Brentford boss Andy Scott has some selection dilemmas ahead of the home game against MK Dons.

Scott has a virtually fully-fit squad to choose from with goalkeeper Nikki Bull the only long-term absentee with a shoulder injury.

He sprang a couple of surprises at Leeds last weekend when centre-half Mark Phillips was preferred to Danny Foster at right-back and Sam Saunders made way for the more defensive Sam Wood on the wing.

The Bees earned a creditable 1-1 draw against the promotion contenders but Scott may revert to a more attacking line-up for their first home game in four weeks.

Strike duo Ben Strevens and Charlie MacDonald are likely to get the nod up front again with Carl Cort starting on the bench.

MK Dons manager Paul Ince will wait on the fitness of defender Danny Woodards before naming his side.

Woodards came off after just 18 minutes of the win over Swindon in midweek after he thought he had pulled a muscle but the club`s medical staff believe he will be fit to face the Bees.

James Tunnicliffe has played the final game of his loan spell from Brighton but Ince is looking to extend the deal in time for kick-off at Griffin Park.

Striker Sam Baldock was pencilled in to make his return from a knee injury this weekend but he has not made as much progress as was expected and he could again be missing.

Stephen Gleeson (ankle) and Darren Powell (knee) remain out as Ince`s side look to keep up their unlikely play-off challenge.
