Rosler: Cup clash so important

Brentford manager Uwe Rosler has stressed the importance of reaching the third round of the FA Cup.

The Bees travel to League Two Bradford on the back of an eight-match unbeaten run, but their manager has warned his players that the Bantams cannot be taken lightly.

He told Bees Player: "I really want to get into the third round of the FA Cup because I know financially that gives us the opportunity to bring in one or two players later on in the season.

"Last season Stevenage were able to get two Premier League strikers in on loan for the last six weeks of the season thanks to their cup run and that ensured they ended up in the play-offs.

"I am working intensely now to make sure that we go out with the same attitude, intensity and desire against Bradford in order to win it.

"It is a very important game."
