Brentford manager Uwe Rosler is well aware of the importance of tomorrow’s FA Cup third round meeting with Southend.
The Bees lost to the Shrimpers in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy but the chance of reaching the fourth round for the first time since 2006 is important to the manager.
“Everybody in our camp from Number 1 to the bus driver knows how important the Southend game is for us and there is a big reward at stake if we can be in the draw on Sunday,” Rosler told the club’s official website.
“It will be a fantastic achievement to reach the Fourth Round but we lost in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy against them.
“I felt we performed well on the day but the circumstances and the type of goals we conceded that game will not happen every time we play them but they are dangerous.
“They are a top side in League Two and the pitch will be heavy so that will be playing into their hands not our hands but that is no excuse.
“We are a top side and we have good options and the players who are going out on Saturday all have a duty to overcome that difficult hurdle.
“We have an agreement with the players that when we achieve our goals in a certain period, and the next period ends at 5pm on Saturday, there will be a reward for the players.”
