BRENTFORD face a defensive crisis for Saturday's trip to Stockport.
Bees boss Andy Scott expects Leon Legge and Mark Phillips to miss the clash through injury, while Alan Bennett is suspended after his red card in last night's defeat at Brighton .
That leaves Karleigh Osborne and rookie Fraser Franks as Brentford's only recognised centre-halves.
He said: "It gives us a massive problem. Leon Legge looks like he's going to miss Saturday. At half-time I was close to taking Leon off as well as Mark.
"We tried to get through the game without any more injuries but it's a kick in the teeth.
"Mark's knee problem has flared up again. He couldn't even walk up the steps to the changing room."
