Brentford v Aldershot preview

Richard Lee keeps his place in goal for Brentford when they host Aldershot in the FA Cup.
Lee was recalled to the starting line-up for Tuesday night’s draw against Bournemouth after regular number one Ben Hamer got stuck in traffic on the M4.
With Hamer ineligible for the cup clash under the terms of his loan from Reading, former Watford keeper Lee gets another chance.
Loan winger Lewis Grabban also misses out as his parent club Millwall have not given him permission top play but Huddersfield loanee Robbie Simpson is available.
Gary Alexander missed out against Bournemouth after picking up a knock at Exeter on Saturday and will be checked over while fellow striker Carl Cort is a long-term absentee with a torn Achilles.
Aldershot defender Darren Jones returns for the trip.
Jones missed the 2-2 draw at Hereford in midweek after he was sent off against Bury last weekend but is available to come straight back into Kevin Dillon’s side.
However, striker Marvin Morgan and midfielder John Halls will serve the second of their three-game suspensions.
On-loan Bristol City forward Marlon Jackson will lead the line in Morgan’s absence after Damian Spencer injured his knee in training last week.
The former Cheltenham target man could be out for as long as three months.
The Shots have not beaten Brentford since they went into liquidation, with the last victory coming in September 1987.
