Brentford manager Uwe Rosler was delighted with youngsters Jake Bidwell and Adam Forshaw after his side’s 1-0 victory over Colchester on Saturday.

19-year-old Jake Bidwell is on loan at Griffin Park from Everton for the second time, while Forshaw, 20, made his switch from Goodison Park permanent this summer after a loan spell last season.

Bidwell looked assured at left back on his first start of the season, while Forshaw was a busy presence in Brentford’s midfield.

“I think both looked very good,” Rosler told London24.

The German reserved special praise for Bidwell, who slotted into the first team with ease despite the searing heat.

“Coming from development football I didn’t know if he would last the 90 minutes under these conditions.

“But he has willpower this kid, he wants it and this is why in football we say no pain no gain.”

Forshaw’s substitution in the 70th minute was met with disappointment by some sections of the home crowd, but Rosler explained it was due to an injury concern.

“The reason why I took off Adam Forshaw was for a niggle in the lower abdomen,” he said.

“He doesn’t want a long-term injury.”
