Match Preview: Brentford B vs Huddersfield Town

Bees in West Yorkshire for Terriers fixture

28 November 2017

Kevin O’Connor’s Brentford B are playing Huddersfield Town this morning in a friendly at the Premier League side’s training ground.

The B Team are hoping to improve on the two defeats suffered in the last week to Swansea City and AFC Bournemouth.

In South Wales, The Bees were outclassed by a clinical Swansea side, losing 6-2 in a game that was 2-1 at half time. Despite strikes from a Brentford Trialist and Marcus Forss, the hosts proved too powerful for Brentford’s second squad.

Back at Jersey Road on Saturday, The Cherries completed a 3-0 win over their hosts by scoring two in the first half and another in the second.

Fullback David Titov reflected after the game; “After the performance in Swansea, I thought we were ready to step up. Training looked good, everyone was up for it, but we came out and just couldn't seem to get a goal.

”I thought they were more clinical. They created a few more chances but they also managed to take a few of them.” David’s full interview can be found here.

The last time these sides met at a similar age group was in an Under-21 Development League game in April 2016. That day, under the guidance of Flemming Pedersen, The Bees lost 4-0 in the pouring rain of Canalside.

Fraser Horsfall, Jake Charles, Rekeil Pyke and substitute Jack Boyle scored past Ellery Balcombe that day. The rest of the team comprised; Nathan Fox, Tom Field, Zain Westbrooke, Chris Mepham, Jan Holldack, Herson Alves, Reece Cole, Bradley Clayton, Jermaine Udumaga and Josh Bohui.

Only one of those starting players will return to the same venue for this friendly rematch; Clayton is in the squad that have travelled North for the fixture.

Coming on as a sub that day, Jarvis Edobor is one of the B Team’s current first choice centre-backs and has also travelled with the team. On Saturday, against Bournemouth, Jarvis made his 50th appearance for Brentford B.

Reece Cole and Herson Rodrigues Alves, who also played that day, miss out on this season’s trip through injury.

Match Report: Huddersfield Town 2 Brentford B 0

Bees lose out to Terriers on Tuesday morning

28 November 2017

Brentford B lost 2-0 to Huddersfield Town on Tuesday morning in West Yorkshire. Dominic Tear scored both of the goals to condemn The Bees to their third straight defeat.

As the game began, it seemed quite open and neither side could manage a clear cut opening in the final third.

Then the hosts took the lead after quarter of an hour. A low ball from the left fizzed across the face of goal, only to be poked home by Tear in the middle.

It could have been two very shortly after, as a defensive mix up allowed Huddersfield to break through two-on-one. Goalkeeper Jared Thompson saved the low shot from Abdelhamid Sabiri, pushing the ball away from danger.

Brentford had a great chance after 21 minutes, the ball coming in from the left wing for Joe Hardy in the box. The striker took the ball down but couldn't get his feet sorted out in time and his shot was weaker than he'd have liked. It was blocked by one of The Terriers' centre-backs.

With 38 minutes gone, the home side doubled their advantage. Joe Lolley had cut in from the left to shoot towards the top corner, but Thompson got across to save it. As the ball bounced back out however, there was Tear ready to pounce and he slotted the ball into the net.

By half time, Town looked like they had control of the tie. At the break, they made several changes to freshen things up. Kevin O'Connor's side were sent out unchanged.

The second half saw a big improvement from The Bees and they created a lot more in the next 45 minutes. 

Huddersfield had their chances though, including a low shot from Romoney Crichlow-Noble that saw Thompson scrambling across to catch.

Hardy got a shot away after 54 minutes, it was curling and fierce but was stopped by Town keeper Joel Coleman. At only 22, Coleman has plenty of experience to his name already, he played for The Terriers' First Team against Manchester City in last year's FA Cup Quarter-Final and in the 2017 Play-Off Semi-Final draw with Sheffield Wednesday.

With nearly an hour gone, Brentford's best chance came and went. Theo Archibald flicked the ball through to David Titov, and then the fullback crossed low into the box. Hardy was inches away from turning the ball in from a few yards out.

Brentford created chances as the game went on but couldn't force a way back into the game. Jan Novak and Marcus Forss were introduced as time went on but had no effect. The team couldn't play the final ball well enough to have a clear cut chance in the dying minutes.

Huddersfield held out and as the final whistle blew, looked a little relieved to have got a clean sheet over their West London counterparts.


Brentford B: J. Thompson; Titov, Edobor, Sorensen, Trialist; Kirk, Clayton, Assibey-Mensah; Archibald, Hardy (sub Forss 62 mins), Shaibu (sub Novak 73 mins)

Huddersfield Town: Coleman; Marriott, O. Thompson, Edmonds-Green, Crichlow-Noble (sub Gibson 82 mins); Booty, O'Brien; Tear (sub Scott 75 mins), Palmer (sub Kane 45 mins), Lolley (sub Dyson 45 mins); Sabiri (sub Danaher 45 mins)

Goals: Tear (15, 38)
