Brentford manager Andy Scott has a goalkeeping dilemma for the visit of Rochdale.

Reading loanee Alex McCarthy was ineligible to face Hull in the Carling Cup on Tuesday night so Richard Lee was handed his debut and made a string of fine saves as the Bees ran out 2-1 winners.

Despite McCarthy being available again, Lee may now have done enough to keep hold of the shirt.

Winger Sam Wood is still missing with a back injury and is not expected to return for at least another week so Scott could name an unchanged line-up.

Striker Carl Cort was an unused substitute on Tuesday, the first time he has been involved this season having recovered from an Achilles injury.

Rochdale boss Keith Hill is set to stick with the same side that performed so admirably in the 3-2 Carling Cup defeat against Birmingham on Thursday night.

Hill will be hoping Dale's excellent performance at St. Andrews can inspire his newly-promoted side to their first League One victory of the season.

Young midfielder Joe Thompson is the Lancashire club's only major injury doubt having missed the trip to Birmingham on Thursday.

The 21-year-old picked up a knock in training during the week and faces a race against time prove his fitness.

Veteran midfielder and captain Gary Jones will be looking to continue his fine early season form having already netted four goals in five games this season.
