Match Preview

Alexander set for Bees start Fit-again Gary Alexander could go straight into the Brentford starting line-up for the visit of Chesterfield. The striker has been out for almost two months with a knee injury but is now back in full training. Clayton Donaldson has been playing on his own in attack but boss Uwe Rosler said after Tuesday's home defeat by Stevenage that he wants to revert to two up front. He could either pitch Alexander straight back in or give a start to Mike Grella, who came on as a substitute in midweek. Karleigh Osborne is set to miss out after picking up a foot injury, and with fellow centre-half Leon Legge still sidelined with a hamstring problem, Rosler has drafted in versatile defender Dale Bennett on a month's loan from Watford. Chesterfield have no new problems. Manager John Sheridan made two changes against Rochdale in midweek after seeing his side slip to a fifth successive defeat at home to Hartlepool last Saturday, and it paid dividends as last season`s League Two champions halted their dire run with a 1-1 draw at Spotland. A change of formation saw Aaron Downes come into the defence while Lee Johnson went straight back into the midfield on his return from suspension. Midfielders Mark Allott and Mark Randall dropped down to the bench. Sheridan could be tempted to name an unchanged starting XI and stick with the 4-5-1 system that worked well on Tuesday night. Ahead of the game, Sheridan said: "It will be tough. They started the season really well but just lately they've had a few results that haven't gone their way. "But every time I've ever been to Brentford it's always been a tough game, they're a workmanlike side who will be in our faces but we need to go and try to win."M

Match Report

Debutant Bennett delivers for Bees A debut goal from Dale Bennett helped Brentford end their home hoodoo with a 2-1 win over struggling Chesterfield. The Watford loanee powered home a header eight minutes from time to add to Sam Saunders' opener midway through the first half. Saunders curled a beauty up and over the wall from the edge of the box after Niall McGinn had been bundled over in the 25th minute. The Spireites levelled just two minutes later when the Bees' defence failed to clear and Leon Clarke hammered home the loose ball from close range. Brentford squandered a hatful of chances with the luckless Clayton Donaldson the main culprit. But Bennett rose highest in the box to snatch the winner and end the Londoners' winless run that stretched back to August 20. Brentford's Jonathan Douglas was denied on the hour-mark when his rasping drive was saved by Greg Fleming and McGinn's one-on-one was also blocked by the goalkeeper. Clarke might have put his side ahead just before the home side's winner, but volleyed wide, while Alexander also saw a volley flash just wide in injury time.
