Brentford manager Uwe Rosler has admitted that he has a very difficult decision to make when it comes to deciding who takes the number one jersey for the Bees’ trip to Scunthorpe.

Simon Moore is the man in possession after an impressive start to the league campaign and the Bees boss only chose him because of an injury to Richard Lee.

The former Watford man returned to the side for Brentford’s 1-0 win over Crawley Town in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy and may keep his place for the game at Glanford Park.

“Richard Lee proved that we had two very good goalkeepers in our squad,” Rosler said.

“Simon was very fortunate at the beginning of the season that Richard was injured.

“The decision that Simon would start was made when Richard was injured.

“Simon used that opportunity very well but you saw how good Richard Lee is. I have to think about who plays the next game.”

The German manager knows that his side face a tough game at a side that have lost three of their five home games this year, winning only once.

And Rosler called on his side to be clinical with their chances after being wasteful against the Red Devils on Tuesday.

“Wherever you go it’s a tough game,” he added. “This league is unforgiving.

“It doesn’t matter where we go and what we do we have to be on our toes and grind out results.

“We should have been two or three goals up on Crawley after 20 minutes and then late on we had to hold on so it evens itself out. We defended quite well. “
