Brentford have signed defender Dale Bennett from Watford on a month's loan as cover for Karleigh Osborne.

Osborne suffered a foot injury against Stevenage on Tuesday night, and Bennett, 21, goes straight into the squad for Saturday's visit of Chesterfield.

"Dale can cover both the centre-half and right-back positions," Bees boss Uwe Rosler told the club's official website.

"Karleigh picked up a ligament injury and we don't know how long he will be out for. We have taken Dale on a short-term loan and I am happy to have him in.

"It is very difficult to get good quality players in for a reasonable price so quickly."

Bennett arrives in west London just as another Hornets defender, Adam Thompson, went back to Vicarage Road following the end of his recent loan spell.
