Brentford look set to be without defender Leon Legge when they host Exeter on Friday night.

The centre-half is struggling with a calf injury and is not expected to be available so Karleigh Osborne or David McCracken will partner Pim Balkestein at the back.

Sam Saunders is still not fit following a hamstring problem and fellow winger Sam Wood is recovering from a broken arm.

Striker Carl Cort remains a long-term absentee with a torn Achilles.

Long-serving skipper Kevin O'Connor should keep his place in midfield after signing a new contract this week.

The clash is the first of two meetings in four days between the sides, with Exeter due back at Griffin Park on Tuesday in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

Exeter could hand a start to goalkeeper Artur Krysiak.

Regular stopper Paul Jones has conceded 11 goals in his last four league appearances and manager Paul Tisdale has a fit-again Krysiak at his disposal after illness.

Midfielder James Dunne recovered from illness to start against MK Dons in a 1-1 draw and should continue alongside Ryan Harley, who will remain at the club after a bid from Brighton was rejected.

Leading-scorer Jamie Cureton scored his ninth league goal of the season against the Dons, in a week where he committed himself to the club until the end of the season, and should partner striker Richard Logan at Griffin Park.

The 35-year-old faced a barrage of abuse from Bees fans at St James' Park earlier this season. Cureton scored the goal for Reading in 2002 that secured the club's promotion at the London outfit's expense.
