Brentford manager on 2-2 draw at Roots Hall

Brentford boss Uwe Rosler paid tribute to Blues’ performance as he watched his side draw 2-2 in the FA Cup third round at Roots Hall.

Speaking after the game, he said: “I felt the first half was a very interesting game for the spectators.

“We were 2-0 up but they (Southend) were very good. They play will skill and organisation.

“We had some good interplay ourselves but I was disappointed with their first goal.

“Second half they became tired and we had more control in the midfield.

“Our substitutes that we brought on didn’t make a big enough difference for us like I expected.

“We have to do it the hard way with the replay but Southend are a good team.

“They play clever football which is hard to cope with and Gavin Tomlin up front is an excellent player who always causes problems.”
