BRENTFORD have been rocked by the news that Mark Phillips will be out until Christmas with a knee injury.
The no-nonsense centre-back was hauled off at half time in the defeat at Exeter last week.
And Bees boss Andy Scott revealed Phillips will not return until the festive period at the earliest.
He said: "He's going to be out for at least six weeks. He's got a problem with his knee, and saw a specialist this week to determine exactly how long it's going to be."
