Rosler hails 'best' Bees display

Brentford manager Uwe Rosler told BBC London 94.9:

"I think the way we started the game, we were very concentrated, we did exactly what we should do, we were very clinical.

"After the first goal and the second goal the confidence raised.

"I think the first 30 minutes was one of the best 30 minutes I have seen at Griffin Park since I have been here.

"Today we had 18 attempts on goal, only five were off target and that is a fantastic statistic for us.
