Football - Bees beset by injuries

Brentford have been hit by a spate of injuries ahead of the Capital One Cup trip to Derby.

PA Sport Report

Everton loanee Conor McAleny was stretchered off against Walsall on Saturday after suffering what boss Uwe Rosler described as a "very nasty" leg injury.

McAleny joins fellow striker Will Grigg (hamstring), left-back Jake Bidwell (ankle), midfielder Jonathan Douglas (knee) and goalkeeper Richard Lee (shoulder) on the sidelines.

Rosler used fringe players like Jack Bonham, Ben Nugent, Stuart Dallas and Paul Hayes in the first-round win over League Two Dagenham and may have to do the same at Pride Park against the Championship Rams.
