Brentford Vs Gillingham, Sat 6 Feb 2010

Published Add your comment

John Akinde will be added to the Brentford squad for the visit of Gillingham.

The striker has joined on a month's loan from Bristol City and will push to make his debut at Griffin Park.

On-loan Huddersfield winger Lionel Ainsworth is in line to make his belated first appearance after last Saturday's trip to Oldham was called off.

Boss Andy Scott has also secured extensions to the loan deals of Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny and Ipswich defender Tommy Smith and both will start.

Last week's postponement has given the players extra time to get over any bumps and bruises so Scott has a virtually-full strength squad with keeper Nikki Bull (shoulder) the only injury absentee.

Gillingham will be without a trio of players.

Defender Garry Richards has a severe bout of conjunctivitis and will not feature, while Simon King has only recently started jogging following an ankle injury that has kept him out all season.

Jacob Erskine also has a knock, although it is unlikely he would have been selected by boss Mark Stimson.

Striker James Walker could be in line for a debut after he joined earlier this week following his release from Southend.

Stimson has no further injuries or suspensions to contend with as he attempts to mastermind a first away win of the season and put some breathing space between themselves and the clubs in the relegation zone.
