Adam Forshaw: One-match suspension

Team news for Saturday's League One clash between Brentford and Scunthorpe at Griffin Park.

Brentford will be without Adam Forshaw when they host the Iron.

The midfielder was sent off for two bookable offences, the second an alleged dive, during Tuesday night's 2-1 win at Crawley and serves a one-match ban.

Harry Forrester dropped out of the squad in midweek so he could return to vie with Toumani Diagouraga and Marcello Trotta for a place in the starting line-up.

On-loan Everton left-back Jake Bidwell was also rested at the Broadfield Stadium and is pushing to return.

Bees boss Uwe Rosler has no new injury worries but is still without Kevin O'Connor and Farid El Alagui.

Midfielder O'Connor is sidelined by a long-term ankle injury and striker El Alagui is recovering from a knee problem.

Scunthorpe manager Brian Laws hopes to have skipper Paul Reid and striker Akpo Sodje available for selection.

Reid has missed the last two games through illness, while Sodje missed the midweek win over Stevenage due to a knock.

Striker Matt Godden is also expected to return to the squad after he and team-mate Robbie Gibbons sustained whiplash in a car accident earlier this week.

The pair were lucky not to sustain more serious injuries as the car in which they were travelling was a write-off. Gibbons is still unavailable due to illness.

Midfielder Damien Mozika remains sidelined due to a hamstring injury but is hoping to return for at least the last 10 games of the season.

Laws, whose side have won four of their last six league games, has no other new injury or suspension problems.
