Bees boss stung by winger blow

The winger limped out of Saturday's 1-1 draw against Walsall with a hamstring strain and is a major doubt. Goalkeeper Lewis Price missed out at the weekend through illness and is available, although he is likely to have to settle for a place on the bench with Arsenal loanee Wojciech Szczesny set to keep his place after an encouraging debut. Another new loan signing, Ipswich centre-half Pim Balkestein, impressed alongside youngster Karleigh Osborne in a new-look back four with Alan Bennett dropping to the bench again. Midfielder Sam Saunders and striker Carl Cort will push for places in the squad after missing out completely on Saturday.
