Brentford have problems in attack ahead of the home game against Yeovil.

Striker Carl Cort suffered a foot injury during Tuesday night's win over Tranmere and looks set to miss out while on-loan winger Lewis Grabban has been recalled by Millwall.

Ben Strevens is set to earn a recall alongside top scorer Charlie MacDonald up front while Sam Saunders or Lionel Ainsworth could be handed a start on the flank.

Midfielder Marcus Bean was sidelined in midweek with a hamstring injury and remains a doubt along with centre-half Pim Balkestein, who has missed two games due to a groin problem.

Defenders Alan Bennett (ankle), Mark Phillips (knee) and Ryan Dickson (hamstring) are still in the treatment room.

Yeovil forward Aidan Downes will be hoping to be passed fit.

The young Irish winger was ruled out of last Saturday's 1-0 home defeat by Southampton with a troublesome knee injury.

Downes is not Yeovil's only injury concern, though, as striker Sam Williams, who has missed the last few weeks with a knee injury, has been ruled out for a month and will not play again this term.

In his absence Dean Bowditch has taken on the responsibility of leading the line, last week with the inspirational Gavin Williams tucked in behind him in a 4-4-1-1 formation.

Yeovil, in 17th place, are five points above the relegation zone with three games to go.
