TABLE -TOPPERS Brentford have made three new signings in time for their trip to Dagenham & Redbridge tonight, writes MIKE SIMMONDS.

Ipswich Town striker Billy Clarke, Cheltenham Town forward Damian Spencer and centre half Darren Powell have all moved to Griffin Park until the end of the season.

Powell, 33, was playing in the Premier League last season when he was at Derby County, but has found himself surplus to requirements and was recently on trial at Leeds United.

Clarke has been with Ipswich all his career, but was sent on loan to Darlington and Northampton this season, where he scored 11 goals in 25 league appearances.

It has been a difficult season for Spencer, who managed a hat-trick for the Robins against MK Dons but was also red carded, and those are the only goals he has scored this campaign.

The Bees have suffered season-ending injuries to Nathan Elder and Jordan Rhodes, so manager Alex Scott will be hoping his new-look side gel in front of the Sky cameras tonight.
