Brentford must withstand the pressure if they are going to do anything this season, insists manager Uwe Rosler.

Rosler will take his promotion chasing side to Carlisle United on Saturday to make amends for the mistakes made in midweek in their 1-0 defeat to Stevenage.

With two defeats in their last six the german’s Brentford side will be keen to get back on track, with a win putting them just a point off the top of league one.

The Bees are heading to Carlisle having won once in the past three games at Brunton Park, but saw United off at Griffin Parkin the return fixture in November.

“We have to go to Carlisle and make up for it,” Rosler said.

“If we want to do something this year we have to go to these places, withstand the pressure, compete and play our game.”

Defender Shaleum Logan insisted there is no reason to panic and his team will do everything they can to get their promotion push back on track.

Logan added: “We have only lost six games, as few as anyone in the league.

“We don’t know what it feels like to lose and it is a horrible feeling. We will go to Carlisle on Saturday and put it right.”

In the disappointment of the defeat in midweek, Rosler was critical of the way his team worked, and is looking for a change on Saturday.

“The formation we set up did not work as well as I hoped,” Rosler added.

“We had three guys in the centre of midfield but we did not compete. Stevenage wanted it a bit more than us which is difficult to understand. We have to be more resilient and competitive.”
