The franchise cometh

The franchise cometh

Brentford face unpleasant franchise club MK McDons at Griffin Park tomorrow, hoping that a number of key players will overcome injuries for what could be a tough match.

Jonathan Douglas and Marcello Trotta have both been struggling with knocks over the last week whilst the talismanic Harry Forrester was taken off with hamstring problems against Southend on Tuesday.

Uwe Rosler rested Adam Forshaw, Tony Craig, Shaleum Logan and Clayton Donaldson for the JPT loss and all should return to the team tomorrow.

Midfielders Jake Reeves and Sam Saunders put in decent shifts midweek and will hope that they are also in a chance of making Uwe's starting XI

MK, who sit third in League One, have former Bees Charlie Macdonald and Dean Bowditch on their books as well as the ever dislikeable Alan Smith. The long serving Dean Lewington - son of former Brentford manager Ray - is also likely to play.
