Brentford boss Andy Scott is likely to name an unchanged side for the visit of struggling Wycombe.

The Bees thumped Gillingham 4-0 at home last weekend and picked up no new knocks.

That means winger Lionel Ainsworth will have to wait a little longer for his full debut, after he made his first appearance as a substitute against the Gills having joined on loan from Huddersfield.

Sam Saunders has impressed on the wing since his recall to the side and is set to keep his place with Ainsworth on the bench again.

Bristol City loanee John Akinde should start in attack again after his impressive debut last weekend.

Goalkeeper Nikki Bull remains the only absentee as he recovers from shoulder surgery.

Wycombe will be without defender Adam Hinshelwood.

The former Aldershot centre-half has been ruled out for three weeks after picking up a knee injury in last weekend's embarrassing 4-1 home defeat to Yeovil, so Luke Oliver should start at Griffin Park.

Boss Gary Waddock could hand new signing Tom Heaton a starting role after he penned a loan agreement until the end of the season from Premier League giants Manchester United.

Veteran midfielder Gareth Ainsworth is carrying a calf injury and is expected to be out for another week, so he will have to wait for the chance to make his second debut but fellow new signing Kevin McLeod is available to manager Gary Waddock.

The former Colchester winger joined on a free transfer from Brighton last week and was an unused substitute in the Yeovil defeat.

Forward Jon-Paul Pittman has returned from a groin injury and is pushing for a start but Leon Johnson (hip), Lewwis Spence (knee), Matt Bloomfield (knee) and Ian Westlake (knee) are still out.
