Aldershot v Brentford preview

John Halls and Marvin Morgan return from suspension for Aldershot’s FA Cup replay with Brentford.
The duo have missed the last three games through suspension after recent red cards but return to bolster Kevin Dillon’s squad.
Morgan remains the Shots’ top scorer this season as the club have not won since his dismissal at Bury last month.
Defender Anthony Charles is expected to recover from a slight hamstring strain and veteran winger Glen Little is also likely to start.
Midfielder Manny Panther had stitches in a head cut suffered during Saturday’s 2-0 defeat at Macclesfield but may be fit to play after coming off in the first half.
On-loan Bristol City striker Marlon Jackson is available after the Robins gave him permission to feature in the cup tie.
Brentford have been hit by a defensive crisis ahead of the FA Cup replay against Aldershot.
Boss Andy Scott is without both his first-choice centre-backs through suspension after Pim Balkestein was sent off against MK Dons on Saturday and Karleigh Osborne collected his fifth booking of the season.
With David McCracken still sidelined with a calf injury, Leon Legge is the only recognised centre-half available so right-back Michael Spillane could be asked to fill in.
Keeper Ben Hamer is ineligible under the terms of his loan from Reading so Richard Lee continues in goal with veteran Simon Royce added to the bench.
Striker Carl Cort remains a long-term absentee with a torn Achilles.
