Brentford have no fresh injury concerns ahead of Saturday’s trip to Crystal Palace.

And some first-team players could return soon, head coach Thomas Frank revealed at his pre-match press conference.

Shandon Baptiste missed Wednesday night’s defeat to Wolverhampton Wanderers with a “minor foot injury” and is being assessed ahead of the weekend.

Fellow midfielder Josh Dasilva is likely to feature next Friday when Brentford welcome Wolves to Gtech Community Stadium for the third round of the Emirates FA Cup, while defender Kristoffer Ajer “could be available” for the Bees’ game against Nottingham Forest on 20 January.

Ivan Toney, who was responsible for 24 goal contributions (20G, 4A) in the Premier League last season, is available for Forest’s visit to west London.

Toney’s eight-month ban comes to an end on 16 January, and Frank is looking forward to having him available again.

“To get Ivan back will be like signing an unbelievably good Premier League striker,” he said.

“Ivan is training very well on and off the pitch and he’s looking forward to finally contributing to the team.

“I see at least the same determination and willpower to want to train well and be ready to play. Maybe a tiny more, in terms of wanting to come back and be at his best. It is only positive.”

The Bees boss also confirmed that Aaron Hickey and Kevin Schade “are not in the picture for the next month.”
