Uwe Rosler admits Brentford right where they want to be for promotion push


Relgated Hartlepool held the bees to a draw at Victoria Park


Uwe Rosler believes his side are right where they want to be in their promotion battle after being held by relegated Hartlepool United.

Brentford found themselves trailing when Luke James picked his spot, but the Bees took just 14 minutes when Marcello Trotta to level.

Rosler shifted the pressure back onto Doncaster Rovers, with either side in a promotion shoot-out joining Bournemouth in the Championship.

“We have worked so hard in the last few months to be in the position where we have it in our own hands and now it all leads to the final day,” said Rosler.

 “It’s a home game and we have enjoyed a great achievement in getting there – Doncaster have everything to lose and we have everything to gain.”

The German admitted he was disappointed by the standard of the game, but paid tribute to his already-relegated opponents.

“This wasn’t the greatest game by any means, in the 25 minutes until they scored we were not at the races, then we lose our nerves,” said the manager.

“When we started to attack we scored and then in the second half we were the better team and had some very good chances.

“Tom Adeyemi had two chances to win the game – we know we can all play better, no question about it.

“Credit to Hartlepool, they showed character and didn’t drop their heads after relegation.”
