Football - Trotta staying with Bees

Marcello Trotta is available for Brentford's FA Cup third-round replay against Southend.

The Italian striker has extended his loan deal from Fulham, which was due to expire after Saturday's 2-0 win over Oldham, until the end of the season.

Manager Uwe Rosler made a few changes for the first meeting between the sides, a 2-2 draw in Essex last weekend, but is likely to field his strongest team with the prospect of a visit from holders Chelsea in round four for the winners.

Toumani Diagouraga may have earned a place in the starting line-up after impressing as a substitute against Oldham.

Fellow midfielder Kevin O'Connor (ankle) and striker Farid El Alagui (knee) remain on the sidelines with long-term injuries.
