League One side Brentford hope to bring in a goalkeeper on loan ahead of Saturday's clash with Sheffield Wednesday.
Back-up keeper Simon Moore faces a month on the sidelines with a shoulder injury, meaning boss Uwe Rosler had no cover for regular number one Richard Lee against Chesterfield last weekend.
"We're looking to bring someone in as we need to have a keeper on the bench," Rosler told the Hounslow Chronicle.
Meanwhile, Rosler has been boosted by the news defender Karleigh Osborne's foot injury is not as serious as first feared.
"He's got some ligament damage between the bones in his foot," added the German.
"It's not long-term. We're talking about weeks, not months."
