Brentford boss Uwe Rosler was forced to bite his lip after his side let slip a two-goal lead to crash 3-2 at Huddersfield.

Gary Alexander converted a 21st-minute penalty for Town skipper Peter Clarke's foul on Marcus Bean, and then turned home a second at the near post eight minutes later. Alan Lee appeared to barge into Brentford goalkeeper Richard Lee before heading the ball over the goal-line and, after Jamie McCombe had equalised, striker Jordan Rhodes curled home a brilliant winner.

But Rosler said of Lee's opening goal: "I don't know what I can say without getting myself into trouble. The referee should have disallowed the goal. It completely changed the game."

When pushed for his views Rosler said: "You're trying to get something out of me, but I have to be careful. I don't want to be on the sidelines next week.

"We're all judged as managers and players and referees should be judged too. What happened was not right."

Town boss Lee Clark had sympathy for Rosler over the first goal, saying: "I haven't seen a replay, but 99 times out of 100 the goalkeeper gets the decision.

"It's almost unique that the attacker gets the decision.

"I have a lot of sympathy for Uwe. I can understand why he is frustrated and angry."

Clark added: "We started the game very poorly and it was not a Huddersfield Town performance.

"We started badly and were staring down both barrels."
