Brentford have no new injury worries ahead of the visit of Shrewsbury.
But manager Uwe Rosler has said he will make changes to his starting line-up following Saturday's 1-1 draw with leaders Tranmere.
Midfielder Toumani Diagouraga and striker Farid El Alagui will be hoping for recalls after they were left out at Prenton Park.
Adam Forshaw could also return in midfield after coming on as a sub at the weekend.
The former Everton youngster has been playing despite a niggling abdominal problem recently.
Defender Scott Barron missed out at Tranmere with an ankle knock but if he can shake it off he will be on the bench along with goalkeeper Richard Lee, who has been troubled by knee and shoulder injuries but is now fit.
Shrewsbury boss Graham Turner could opt to make a couple of changes to his starting XI.
Turner watched his side under perform as they went down 1-0 at home to Swindon at the weekend and that could result in new faces being introduced at Griffin Park.
"On Saturday we were probably disappointed with one or two performers but I certainly know they can play a lot better than they did, even given the quality of the players they are now coming up against (in League One),'' Turner told Shrews Player.
"We've got to put that right now at Brentford.''
Loan signings Lee Collins and Sam Winnall were both handed debuts against the Robins and will hope to retain their places.
Left-back Collins came in for the injured Joe Jacobson, who has been ruled out for at least four weeks with an ankle injury, while striker Winnall replaced Terry Gornell, who stepped off the bench midway through the second half.
