Brentford V Sheff Wed at Griffin Park : Match Preview

28 December 2017
Ollie Watkins could make Brentford return

Brentford hope to welcome back Ollie Watkins when Sheffield Wednesday visit Griffin Park.

Watkins missed the 2-1 win over Aston Villa on Boxing Day with a foot injury sustained in last week's victory at Norwich but is expected to be available to face the Owls.

Club captain John Egan (head) and fellow defenders Josh Clarke (ankle) and Henrik Dalsgaard (heel) are doubts.

Midfielder Alan Judge could be in line for a first-team return more than 20 months on from suffering a broken leg at Ipswich, having been an unused substitute against Villa.

Lee Bullen will remain in caretaker charge of the Owls.

Bullen took the reins for the 3-0 win at Nottingham Forest on Boxing Day after Carlos Carvalhal left his position on Christmas Eve.

Gary Hooper sustained a knock at the City Ground and could miss out after Almen Abdi impressed off the bench.

Bullen will have to make do without the likes of Keiren Westwood, Jack Hunt, Tom Lees, Kieran Lee, Barry Bannan, George Boyd, Steven Fletcher and Fernando Forestieri.
