Preview: Wealdstone vs Brentford B

Middlesex Cup Quarter-Final at Grosvenor Vale tonight

8 January 2019

Brentford B travel to The Vale this evening to take on Wealdstone in the Middlesex FA Senior Challenge Cup. Kick-off is 7.45pm in Ruislip.

The Opposition

The Club plays in the Vanarama National League South, the sixth tier of English football and the highest ranked opponent the B Team have faced this season. Back in 1984/85, The Stones acheived the first non-league double by winning the division and the FA Trophy in the same season.

This year, the team are going steady in mid-table between Slough Town and Chippenham in 12th place. On Saturday, Wealdstone left it late but managed to snatch a point from their game against Dartford at home. Eion McKeown scored a 92nd-minute leveller to cancel out Elliot Bradbrook's second-half opener. 

The Manager

Bobby Wilkinson is the Manager at Grosvenor Vale and has been in charge since August 2017. After a seven-year spell at Hungerford Town, Wilkinson was brought in to replace long-serving Stones boss Gordon Bartlett - who had been in at the helm for 22 years. 

He had worked wonders at Town, leading the team to promotion out of the lower tiers and into the National League South via a Play-Off victory over Leamington. At the start of the season, Wilkinson was given permission to speak to two clubs over a possible move away from Ruislip but he turned them down in favour of signing a new contract with The Stones. 

Ticket News

Tickets will be available on the day and are priced as follows:

  • Adults £8
  • Concessions £5 (over-65s & under-18s)

Matchday programmes will also be on sale for £1. 

Quarter-Final

The rest of the Quarter-Final draw, which will be played out across this week or next, looks as follows:

  • Hendon vs Hayes & Yeading
  • Barnet vs Hampton & Richmond
  • Staines Town vs Harrow Borough

Bees through to Semi-Final after victory over Stones

8 January 2019

Brentford B made it through to the Semi-Finals of the Middlesex FA Cup after a 2-0 win over Wealdstone at Grosvenor Vale. Joe Hardy scored early before Theo Archibald added one in the second half.

Lars Friis recalled Archibald and Reece Cole to the team after they returned from loan spells at Forest Green Rovers and Maidenhead United. He also included new signing Jayden Onen on the bench for his first taste of this cup competition. 

The Bees took the lead after only three minutes through Hardy. Kolbeinn Finnsson, fresh off a call-up to the Iceland National Team, collected the ball from Reece Cole and then knocked it forward. Hardy ran on to the ball and slotted it beyond goalkeeper Sonny Wheeler.

Ali Coote needed to be replaced after 11 minutes, pulling up after chasing a long ball forward. Henrik Johansson came on, picking up a booking soon after with a late challenge on opposition captain Femi Azeez.

The closest Brentford went to a second came after half an hour, Nikolaj Kirk racing through on goal only to hit the crossbar. Archibald tried to direct the follow-up at goal with his head but it bounced narrowly wide. 

Cole had a great chance to make it two with a long range shot that fizzed over the bar shortly afterwards. 

Wealdstone did create some openings in the first period, particularly causing a panic when a ball from Anton Rodgers was directed towards goal by Yado Mambo. Patrik Gunnarsson was grateful to claim the ball in the air and keep hold of it in slippery conditions. 

The second half started with The Stones on the front foot. Just five minutes in a corner was whipped across the face of goal but nobody could get a touch from either side.

With 66 minutes on the clock, David Titov nearly embarrassed Gunnarsson by nodding the ball back with the keeper out of positon. Thankfully the Icelandic stopper managed to to dive on the ball before sub Pawel Kowalkowski could react.

A few minutes later it was Cole Dasilva who drilled the ball low across the box. It evaded everyone and looked set for the far post where Finnsson was waiting, but was then cleared by Ramarni Medford-Smith at the last second.

With 20 minutes to go, Archibald broke clear in the middle of the park. He skipped past the goalkeeper and then tucked the ball into the corner of the net.

Three minutes later it was three, although it was quickly chalked off. Titov crossed to the near post, where Hardy knocked the ball home. The referee gave the goal, as did the linesman, but every man in an ecru shirt was protesting. Mr Morrison asked Hardy for the truth and the striker admitted to handballing the chance into the goal.

With five minutes to go, Eoin McKeown had a chance at the far post. Reece Mitchell crossed the ball deep but the striker could only divert the ball into the side-netting.

Brentford B: Gunnarsson; Titov, Racic, Sorensen, Dasilva; Kirk, Coote (sub Johansson 11 (sub Zamburek 72)), Cole; Finnsson (sub Onen 79), Hardy, Archibald
