Bees are worry free

Brentford have no new injury worries ahead of the visit of Bury.

Uwe Rosler's squad have spent the week warm-weather training in Dubai as they gear up for the npower League One promotion run-in.

Striker Farid El-Alagui was able to join the trip as he continues his rehabilitation from a long-term knee injury, but he is still some way from returning to action.

The only player absent was long-serving midfielder Kevin O'Connor, who is still sidelined with an ankle injury.

Rosler must decide whether to make changes after their promotion bid was dented by a 3-0 defeat at Yeovil last weekend.

Teenage left-back Jake Bidwell will be involved again after agreeing to extend his loan spell from Everton for another month.

Bury will assess the fitness of David Worrall and Trevor Carson.

A thigh problem ruled winger Worrall out of last weekend's surprise 2-0 win over Brentford's promotion rivals Doncaster, while goalkeeper Carson is nursing a hand injury.

Andy Bishop is set to keep his starting place in attack having opening the scoring against Rovers with a first Shakers goal since October.

Fellow forward Tom Hopper has returned to parent club Leicester.

Deadline day signing Carl Regan made his first appearance at right-back against Doncaster, while fellow full-back Euan Holden is chasing his debut having joined on non-contract terms.

Defenders Phil Picken (knee) and Adam Lockwood (groin) remain out for the season along with midfielder Shane Byrne (blood disorder).
