, while substitute Sam Saunders shot wide after a flowing move saw Toumani Diagouraga and Donaldson combine to set him up as Brentford secured all three points.
