Brentford have no new injury worries for the visit of leaders Tranmere.

But Kevin O'Connor and Farid El Alagui are still on the sidelines for the third-placed Bees.

Midfielder O'Connor is out for the long-term with an ankle injury and striker El Alagui is recovering from a knee problem.

Full-back Shaleum Logan and forward Marcello Trotta could return to the starting line-up after starting on the bench in Tuesday night's 2-1 FA Cup win over Southend, which secured an all-west London fourth-round tie against holders Chelsea.

Trotta last week agreed to extend his loan spell at Griffin Park from Fulham until the end of the season.

The in-form Bees will move to within one point of Rovers with a victory.
