Brentford play managerless Hartlepool at Griffin Park tomorrow in League One. Neal Cooper resigned as gaffer of the visitors this week so Micky Barron takes charge as caretaker – ten months after he led ‘Pool to defeat at Griffin Park in a similar capacity.

Hartlepool are at the bottom of League One after a winless run of twelve games but will be hoping to turn things around in West London tomorrow.

Brentford will be bouyed by the late win over Coventry City on Tuesday night and – despite pressure from the crowd – Uwe Rosler looks set to persevere with the out-of-sorts Paul Hayes up front alongside Clayton Donaldson. James Spencer waits in the wings.

Elsewhere Rosler is expected to make few changes, despite his tinkering tendencies, with an almost fully fit squad to choose from.

Sam Saunders is likely to miss the game again due to an injury picked up in training whilst Ryan Fredericks returned to Spurs yesterday.

Hartlepool bring two pantomime villains to Griffin Park in the form of goalkeeper Scott Flinders (who threw two young Bees fans to the floor a couple of seasons ago with a bit too much relish) and gigantic pain in the arse veteran mule Steve Howard.
