Brentford will be without defender Henrik Dalsgaard through suspension for the visit of promotion-chasing Leeds.

Dalsgaard was shown a red card for a professional foul during the first half of the 1-1 draw at Millwall on Good Friday.

Frenchman Julian Jeanvier should be involved again having been left out of the squad because of illness, along with defender Rico Henry, who continues to manage his return from a broken foot.

Forward Said Benrahma (ankle) and goalkeeper Daniel Bentley (shoulder) are both set to miss the rest of the campaign, while defender Yoann Barbet (ankle) and midfielder Lewis Macleod (hamstring) also continue their rehabilitation.

Leeds captain Liam Cooper looks set to miss out again with a muscle injury.

Centre-back Cooper suffered the problem during the warm-up ahead of the win over Sheffield Wednesday and sat out Good Friday’s surprise home defeat to relegation battlers Wigan.

Gaetano Berardi, fit again following a hamstring injury, is expected to again deputise.

Left-back Barry Douglas is a long-term absentee as he recovers from a knee problem.
