BOSS Uwe Rosler was pleased with the way his Brentford side coped with the tough conditions at Shrewsbury's New Meadow this afternoon.
A wet and muddy pitch made it difficult for Brentford to play their usual passing game, as did Adam Forshaw and Harry Forrester being rested.
But the Bees still managed to grind out a goalless draw against an impressive Shrewsbury side, who also held them to a 0-0 stalemate at Griffin Park earlier in the season.
Rosler said: “ It was a fair result and I'm very happy with the point. At this time of year it's all about just picking up the points.
“It was a poor pitch and difficult conditions, but we coped well with it. It was a pitch for going long, and we showed we can mix it up.
“In the first half we didn't have enough going forward, but we started with two holding players after the break and were far more offensive.
“We knew they would be playing it long to Marvin Morgan, and in him and Jon Taylor they had threats on the break.
“They (Shrewsbury) had a good game at our place, and both teams were pretty equal again. I can live with that, especially with some of the other results in our division.”
