The Bees boss praised his back five including Watford youngster Adam Thompson and Everton loanee Jake Bidwell

Brentford manager Uwe Rosler was delighted with his defenders after the 0-0 draw with Scunthorpe.

The Bees’ back five, consisting of Simon Moore, Adam Thompson (on loan from Watford), Jake Bidwell (on loan from Everton), Leon Legge and Harlee Dean had only made 130 appearances between them

“This was a game that a couple of weeks ago we would have lost, Rosler said.

“We now have a good spirit in the dressing room and you can see that the players are battling for each other.

“A little while ago I was critical of our defence because we could not keep any clean sheets.

“But we have worked hard on that and you can see the improvement.

“I thought we were the better team and did have chances to have won it, though not many.”

Moore had played 13 games in the league, Thompson has featured 19 times, while Bidwell has only made nine appearances.

Dean has only played 11 league games in his career and Legge has made 76.
