Brentford manager Uwe Rosler has called on Stuart Pearce to come and watch Bees goalkeeper Simon Moore ahead of the 2013 under-21 European championships.

The 22-year-old, who is still eligible to represent his country given the ruling of the competition, has been in stunning form for the west Londoners.

“I can’t believe there are many better under-21 goalkeepers in England,” Rosler said.

“I can’t believe that because he’s playing week-in, week-out.

The German manager was delighted with his side’s spirit as they produced a magnificent performance to beat Sheffield United by two goals to nil.

“We have an unbelievable team spirit,” the Bees boss said. “We have players of quality in each department. Harry Forrester injected energy for us.

“Jake Bidwell, at 20, he was unbelievable. He didn’t do one mistake.

“Simon Moore was the match winner.”

Brentford have struggled with injury problems in the past few weeks and that has caused a problem in training.

“We kept the training very short and we outclassed the best team in the league,” Rosler added. “We were unbelievable [against Sheffield United].

“We have the youngest team in the league (the average age against the Blades was 22 and a half). I’m speechless. I’m so proud.

“We just need to keep that going. There are a lot of people saying the wrong things. We have the same budget.

“It will be a challenge for us because there’s something growing and I’m so proud to be the manager.”

And Rosler warned the Bees’ League One rivals that Brentford will be even better when they have their injured players returning.

“I think we will get better when we have players coming back from injury,” he added.

“Tom Adeyemi will be crucial for us.

“Jonathan Douglas and Leon Legge will be back soon as well.

“Unfortunately, Kevin O’Connor and Farid El Alagui are out for the year.”
