Brentford Manager Uwe Rösler said he wants to see his player reproduce the form they showed in last Saturday’s win over Crewe Alexandra when they travel to Walsall tomorrow.
The Bees beat the Cheshire side 5-1 at Griffin Park last week to pick up their first win of the season.
They travel to Walsall tomorrow for an npower League One clash three weeks after losing to The Saddlers in the Capital One Cup First Round.
Brentford were beaten 1-0 in that cup tie and had Jake Reeves sent off early on.
Uwe told Bees Player he had watched Walsall this week and knew ways The Bees could get at The Saddlers and wanted to see his side go to try and win the game.
“I saw Walsall on Tuesday against QPR,” said Uwe.
“They are a young side but they can play.
“They have good players, they are brave, they are attacking and there is a lot of running capacity in their midfield.
“They play a good style of football.
“We know how we can make life difficult for them, as we did in the second half of the cup game when we played with ten men.
“There is no room for mistakes, no room for sloppiness.
“I want to see how the players handle a performance like last Saturday, how they go in to the next game.
“I can see no reason why we cannot reproduce that performance.
“There will be no excuses; there is no need to change things around.
“We will play Walsall, they won against us and we have scores to settle.
“I think we will see a Brentford team realise we have to go to Walsall and try to win.”
In three games between the teams since Uwe took over, there have only been two goals – one for Walsall in the cup win and one for Clayton Donaldson as Brentford won a league game at the Banks’s Stadium last season.
Uwe said he hoped the game would be more open and he was looking forward to it.
“I hope it won’t be tight,” he said.
“We are capable of scoring goals, last Saturday showed that.
“We are definitely capable of creating chances.
“We have worked a lot in recent weeks on finishing.
“The strikers are in a positive mood and in midfield we have good options.
“I am looking forward to the game.”
Uwe said it had been a good week – with the Crewe win followed by a double signing of midfield player Tom Adeyemi and defender Jake Bidwell, from Norwich City and Everton respectively, on loan deals.
He said a week to prepare for the game would help his team.
“I hope the week ends as it started,” he said.
“We have had a whole week to prepare and the most important thing is the game against Walsall.
“It’s nice to come in to training on the back of a win and on the back of two good signings.
“All focus is on Saturday.
“I always like to have a week to prepare; we can do a lot of physical things and a lot of tactical things.
“There is time to prepare and you feel confident going in to the game.
“When you have three games in a week it is more resting, recovering, short preparation and then the game.
“Sometimes it’s good to play quickly after a defeat but I prefer to have a week to prepare.”
Uwe said he had seen Tom Adeyemi numerous times when the midfield player was on loan at Oldham Athletic last season.
He said the midfield man, who has joined on loan until January, would give him something different.
“I had Tom on my list for a long time,” said Uwe.
“I saw Oldham a few times last season, against us and when I was at home in Manchester.
“I like his physicality and technical ability.
“He is brave; he has a good work ethic.
“He has played for Norwich in the diamond and he is hungry.
“He has a lot of experience for a young player.
“He offers us something different as a midfield player who likes to get in to the box.
“At Oldham he could not do that but he will have more freedom, I hope he can score goals for us.”
Jake Bidwell returned to Brentford on Wednesday after playing 25 games during a spell at Griffin Park last season.
Uwe said it was important to get someone in who could play at left back as prior to Jake’s arrival, he only had Scott Barron.
“The left back position is demanding,” said Uwe.
“You need players to compete against each other and play the way we want.
“There is a lot of running involved, they need to be fit.
“There are a number of games; we had to strengthen that position.
“Tony Craig is a centre half, not as cover for left back, we needed someone, Jake does that for us.”
Uwe said he did not expect to bring in any more players before the end of Transfer Window at 11pm this evening.
“I think our business is done,” he said.
“I was happy to get Jake and Tom in.
“Our squad now complete but we may get short term loans for injuries.
“One player may go out on loan but we have done our business in terms of bringing players in.”
