Barron poised for Bees debut
Scott Barron is set to make his Brentford debut in the League One opener at Bury.
Barron completed his move across London from Millwall earlier this week and is likely to go straight in at left-back. Striker Farid El Alagui has shaken off a tight hamstring and is pushing for his first appearance following his summer switch from Falkirk while teenage winger Ryan Fredericks could also be handed a full debut. Fredericks played the last 20 minutes of Saturday's 1-0 League Cup reverse at Walsall after completing a loan move from Tottenham 24 hours earlier. But midfielder Jake Reeves will miss out as he begins a three-match ban following his red card for a reckless challenge at the weekend, so Toumani Diagouraga could start in the centre.
