Brentford vs Fulham

Championship MatchDay 18 at Griffin Park

Friday 21st November 2014    KO: 19:45

Referee: David Coote



Jonathan Douglas will be back in the Brentford squad for the visit of Fulham.

Midfielder Douglas was an ever-present for the Bees this season until he was ruled out of the 3-2 win at Millwall last time out through suspension, so he is set to come straight back into the starting line-up.

Boss Mark Warburton has an almost fully-fit squad aside from long-term absentees Alan McCormack (ankle) and Scott Hogan (cruciate).

The Bees have won their last three matches and could move joint second with a victory over their derby rivals.


Fulham are in decent form, on a six-match unbeaten run in the league under new manager Kit Symons.

Goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli this week withdrew from the England Under-21 squad with a thumb injury so Gabor Kiraly will be on standby.

Symons will also check on defenders Fernando Amorebieta, who missed the 3-1 win over Huddersfield a fortnight ago with a knee knock, and Tim Hoogland following a pelvic problem.

Striker Adam Taggart is on the mend following a long-term groin issue but is not expected to be available just yet.
