Brentford are hoping Leon Legge will be fit to face Notts County at Griffin Park.

The centre-half suffered a back injury midway through the second half of Saturday's 1-0 win over Bristol Rovers and was replaced by Pim Balkestein.

If Legge is passed fit Nicky Forster should name an unchanged side as he looks to maintain his unbeaten start to life as caretaker boss.

That would mean long-serving skipper Kevin O'Connor starting on the bench again despite recovering from a groin injury.

Forster will still be without on-loan midfielder Adam Reed, who has gone back to Sunderland for treatment on a groin problem.

Winger Sam Wood is the only other absentee as he continues to recover from a broken arm.

Jon Harley is included in the Notts County squad.

Illness forced the defender to withdraw from the pre-match warm-up against Charlton but the full-back will be available to face the Bees.

Manager Paul Ince will select from the same squad that beat the Addicks 1-0 at Meadow Lane.

Ince has options available should he wish to make changes to his starting line-up. On-loan midfielder Conor Clifford and striker Lee Hughes made substitute appearances against Charlton, while defenders Liam Chilvers and Graeme Lee and midfielder Lewis Gobern were also on the bench on Friday night.

However, midfielder Alan Judge (foot) and winger David Martin (abductor strain) remain on the sidelines.

The game at Griffin Park is the Magpies' first away league fixture since drawing 1-1 at Hartlepool on January 25.
