All the Brentford injury news ahead of Luton Town clash

Published

on

Despite failing to win in their last three Championship games, Brentford remain fourth in the table and in a strong position to secure a place in the play-offs this season. 

The Bees will undoubtedly be looking to end that disappointing record this evening when they travel to Kenilworth Road to face bottom-of-the-league Luton Town.

The Hatters shouldn’t be underestimated, however, having won two of their last three in the league as they fight for their Championship lives.

With that in mind, Thomas Frank will want as much of his squad available to him as possible ahead of tonight’s game.

Speaking earlier this week, Frank revealed that midfielder Mathias Jensen would be missing for a number of weeks after suffering a hamstring injury against Birmingham City.

He added: “We don’t know exactly with hamstring injuries. It is not a high grade but not a low grade, so something in between.

“It’ll be weeks before he is available.”

After suffering a minor setback at the start of last week, it appears Brentford captain Pontus Jansson is making progress towards a full recovery once again.

The Swedish defender has been missing since January due to injury but Frank was very optimistic about his recovery.

He said: “He is going forward again, so that is good and hopefully he is soon available.”

1. Who came through the academy at Tottenham Hotspur?

Midfielder Sergi Canos and striker Nikos Karelis both suffered serious knee injuries back in October but Brentford’s head of medical Neil Greig has revealed they’re both making good progress towards a return and would be monitored over the next few weeks.

Kamohelo Mokotjo remains sidelined following his knee ligament injury against Leicester City in the FA Cup.

Greig indicated that the club would reassess the stability of South African midfielder’s joint in two weeks’ time and make clearer plans for a return to pitch-based training then.

The Bees head of medical also provided updates on the fitness of young duo Marcus Forss and Ellery Balcombe, who had both seen loan deals cut short due to injury.

The pair have both had surgery, Forss on a hamstring issue and Balcombe on a back problem, and are now in the early stages of their rehabilitation.
