Brentford got help from above - Rosler

Published Add your comment

Uwe Rosler invoked the Hand of God to explain Brentford's stunning performance against Chelsea after watching them go within seven minutes of one of the great FA Cup shocks at Griffin Park.

In what has been a season of amazing upsets in cup competitions, Rosler's Bees almost topped them all after pushing the holders to the brink of a humiliating defeat. The npower League One high-fliers twice led but were denied by Fernando Torres' late equaliser in the 2-2 draw, setting up a replay at Stamford Bridge next month.

Chelsea might have even snatched a stoppage-time winner had Harlee Dean been penalised for handling Juan Mata's cross in the area, but Rosler said: "We deserved that luck from what we have put in compared to what Chelsea put in over the 90 minutes. There is a football god up there and he is on our side."
