Notts vs. Brentford - Team News


Centre back Leon Legge is a doubt after being taken off during the weekend's victory over Bristol Rovers at Griffin Park, whilst on loan midfielder Adam Reed is definitely out having returned to his parent club Sunderland for treatment. Dutchman Pim Balkestein is likely to replace Legge if he is ruled out, whilst former Notts man Myles Weston provides much of the Bees' threat from midfield. Experienced duo Charlie MacDonald and Gary Alexander are likely to start upfront.

Probable Team:-

Richard Lee

Robbie Neilson - Karleigh Osborne - Pim Balkestein - Craig Woodman

Sam Saunders - Marcus Bean - Toumani Diagouraga - Myles Weston

Gary Alexander - Charlie MacDonald

Subs From - Moore, Legge, O'Connor, Bignall, Byrne, Grabban, Simpson

Notts County

Jon Harley is likely to be welcomed back after missing Friday's win over Charlton with a virus, whilst leading scorer Lee Hughes may also start after being rested. Alan Judge and David Martin are definitely ruled out, whilst on loan full back Stephen Darby remains a major doubt. Paul Ince is likely to continue with the 4-5-1 formation that has served the side well in their two consecutive victories recently. Febian Brandy may make his debut after signing until the end of the season.

Probable Team:-

Stuart Nelson

Carl Regan - Mike Edwards - Krystian Pearce - Jon Harley

Ricky Ravenhill - Kevin McDonald - Neal Bishop

Craig Westcarr - Lee Hughes - Alan Gow
