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.
