Match Previews

Preview: QPR U23 vs Brentford B

R's host Neil MacFarlane's side this afternoon in West London

30 August 2019

Our first West London Derby of the season takes place this afternoon as Queens Park Rangers Under-23s take on Brentford B at Imperial Sports Ground.

Supporters are welcome to attend the game in Hayes, kick-off 1pm. The Bees will be giving game time to some First Team names this afternoon, team news to be confirmed at noon. 

Yesterday's AFC Bournemouth game ended in a 3-1 defeat for Neil MacFarlane's side, Jaden Brissett scoring a penalty in the first half. Most of the squad from that game will likely miss today's match, with the other members of the squad - and some of Thomas Frank's - stepping in.

Match Report: Queens Park Rangers U23 1-4 Brentford B

Bees sweep past Hoops in West London derby at Harlington

30 August 2019

Brentford B overcame Queens Park Rangers Under-23s at Harlington this afternoon, Dru Yearwood netting twice in a 4-1 win.

Ali Coote and a Trialist added the other goals in the second half, while Dominic Thompson also continued his run of form in the B Team with another 90-minute display. Fullback Tom Field also put in a solid performance coming in from the left to deputise at centre-back.

Match Action video will appear here in due course.

Brentford went ahead after 12 minutes, Yearwood unleashing a fierce shot from the edge of the box that was too hot for goalkeeper Dillon Barnes to handle.

In the second half, the home side were given the chance to level things from the penalty spot when a Trialist brought down Charley Kendall just inside the box. Lewis Walker's spot-kick was kept out by Ellery Balcombe, still on a high after his maiden call-up to the England Under-21 squad this week.

The same trialist then scored a second for The Bees on 57 minutes. A corner from Reece Cole was set back to Coote, who whipped the ball across the box. There was the Trialist to powerfully head it home in the middle.

The R's got one back after an hour, a long distance effort taking a wild deflection that took it past Balcombe - the keeper wrong-footed by the complete change of direction en route to goal.

From the restart, Neil MacFarlane's side extended the cushion back to two goals. Cole collected the kick-off, rounded a defender and then sent the ball in behind for Coote. The Scot took control of it with one touch and then buried the finish, in off the left post.

The game was wrapped up after 72 minutes, Yearwood adding his second. Rangers gifted the ball to their opponents on the edge of the box before Matej Majka produced a save from Barnes. Unfortunately for the home supporters, Yearwood was waiting to sweep home the rebound.
