Brentford vs Sheffield United - Romaine Sawyers suspended for Brentford

Brentford will be without midfielder Romaine Sawyers through suspension for the Sky Bet Championship match against Sheffield United.

Sawyers was sent off for a second yellow card in the final minute of the 1-1 draw with Sunderland before the international break, when he had come on as a substitute for the closing stages.

Bees head coach Dean Smith confirmed there were no fresh injury concerns from players returning after international duty, with defender Chris Mepham having made his full international debut for Wales in China.

Defender Andreas Bjelland has stepped up his recovery from a calf problem but is not expected back in contention until Easter Monday. Rico Henry (knee) remains a long-term absentee.

Sheffield United expect to have both Welsh duo Lee Evans and David Brooks available following international duty.

Midfielder Evans was part of the senior squad for the trip to the China Cup, while Brooks travelled with the Under-21s for the match in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

Chris Basham will be back in the squad after missing the draw against Nottingham Forest following the birth of his child.

Midfielder Paul Coutts remains sidelined as he recovers from a knee problem.
