Maxime Colin and Ryan Woods battling to be fit for Blackburn clash

Brentford will check on the fitness of Maxime Colin and Ryan Woods ahead of the visit of relegation-threatened Blackburn.

Defender Colin missed the 1-1 draw at Fulham last weekend with a hip problem, and midfielder Woods was absent due to a foot injury.

Rico Henry will be absent again after a knee injury in training brought a premature end to his season.

Veteran midfielder Alan McCormack hopes to shake off a groin injury to make his 104th and final appearance for the Bees.

Tony Mowbray hopes Blackburn's players will fight through the pain barrier as they look to secure survival.

The Rovers boss revealed "one or two" unnamed members of his squad did not train this week due to knocks but expects everyone to declare their fitness regardless.

Only Corry Evans (groin) is definitely ruled out for a Blackburn side that will start Sunday in the relegation zone on goal difference alone, with both Nottingham Forest and Birmingham able to be caught at the end depending on their results.

Connor Mahoney, back on the bench against Aston Villa following a thigh problem, may come into Mowbray's thinking while Danny Graham is likely to retain his spot having scored the winner last time out.
