Miguel Llera will be missing from the Brentford defence.

The Spaniard serves a one-match ban for his red card at Oldham last weekend so Karleigh Osborne is set for a recall at centre-half.

Winger Sam Saunders, who has been out for a month with a knee injury, proved his fitness by playing 85 minutes for the reserves in midweek and should be added to the squad.

Striker Gary Alexander (knee) is still missing so Bristol City loanee David Clarkson will partner Clayton Donaldson in attack again after making his debut last week.

Defenders Shaleum Logan (ankle) and Leon Legge (hamstring) and winger Kirk Hudson (hip) remain in the treatment room.

Huddersfield club skipper Peter Clarke is hoping to return to the starting line-up.

Clarke has missed the last seven games after failing to win back his place in the side following injury but could be back in favour as Jamie McCombe starts his ban following his dismissal last week against Leyton Orient.

Clarke will be vying with on-loan Hull defender Liam Cooper, who has yet to start a league game for Town.

Alex Smithies remains sidelined following knee surgery, so Ian Bennett will continue in goal, but boss Lee Clark has no other injury or suspension problems.

Leading goalscorer Lee Novak will retain his place up front alongside Alan Lee or Jordan Rhodes, while the likes of Donal McDermott, Tommy Miller, Anton Robinson and Gary Roberts are all pushing for recalls.
