Brentford v N Forest preview

Boss Mark Warburton will hope to keep changes to a minimum following the 4-1 derby success at Craven Cottage, having been able to give the likes of Alex Pritchard and Andre Gray a breather by taking them off during the second half.
However Alan Judge, Chris Long and Jon Toral, who have all played big roles for the Bees this season, are available for recalls should Warburton decide some players need a rest.
The only absentees are midfielder Lewis Macleod, who has recovered from a hamstring injury but is short of match fitness, and striker Scott Hogan following cruciate ligament damage.
Forest will check on Mo Barrow ahead of the trip to west London.
The on-loan Swansea forward was absent with a slight injury on Friday as a 2-1 home defeat to Wolves put a severe dent in the Reds’ outside chances of gatecrashing the play-offs.
It was a first loss at the City Ground for boss Dougie Freedman, who has plenty of options available should he wish to make any changes to his starting line-up on Monday.
Jack Hobbs, fit again after a persistent ankle injury, and Danny Fox provide alternatives in defence while midfielder David Vaughan and forwards Jamie Paterson and Dexter Blackstock, who scored Forest’s goal against Wolves, will also be hoping for recalls. Striker Matty Fryatt (Achilles) will remain out.
