Football - As you were for Bees

Brentford have no new injury problems ahead of the visit of Stevenage.

Uwe Rosler's side came through the weekend's game physically unscathed, but the Bees saw their winless league run extended to four matches with a 2-2 draw at home to Bury.

Brentford led twice but were pegged back by the League One strugglers and now only remain in the play-off places on goal difference.

But the Bees received a boost this week with the news that long-term injury duo striker Farid El-Alagui and midfielder Kevin O'Connor could return to training soon, which would allow them to feature before the end of the campaign.

El-Alagui has been out with a knee injury since October and could be back in three-to-four weeks while O'Connor suffered ankle ligament damage in November and has been set a timescale of four to five weeks.
