Brentford B are in action this afternoon when they take on Ebbsfleet United at Hanwell Town’s Powerday Stadium.
The match, which kicks off at 1pm today and is a behind closed doors fixture, will see Neil MacFarlane’s side aim to make it eight matches unbeaten.
Last time out the young Bees travelled to take on a Cambridge United XI where they claimed a 2-1 win with Joe Adams grabbing both of the goals on the day.
Prior to the win in Cambridgeshire, they had also picked up a draw with Sheffield United Under-23s and a 3-2 victory over Arsenal Under-23s.
The young Bees have had the likes of Ben Hockenhull and Kane O’Connor back in training in recent days with both players stepping up their returns from injury. The match could come too soon for the defensive duo, whilst the likes of Tristan Crama, Aubrel Koutsimouka, Max Haygarth and Paris Maghoma are still on their way back to fitness.
The sides last met in mid-March when Brentford B ran out 5-1 winners at Bisham Abbey. There was a heavy First Team presence on the day as the likes of Pontus Jansson, Charlie Goode, Mads Roerslev, Emiliano Marcondes, Jan Žambůrek and Marcus Forss all featured. Forss grabbed a hat-trick whilst Lachlan Brook and Valgeir Valgeirsson also found the net.
The last time Brentford B turned out at The Powerday Stadium they were beaten 4-3 by a Stevenage XI in an entertaining encounter. Fin Stevens, Aaron Pressley and Alex Gilbert all found the net, and the side will be aiming for a better result this afternoon.
