Brentford head coach Thomas Frank has revealed that Mathias Jensen is "touch and go" for the Bees' trip to Brighton and Hove Albion.

The midfielder has missed the last two games with an adductor injury, which has left the Bees light in midfield, but there's a chance the Dane could return on Wednesday.

In other team news, Kristoffer Ajer is out but Mikkel Damsgaard is available for selection for the first time since August.

“Kristoffer Ajer will unfortunately be out, probably for some weeks with a foot issue," Frank confirmed.

“Jensen will be touch and go, we are hoping he will be available for the game. Mikkel Damsgaard can be selected for the squad, so that’s a positive.” 

He added: “It seems, like everything, we go under the radar, but we have had key players out for a long period of the season, players that would normally be starters. 

“We’re probably missing, if you take Ivan Toney into that, close to five starters, maybe more.  

“But it’s not only the starters, in a three-game week like this, you want to bring in different players; I'm a big believer of using all five substitutes as well, so it will also change games tactically. 

“We’ve been extremely unlucky and big credit to the players who have been available.”

There have been 17 goals in the west Londoners' last five meetings with Wednesday’s opposition and, despite admitting that another goal-laden game would be good for the neutrals, three points is all Frank wants from the Bees’ trip to the south coast. 

Asked about the entertaining draw at Amex Stadium in April, Frank laughed: “I’d prefer to win! But 3-3 would probably be my second choice - that would be a great game for everyone involved. 

“Brighton are a very good team with very good players; it will be a tough challenge for us. 

“When we played them last year, they played a good game and I don’t think we played our best game.  

“But they’re doing well down there, [Roberto] De Zerbi is doing a good job, but we are up for it and we’re looking forward to it.”
