League One season preview: Brentford

Brentford key man: Sam Saunders Photo: PA

Manager: Uwe Rosler

Position last season: 9th

Nickname: The Bees

Ground: Griffin Park

Capacity: 12,763

Players in: Harlee Dean (Southampton, free), Adam Forshaw (Everton, free), Farid El Alagui (Falkirk, free), Tony Craig (Millwall, undisclosed), Stuart Dallas (Crusaders, free), Leon Redwood (Brighton, free)

Players out: Karleigh Osborne (Millwall, free), Marcus Bean (Colchester, free), Liam Bellamy (Ebbsfleet, free), Sam Wood (Wycombe, free), Craig Woodman (Exeter, free), Pim Balkestein (AFC Wimbledon, free)

Key man: Sam Saunders - the winger extended his contract last season and should continue his good form from last year under Uwe Rosler's attacking formation.

Chances: The Bees flirted with the play-offs last season and manager Rosler will be expecting a genuine promotion tilt this term. Craig will bring some much-needed experience to the defence while winger Dallas could prove a shrewd capture.
