Match Preview

Forster waiting on Macdonald Brentford boss Nicky Forster is hopeful Charlie Macdonald will be fit to face League One leaders Brighton. The striker missed Saturday's 3-0 loss at Hartlepool with a dead leg sustained in training and will undergo a late fitness test. On-loan Sunderland midfielder Adam Reed, who had been suffering for a groin problem, made his long-awaited debut as a second-half substitute against Pools and, after impressing, could be in line for his first start. Defender Leon Legge and forward Lewis Grabban will also be targeting places in the XI. Sam Wood will miss out again as he continues his rehabilitation from a broken arm. He is set to see a specialist this week as he looks to return to full training. Brighton boss Gus Poyet has no new injury or suspension worries ahead of the trip. Centre-back Adam El-Abd again misses out as he completes a two-match ban for picking up 10 yellow cards this season. Tommy Elphick will, therefore, keep his place after taking El-Abd's spot in the Saturday's thrilling 4-3 win over Carlisle. Veteran defender Radostin Kishishev returned as a 70th-minute substitute against the Cumbrians after a month on the sidelines and will again take his place on the bench. On-loan West Brom forward Chris Wood is pushing for a starting place after appearing as a second-half substitute at the weekend. Long-term absentees Jim McNulty (foot), Jamie Smith (foot) and Alan Navarro continue to be unavailable.

Match Report

Bees left to curse Osborne show An own goal from Brentford defender Karleigh Osborne was enough to hand table-topping Brighton all three points in a thrilling clash at Griffin Park. But Gus Poyet's side had goalkeeper Casper Ankergren to thank for keeping them in the game with a string of reflex stops to deny Sam Saunders on three separate occasions. The midfielder forced superb saves from the edge of the box and a 30-yard free kick as Brentford dominated. But the Seagulls could have gone ahead as early as the eighth minute when Elliott Bennett's header was kicked wide by Bees' goalkeeper Richard Lee. Albion striker Glenn Murray forced another save from Lee on the half-hour mark as Brighton struggled to find their rhythm. It was end to end after the break and Brighton were awarded a penalty when Osborne was harshly adjudged to have fouled Murray in the box. However Lee did well to save Ashley Barnes' spotkick. With just over 15 minutes to go, Osborne's night went from bad to worse when he sidefooted a harmless-looking cross past Lee into his own net.
