Golden opportunity for Bees - Rosler

Brentford boss Uwe Rosler is trying to treat their final-day showdown with Doncaster Rovers like any other game.

A win for the Bees will be seal automatic promotion from League One.

He told BBC London: "We are approaching it as normally as we can. I have learned from experience and it is important we don't spend too much energy before the game.

"We are the challenger. We have nothing to lose and everything to gain. We will see how far we have come."

Brentford welcome Doncaster to Griffin Park sitting two points behind their opponents in the table.

The Bees have the best home record in the division while the visitors, who missed the chance to seal automatic promotion last weekend, can boast the best away record in the Football League.

"Our home record makes me very proud," Rosler said.

"The tension and the temperature will rise and hopefully we can peak at three o'clock on Saturday.

"The fitness is in the bank. It is about details and getting the players in the right mood.

"Doncaster had the chance to win promotion last week and didn't achieve it.

"I am very happy with the fact we have this final and have put ourselves in a position that in 90 minutes we can achieve Championship football.

"We will have a full house and it is a golden opportunity for this football club and everybody connected to it.

"We have worked very hard as a unit to get into this position. Everyone should look forward to it but not get nervous.

"We need positivity, support and everybody to have belief that we will fight until the final whistle."

The Bees have plans to move into a new stadium in the summer of 2016 and the ultimate goal for Rosler, who signed a new deal at Griffin Park in January, is to lead the club back to the second tier for the first time since 1993.

"We are slightly ahead of schedule," he said.

"I think we are ready. We have a backroom team and support staff in place which can cope with another level.

"We have the core of the team who we believe can cope.

"For us it is important that we don't focus so much on the future but we focus now, in the last hours, only on performance.

"Should it not be our last game of the season, we go again.

"We will cross that bridge when we come to it."
