Rosler: No more Mr Nice Guys

Uwe Rosler watched his Brentford side let slip the lead to go

down 2-1 at Doncaster and said they must stop being “too nice”.

Brentford dominated much of Saturday’s League One visit to the

Keepmoat and carried a 1-0 lead into the break after Jonathan

Douglas had clipped home Adam Forshaw’s through ball.

But a 25-yard stunner from Rovers winger David Cotterill

levelled the game with 15 minutes to go, sparking Doncaster to

life, and the hosts sealed the win with a powerful header from

Billy Paynter.

Rosler said: “At the moment we are too nice. This is why

experienced players who have been around the block are taking

advantage of us.

“We need to be more ruthless, more cynical and more aggressive

in those types of situation. The more we are talking about the away

form, the more it is becoming a problem. We won’t be talking about

it now.

“I’m getting sick and tired of it. I would like to win 1-0 and

play bad. We had plenty of chances to get the second and we were

defensively sound for most of the game, so it went to plan in a lot

of ways. But I’m speechless, we’ve controlled the game and

lost.”
