David Button: Faces a late fitness check

David Button: Faces a late fitness check

The Bees will check on goalkeeper David Button ahead of this weekend's action.

Button missed Tuesday night's 2-1 victory at Bristol City with a minor shoulder problem but is due to return to training ahead of the weekend, although Richard Lee will be on standby to deputise again.

Boss Uwe Rosler otherwise has a fully-fit squad to choose from as the Bees go in search of a third straight win.

Winger Sam Saunders is pushing for a start after climbing off the bench to score the opener at Ashton Gate, while midfielder Alan McCormack is set to continue at right-back in place of Shaleum Logan.

Luke Summerfield and Joe Jacobson are both doubts for Shrewsbury's trip to Brentford.

Midfielder Summerfield made an earlier than expected return after a groin injury to start Tuesday's 1-1 draw against Colchester but lasted just 55 minutes before being forced off due to the troublesome complaint.

Left-back Jacobson also sustained a groin problem of his own against the U's although he stands a greater chance of involvement at Griffin Park, with both players to be assessed as late as possible.

Otherwise, manager Graham Turner has no further injury or suspension concerns to contend with.
