UWE Rosler heaped praise on his young Brentford side after they came from behind to beat promotion rivals Swindon Town last night.
The Bees trailed to Simon Ferry's opener after Harlee Dean had been caught in possession, but the hosts hit back through second-half goals from substitute Sam Saunders and Clayton Donaldson to move up to third in the table.
Seven of Brentford's starting XI were under 22, and Rosler was pleased with how his young guns responded after the were ripped apart by Swindon in the first half.
He said: “I’m just so happy. The way we fought back was more like us.
“What Swindon did to us in the first half was impressive. I thought ‘they can’t go at that tempo for 90 minutes’ and they fell off in the second half.
“They couldn’t play with the same intensity and that allowed us to get on top of them. But credit to Swindon, who are the best team we have played this season.
“To be outplayed in the first half and come back and win gave me the most pleasure and I think everybody in our camp needed that - to come back against a top team and beat them.
“We had seven players under the age of 22, so you can see the potential the team has. Good players learn quickly – and we have good players.
“In the last month things have gone against us and when we have conceded the first goal we’ve never looked like coming back, but that was more like us.
“We’ve lacked a bit of confidence in the last month and to see that fighting spirit was fantastic.”
