Brentford boss Leroy Rosenior accepted criticism from fans who called for his dismissal following the FA Cup first round exit at the hands of Doncaster.
Rosenior took over as Brentford manager in June
"I have taken a lot of stick which is understandable but I can take that as I am a grown man," Rosenior said.
"The fans have got to keep the faith - I would feel the same if I was coming here but I'm glad they are directing it at me and not the players.
"We didn't perform or want the ball and paid for it. The players are deflated."
