Football - Bidwell blow for Bees

Jake Bidwell is a major doubt for Brentford ahead of the visit of Walsall.

PA Sport Report

Defender Bidwell was forced off just 15 minutes into last weekend's 1-1 draw at Gillingham with an ankle injury.

Javi Venta came on at right-back - with Shaleum Logan moving across to Bidwell's left-back position - and the Spaniard could now make his full league debut.

Elsewhere midfielder Jonathan Douglas is still recovering from a summer knee op and goalkeeper Richard Lee remains sidelined following shoulder surgery.
