Roerslev admits Brentford relegation fears

Brentford wing-back Mads Roerslev admits he fears relegation from the Premier League this season.

The Bees are in a tricky position that could see them move into the drop zone if they struggle to win matches.

Their next run of games includes Arsenal, Manchester United, Brighton and Aston Villa in the next five matches.

“We know every single point is crucial for us right now," said Bees defender Roerslev after a 2-2 draw with Chelsea.

“Thomas has said one win could be the start of an unbeaten run. We have this feeling.

“Close [on Saturday], but we had a really good performance in the second half and there's a lot to build on from that.

“We have something like seven really big players injured. Of course, it's not ideal. We have to stop giving silly goals away.

“I fear it [relegation], but it's not something the next game is depending on. We are not satisfied with our performances for the last couple of weeks.

“We still have a good chance to finish in a decent place with 11 games left."
