UWE Rosler has revealed Dale Bennett could return to Brentford before the completion of his loan spell.
The Brentford boss feared the Watford defender had played his last game for the Bees after suffering a freak knee injury in training a fortnight ago.
However, the 21-year-old is due to begin light training later this week, and has an outside chance of being back for the trip to Rochdale at the end of the month.
Rosler said: “We feared the worst but the scans showed no major damage.
“He's improving by the day and could be back in light training with Watford by the end of the week.”
