Match Preview

Saunders worry for Bees Sam Saunders is an injury doubt for Brentford ahead of the visit of Colchester. The in-form winger limped out of the 1-0 win at Rochdale with an ankle knock which could be a recurrence of the injury which kept him out for three weeks recently. Striker Gary Alexander (knee) and defender Leon Legge (groin) missed out against Dale and will be checked over. Goalkeeper Richard Lee is still out with a shoulder injury and loan cover Trevor Carson has gone back to Sunderland for treatment on a knee problem, so rookie Simon Moore keeps his place with coach Simon Royce, 39, on the bench. Charlie MacDonald is also on the sidelines with an ankle injury and fellow forward Nicholas Bignall has returned to parent club Reading. David Perkins will be missing from the Colchester squad - but the midfielder should be back before the end of the season. Perkins feared his campaign was over when he suffered a hamstring injury against Sheffield Wednesday three weeks ago. But boss John Ward says the former Rochdale man has an outside chance of travelling to Yeovil next weekend. Ward has no new injuries to contend with but may make changes following last week's 4-1 drubbing at Carlisle. Centre-halves Magnus Okuonghae (ankle) and Pat Baldwin (Achilles) remain long-term absentees, while winger Simon Hackney has returned to the Community Stadium from his loan spell at League Two Oxford for treatment on a hamstring strain.

Match Report

Williams denies Bees Colchester keeper Ben Williams was the hero as his side earned a hard-fought 1-1 draw at Brentford. Williams pulled off a string of breathtaking saves to deny Brentford after the visitors had taken the lead inside 20 minutes. Ian Henderson broke the deadlock, reacting quickest to Steven Gillespie's mishit shot to head home from 12 yards. After that it was all Brentford as they pressed forward for an equaliser and only Williams' heroics kept his side in it. Myles Weston saw a far-post header brilliantly blocked by the keeper who then somehow tipped Karleigh Osborne's point-blank header over the bar from the ensuing corner. Brentford eventually clawed their way back into the game after 75 minutes when Sam Saunders curled a free-kick around the wall and inside the post from the edge of the box. Brentford could have wrapped up all three points in the dying minutes but Lewis Grabban skewed his effort wide and substitute Nathan Byrne was denied by the on-rushing Williams as injury time approached.
