Craig out for Bees

Brentford will be without Tony Craig as they attempt to pile on the misery for neighbours Fulham in their Capital One Cup clash.

Defender Craig is suspended following his red card against Birmingham on Saturday so Harlee Dean is set to return to the back four.

Winger Moses Odubajo, who scored Brentford's equaliser in the 1-1 draw, has been carrying a slight back injury so he could be rested while boss Mark Warburton will make further changes with club captain Kevin O'Connor and goalkeeper Richard Lee among those likely to be involved.

Full-back Nico Yennaris (back), winger Sam Saunders (knee) and striker Scott Hogan (ankle) are set to miss out again.

Fulham make the short trip to Griffin Park for the first time in 16 years reeling from four straight defeats which have left them bottom of the Championship.

They are still without Australian striker Adam Taggart, who has yet to resume training following a back injury.

Argentinian defender Tiago Casasola could be involved for the first time after completing his move to the Whites from Boca Juniors on Friday.

Under-pressure manager Felix Magath admitted changes needed to be made after Saturday's 5-1 drubbing at Derby so the likes of Alex Kacaniklic, Moussa Dembele and Hugo Rodallega will come into contention for starts.
