Head coach Davids has missed the last two matches with a shoulder injury and watched from the sidelines as the Bees picked up an impressive 2-0 win over Bradford last weekend.

The Dutch legend expects to be fit for this week's trip to Rotherham but, just like any other player, he knows he will have to win his place back.

"I think I can be part of the group on Saturday," he said.
