Uwe Rosler admitted he faces a huge test of Brentford’s promotion credentials against Preston North End on Saturday.
The Bees bounced back from two straight defeats when they came from behind to beat fellow high-fliers Swindon 2-1 on Tuesday night.
And Rosler insists this is a battle Brentford have to be ready for if they are going to take the three points against a much-improved North End.
“I expect a physical approach from Preston, but we are more than capable of beating them,” said Rosler
“They have not changed all their players – they will have a direct approach. We have to cope with that.
“If we play at 95% it will not be good enough.”
There will be an old foe in the dugout on Saturday with Simon Grayson well aware of the position Brentford are in.
“Brentford have a strong, powerful team and have threats all over the pitch, but I think they will have one eye on what we have done recently,” said Grayson.
“Whether they are top of the division or bottom of the division, we will concentrate on what we need to do to get the result.
“The victory they are looking for against us could take them towards the top of the division, so we know it is going to be a tough game.”
