Loan duo ruled out of FA Cup replay
Scott will be without on-loan pair John Bostock, who is away with the England Under-19 squad, and James Wilson, who is on international duty with Scotland Under-21s. The duo played an integral part in the Bees' 2-2 draw with Millwall at the weekend, and their absence will give some of those who started on the bench a chance to shine. Brentford have no fresh injury worries or suspensions heading into the clash with the Tynesiders. Lewis Price will start in goal once more with Nikki Bull still ruled out after a shoulder operation, while centre-half Mark Phillips remains a doubtful starter with an ankle injury.
