Craig out for Bees

Brentford will again be without centre-back Tony Craig when they host Dagenham.

The defender has not featured for the Bees since their pre-season friendly with Celtic two weeks ago and manager Uwe Rosler has refused to put a timescale on his return.

Kevin O'Connor deputised on the opening day but Cardiff loanee Ben Nugent could be in line to make his competitive bow for the club.

Rosler is expected to make further changes and couldinclude striker Paul Hayes and midfielder Sam Saunders in his starting line-up.

Dagenham boss Wayne Burnett is weighing up possible changes.

The Daggers started the new League Two season with a disappointing 3-1 defeat at Fleetwood on Saturday, conceding twice in the opening 10 minutes.

Burnett was left frustrated with his side's defending, especially at set-pieces, and could be tempted to change things around for the tough assignment against a Bees side who lost out in last year's League One play-off final at Wembley.

The likes of Jake Reed, Brian Woodall and Afolabi Obafemi, among others, come into contention, with defender Luke Wilkinson and midfielder Matt Saunders still unavailable due to injury.
