WATCH FOR PREDICTIONS FROM DAZZLING DAVE & MAGIC MOSS
Craig Dawson was injured during the Christmas Eve match against Chelsea and whilst this initially looked serious Gary O’Neil has suggested that it was actually a cut to his knee and he could be available for selection against Brentford.
Jean-Ricner Bellegarde, Boubacar Traore and Fabio Silva are all doubtful because of illness.
Pedro Neto returned to training last week but was not quite ready for the match against Chelsea.
Brentford defender Ben Mee begins a three-game ban following his sending off against Aston Villa. Frank Onyeka is also ruled out after accumulating five yellow cards, meaning the Bees could be without 10 players through suspension or injury.
