Brentford to check on Henrik Dalsgaard ahead of Reading clash

Brentford will check on Henrik Dalsgaard ahead of the visit of Reading.

The Danish defender had to be carried off on a stretcher after he appeared to be knocked out during the midweek defeat at Sheffield Wednesday.

Winger Sergi Canos remains sidelined by an ankle injury and striker Lasse Vibe is a week away with a foot problem.

Midfielder Lewis Macleod is back in full training after a long-term knee injury but needs some reserve games.

Dave Edwards is pressing for a starting place for Reading having made his debut as a substitute in last weekend's home defeat by Bristol City following a move from Wolves.

Record signing Sone Aluko is expected to feature, while fit-again Iceland forward Jon Dadi Bodvarsson should continue to lead the attack.

Midfielder John Swift is recovering from a hamstring problem, but the game against his former club probably comes too soon.

Defender Jordan Obita (ankle) and striker Yann Kermorgant (hip/groin) continue their rehabilitation.
