Duo doubtful for Bees

23 August 2010 01:00
Brentford will check on Carl Cort and Sam Wood ahead of the Carling Cup meeting with Hull. Striker Cort looks set to miss out again with the Achilles problem which has sidelined him since pre-season, while winger Wood also sat out Saturday's draw at Swindon with a back injury. Midfielder Nicky Adams will hope to make his full debut after coming on as a substitute at the County Ground following his switch from Leicester. Defender Pim Balkestein is likely to miss out again after being dropped in favour of the impressive Karleigh Osborne at the weekend. Striker Kirk Hudson is still struggling with a groin problem and will have to wait a little longer to make his debut.
