Head2Head & Team News - Brentford (A)

Last updated : 29 August 2008 By Deano
The Millers go into their fourth league game of the season at Griffin Park tomorrow looking to keep up their 100% record, and reduce their defecit to minus 5 following their points deduction.

Extra time against Wolves in midweek yet again hit the squad hard, but there's brighter news on the injury front.

Although Marc Joseph is expected to miss out again, captain Pablo Mills and striker Ryan Taylor made substitute returns on Tuesday night and Mills could be inline for a recall to the starting line up. Taylor could well settle for a place on the bench again after impressive displays by Drewe Broughton and dangerman Reuben Reid.

Elsewhere Marc Newsham netted in the 3-3 reserve draw with Barnsley this week and is now fit again for selection, leaving good competition up front with Mark Burchill chomping at the bit for a start. Alex Rhodes returns to his former club, as does Reid who spent time on loan with the Bees last season, whilst newest recruit Andy Nicholas should continue at left back.

Brentford, managed by Andy Scott, brother of former Miller Rob, have two wins from their opening three matches in League Two but have several injury doubts.

Gary Smith, Sam Wood and Ryan Dickson are all a doubt although Smith is back in training with the squad. Their main scoring threat comes from Glenn Poole and Charlie MacDonald - who was briefly linked with a move to Rotherham over the summer. Their points tally thus far comes from an impressive 4-0 win over Grimsby as MacDonald netted a brace - which was followed up last week by a 1-0 win at Barnet, as Poole netted from the spot.

Here's the head to head record, we'll have our on the march guide to Brentford later.
