Scott solves Bees keeper crisis

Brentford boss Andy Scott has solved the club's goalkeeping crisis by signing Reading's Mikkel Anderson on a seven-day short-term emergency loan.

The Bees will be without fellow Royal loanee Ben Hamer for Saturday's clash with Bradford City after his sending off at AFC Barrow sees him serve a one-match suspension.

Reserve team keeper Seb Brown is currently injured leaving youth team 18-year-old Lloyd Anderson, who deputised in Cumbria after Hamer had been given his marching orders, as Scott's only other option.

New boy Mikkel is likely to be between the sticks at the weekend with the Bees boss reluctant to hand his namesake a first league start after a baptism of fire during Brentford's FA Cup exit.

The 19-year-old is yet to make his Championship debut for Reading since signing for Steve Coppell's men in January 2007, but he has recent experience from loan spells with Torquay United and Rushden & Diamonds.
