Myles Weston should be added to the Brentford squad for the visit of League One leaders Leeds.

The winger has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury but has been training this week and is expected to pass a late fitness check.

Boss Andy Scott therefore has a virtually fully-fit squad available with only goalkeeper Nikki Bull a long-term absentee following a shoulder operation.

Teenage winger John Bostock will play the last game of his initial month-long loan spell from Tottenham, although Scott should be able to extend his spell in west London.

Bostock is back with the Bees in one piece after returning to Spurs to play in an FA Youth Cup match in midweek.

On-loan trio Sam Vokes, Max Gradel and Hogan Ephraim will all return to contention for Leeds.

But skipper Patrick Kisnorbo is doubtful again due to the knee injury which has forced him to miss the last four matches.

Wolves striker Vokes, Leicester winger Gradel and QPR midfielder Ephraim were all ineligible for the FA Cup replay win over Kettering.

Manager Simon Grayson must decide whether to recall Vokes to the starting line-up or stick with Luciano Becchio alongside Jermaine Beckford.

Andrew Hughes also returned to the starting line-up against Kettering after a groin injury, as did Aidan White, yet to start a league game this season for Leeds, while on-loan Tony Capaldi is in contention.

Defender Richard Naylor, midfielder Bradley Johnson and goalkeeper Shane Higgs have all returned to training after long-term injury but are not yet ready for first-team action.
