Bees manager Wally Downes, looking for a first league victory of 2003, has been boosted by the news that influential defender, Leo Roget is in contention for a place in the Brentford squad for the match against lowly Colchester United at Griffin Park on Tuesday.
Roget: set for a return?

Roget has not played a first team game since damaging a hamstring in the 3-0 FA Cup Fourth Round defeat to Nationwide Division One club, Burnley on 25th January.

Meanwhile, Stephen Hughes who made his full debut for the club in the 1-0 reversal at Blackpool at the weekend, looks set to retain his place in the line-up, as Stephen Evans is still struggling with an Achillies injury.

Star midfielder, Martin Rowlands also looks set to miss out, as he has not recovered from injury, whilst youngster, Lee Fieldwick, an unused substitute on Saturday, is likely to retain his place on the bench.

Downes is fully aware of the recent poor showing in front of goal, and as he admitted in the London Evening standard, "We are a little bit punch-drunk at the moment. We need some goals, and all the confidence that brings".
