Bees without Balkestein for Donny tie
Parent club Ipswich took the decision to recall the youngster from his emergency loan after he had impressed in his eight appearances for the Bees. Top scorer Charlie MacDonald is expected to return to the starting XI after serving his one-game ban for a red card he received in the Boxing day clash with Gillingham. On-loan Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny is unavailable due to the terms of his loan deal but he has returned to the UK following a leave of absence in Poland due to a back injury. The 19-year-old is expected to return to the squad for the trip to Brighton next week. Defenders James Wilson and Mark Phillips remain doubts although Ryan Dickson came through the clash against Charlton with no problems and will continue at full-back.
