Rosler: Bees do not need any more pressure
Brentford boss Uwe Rosler has appealed for calm and insists the next two games are not pivotal to his side’s season.
Stevenage moved off the foot of the League One table thanks to a 2-1 home win over the Bees, who had taken the lead through Clayton Donaldson.
It was Brentford’s thirdstraight defeat, including a 2-1 Johnstone’s Paint Trophy exit at Peterborough United.
And Rosler is keen to play down the significance of Saturday’s visit from Colchester United and Tuesday’s trip to Bristol City – if only for the sake of his players.
“We have great expectations, but things do not always go according to plan,” said the manager.
“We are a big scalp now, teams are working extra hard against us and the league has improved.
“Bournemouth lost five games in a row last year under Eddie Howe and still went on to get promoted.
“We need to keep calm or there will be even more pressure on our players and we do not need that.”
And Rosler hopes clear the air talks immediately after the final whistle at Stevenage will be cathartic.
“We got everything out. It was emotional and deliberate. Things were said that would not be said in a formal team meeting on Monday. It was good and could be a turning point,” he added.
