In the stands: McParland will be watching alongside the fans...
Notts County will have Ian McParland missing from the touchline as he begins his touchline ban for a sending off in the 2-2 draw with Shrewsbury Town.

Jason Beardsley will not even feature on the bench tomorrow night, as he has finally decided to have break from action to allow treatment on a niggling thigh problem.

Therefore, Adam Tann is expected to slot in at right-back for the second game running in an unchanged back four.

Although Adam Nowland was expected to return to full-training this weekend, he is not likely to feature for another week or so.

Out for another two weeks is another long term casualty, Stephen Hunt, who is reaching the final stages of his recovery from a groin injury.

Brentford could welcome back defender, Brett Johnson, following his recovery

Back in action: Johnson may start for the Bees...
from a groin strain that has kept him out of the last three matches.

Either Johnson or Sam Wood could replace Ryan Dixon at left-back after he was withdrawn with a back problem against Luton in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy loss.

Gary Smith (hernia) will be missing in midfield, but Bees' boss, Andy Scott will welcome back a number of players that were rested in the midweek game.

Defenders, John Halls, James Wilson and Alan Bennett should all return, joined by midfielder, Marcus Bean.

Nathan Elder and Charlie MacDonald are also expected to be started up-front.
