Brentford boss Uwe Rosler branded his side's second-half display in the 2-0 defeat by Tranmere "embarrassing".
Rovers romped to the comfortable away win thanks to goals from Robbie Weir and Andy Robinson either side of the break.
Rosler said: "Initially you have to earn the right to play good passing football and we did not do that.
"Credit to Tranmere - they closed us down whenever we had the ball and out-muscled us and I felt that in the second half it was a little bit embarrassing because we did not play anywhere near as well as we can.
"I've only been here eight weeks and we are just at the beginning and we have to expect that along the way we will get results like this."
