AFC Wimbledon will check on defenders Alan Bennett and Will Antwi ahead of the trip to Brentford in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

Skipper Bennett is closing in on a return to fitness following a hamstring injury and fellow centre-half Antwi has resumed full training following a hernia operation.

Charlton loanee Michael Smith is set to keep his place after his goalscoring display in the 2-0 victory over Fleetwood on Saturday.

But boss Neal Ardley may make a couple of changes with Jack Midson, Chris Arthur, Charlie Sheringham and Peter Sweeney pushing for recalls.

Brentford will be without Tony Craig and Will Grigg when they entertain AFC Wimbledon in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

Defender Craig serves a one-match ban for his red card in Saturday's goalless draw with Carlisle while striker Grigg, who came on as a half-time substitute after a hamstring injury, sustained another knock late on.

Left-back Jake Bidwell (ankle), goalkeeper Richard Lee (shoulder) and midfielder Jonathan Douglas (knee) remain sidelined while young loan striker Conor McAleny has gone back to Everton after breaking his leg last week.

Club captain Kevin O'Connor could get a run-out along with fellow midfielder Martin Fillo if boss Uwe Rosler makes changes.
