Brentford have been given permission by Fulham to extend the loan spell of midfielder Darren Pratley through to the end of the season.

Pratley is currently back at Craven Cottage receiving treatment on an injury he suffered in the FA Cup second round replay win over Oldham.

He hopes to be back at Griffin Park later in the month.

Manager Martin Allen told his club website: “This is a significant move for the football club.”
