Norgaard and Ajer remain sidelined for Forest game

Brentford will again be without Christian Norgaard for Saturday’s clash with Nottingham Forest.

The Denmark international missed the 2-0 win over Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday with an Achilles injury that forced him off at half-time in last week’s 1-1 draw with Aston Villa.

Defender Kristoffer Ajer played for the club’s B team in a Premier League Cup semi-final win over Fulham on Thursday but won’t be fit to face relegation-threatened Forest.

The Bees have no fresh injury concerns but reserve goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha is out with a calf injury, with club record signing Keane Lewis-Potter and skipper Pontus Jansson both sidelined for the rest of the season.
