Toumani Diagouraga will be missing from the Brentford side which hosts Swindon.

The midfielder was sent off for receiving two yellow cards towards the end of Sunday's Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat by Carlisle and serves a one-match ban.

Marcus Bean, who came on as a half-time substitute at Wembley, is likely to get the nod in the centre.

Goalkeeper Richard Lee was close to making his comeback from a dislocated shoulder for the final but suffered a setback in training two days before and could now miss the rest of the season.

Charlie MacDonald is still on the sidelines with an ankle injury but fellow striker Robbie Simpson could be added to the squad after recovering from his ankle problem.

Phil Smith is set to continue in goal for Swindon.

Smith was required to deputise for David Lucas after he sustained a back injury in the warm-up prior to last weekend`s 1-1 draw at home to Hartlepool.

With Lucas still sidelined, Smith gets the chance to make amends for his howler which gifted Pools the opening goal at the County Ground.

Defender Kevin Amankwaah also looks set to miss out again with the knee injury that ruled him out against Hartlepool while long-term absentees Vincent Pericard and Milan Misun (both knee) continue to watch from the stands.

On-loan midfielder Alassane N`Diaye is again pushing for his first Town start as he increases his game time week by week, playing the final 20 minutes last Saturday.
