Brentford are refusing to get carried away by their League One promotion credentials ahead of a crucial showdown with Sheffield United.

Uwe Rosler's side travel to Bramall Lane on Saturday lunchtime having climbed to second in the table after winning four of their last six matches.

That run of form has seen Brentford overtake United, who have fallen to fourth and were hammered 4-0 by Stevenage last weekend, but they remain focused.

Sam Saunders told Sky Sports News: "We are still the underdogs, because Sheffield United are such a big team. But we are going to attack them."

He added: "The play-offs were the ambition at the start of the season. But with eight games still to go, we are in the mix for automatic promotion."

Brentford assistant boss Alan Kernaghan also wants the club to remain calm and not take their eye off the ball.

"We have certainly got to hope that it is possible," said Kernaghan of promotion. "But, with eight games left, there is still a lot of water left to go under the bridge."
