Nicky Forster will be without the services of top scorer Charlie McDonald once again as Brentford prepare to take on Leyton Orient.

The striker is suffering from ankle ligament damage and has not featured since the 1-0 defeat against Brighton on March 8.

Sam Saunders will miss out for the second match in a row after failing to recover from an ankle injury. He is likely to return for the Bees' clash with Carlisle next Friday.

Karleigh Osborne looks set to make his 150th appearance for the club.

A Lewis Grabban strike settled matters when the two sides last met at Griffin Park.

Leyton Orient's Stephen Dawson is facing a race against time to be fit for the clash.

The midfielder sustained a calf strain in Tuesday's 1-0 victory at Hartlepool and may miss out.

Ben Chorley (knee) and Jason Crowe (ankle) are both major doubts.

Both defenders have been absent since Russell Slade's side were dumped out of the FA Cup by Arsenal earlier this month.

Top scorer Alex Revell will be looking to end his nine-game scoring drought.

The former Brighton striker has hit 14 goals this season and the Os have only lost twice when he has scored.
