Sports Mole looks ahead to this weekend's FA Cup fourth-round replay between Chelsea and Brentford at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have a second chance to progress into the fifth round of the FA Cup when they take on Brentford in a fourth-round replay at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues managed to secure a replay courtesy of a late goal by Fernando Torres to leave the game all square at 2-2 in January, but proceedings will have to be wrapped up this weekend.

Blues interim manager Rafael Benitez could start defender John Terry, despite claiming that he suffered a recent setback on a knee injury, which he suffered against Liverpool in November.

Ashley Cole could replace Ryan Bertrand at full-back after overcoming a cold, which kept him out of yesterday's 1-0 victory over Sparta Prague in the first leg of the Europa League round-of-32 clash.

Meanwhile, Harry Forrester, Clayton Donaldson and Marcello Trotta are likely to start in attack for the visiting side.
