Brentford pen pictures
Paul Evans
Skipper Paul Evans is Brentford's key player

By Ian Westbrook

Outstanding shot-stopper and Icelandic international who joined Brentford from Hiberinan in the summer. Huge hands legacy of his days as a basketball player.

31 PAUL SMITH (Goalkeeper)
Signed from Carshalton as understudy to Gottskalksson. Appearance against Southend was only his second substitute outing of the season but made his name that night.

25 MICHAEL DOBSON (Defender)
Versatile youth team product who has established himself in the side since the end of last year. His father George played for Brentford in the 1960s. Injury doubt for final.

19 PAUL GIBBS (Defender)
Another injury doubt after injuring a hamstring. The fans' favourite joined from Plymouth in the close season and is dangerous at set pieces.

32 JAY LOVETT (Defender)
Playing in Dobson's absence. Lanky defender signed from Crawley after impressing against the Bees in a pre-season friendly.

Darren Powell
Darren Powell has attracted widespread interest
5 DARREN POWELL (Defender)
Central defender in third season at Griffin Park after signing from non-league Hampton. Commanding presence in the air and on the ground.

8 GAVIN MAHON (Defender)
A revelation since moving back from midfield to sweeper in November. A series of superb performances at the back make him crucial to Brentford's hopes.

Unfussy former Arsenal and Southampton defender currently out injured. Experienced and calm under pressure at the back.

23 DAVID THEOBALD (Defender)
Solid defender signed from Ipswich 20 months ago, currently filling in for Marshall.

Paul Evans
Paul Evans is inspirational
7 PAUL EVANS (Midfielder)
Captain who leads by example with his 100% commitment. Signed from Shrewsbury, Evans possesses a powerful shot and has scored some spectacular long-range goals.

12 MARTIN ROWLANDS (Midfielder)
Former Republic of Ireland under-21 international midfielder who has talent to go on to greater things. Tough in the tackle and produces some precision passes.

15 IVAR INGIMARSSON (Midfielder)
Ex-Iceland under-21 midfielder who is the Bees' third injury worry. Played a lot of the season at centre-half and is equally comfortable in either position.

14 TONY FOLAN (Midfielder)
Another ex-Republic of Ireland under-21 star. Scored two memorable goals in his debut season but has largely been confined to the bench this term.

33 MATT SOMNER (Midfielder)
Just progressed from the youth team and was on the bench at Wigan earlier this month.

30 EDDIE HUTCHINSON (Midfielder)
Signed from Sutton in the summer and finally made the bench after season-long injury problems.

Lloyd Owusu
Lloyd Owusu's goals are so important
9 LLOYD OWUSU(Striker)
Brentford's leading scorer for the past two seasons after joining from non-legue Slough. Powerful striker with a good eye for goal. A key member of the Griffin Park team.

29 MARK McCAMMON (Striker)
In and out of the side since joining from Charlton in the summer but has scored a good ratio of goals to appearances and proved a handful for defenders.

Scott Partridge
Partridge has so far impressed Ray Lewington
Tricky player who holds the ball up well and has a good partnership with Owusu. Restored to the side when Ray Lewington took over as caretaker-manager after previously falling out of favour.

Former junior who has appeared largely as a substitute this season. Has come on and turned several games.

20 KEVIN O'CONNOR (Striker)
Another homegrown product who has not featured regularly in the side. However has shown plenty of promise in his limited appearances.

Recently earned his chance in the team due to the injury of others. Enthusiastic player who is an international with St Kitts and Nevis.
