Brentford get good news on Valencia

Brentford hope Joel Valencia will return to action next month after he avoided shoulder surgery.

The 25-year-old winger saw a specialist over the weekend after dislocating the joint against Wigan.

It was feared an operation would leave him sidelined for three months, but the summer signing could instead return in  around six weeks.

Valencia has made seven Bees appearances since signing from Polish club Piast Gliwice in the summer.
