Match Preview: Ebbsfleet United v Brentford B

Young Bees back at Bisham Abbey today

13 March 2021

Brentford B take on Ebbsfleet United this afternoon in a 1pm kick-off at Bisham Abbey in a behind closed doors fixture.

Fresh from their 3-1 win over a Forest Green Rovers XI on Wednesday, the side will be looking to pick up another victory when they take on United this afternoon.

Aaron Pressley, Gustav Mogensen and Lachlan Brook all found the net in Wiltshire earlier this week and they'll be aiming to get on the scoresheet once again as they come up against the National League South side, who recently had their campaign declared null and void following ongoing issues regarding the impact of Covid-19 on football.

Mogensen, who netted his 25th Brentford B goal last time out, will be aiming to get more minutes having returned to full fitness and Brook will hope to build on grabbing his first goal for the young Bees against Rovers.

As for the defence, Aubrel Koutsimouka could continue in the middle of the back line, and it remains to be seen if the likes of Kane O'Connor or Tristan Crama can recover from knocks in time for the game. Ryan Trevitt, who impressed on his injury return with two assists last time out, will be aiming for more minutes to continue to build his match fitness.

Ebbsfleet sat in eighth position in the league table prior to the halt of fixtures having picked up 28 points from 18 games. Their last league match came in mid-February as they were on the wrong end of a 4-3 score line against Welling United, but before that they picked up a 2-1 victory over Concord Rangers.

United are managed by Dennis Kutrieb, who took on the role in the summer of last year having had success in the fifth tier of German football before arriving at the Kent Club.

We will provide live updates of Saturday afternoon’s match across social media, however we’re unable to provide a live stream of the fixture from Bisham Abbey.

Match Report and Match Highlights: Brentford B 5 Ebbsfleet United 1

Pontus Jansson returns as Bees defeat National League South side

15 March 2021

Pontus Jansson played 70 minutes for a Brentford XI that beat Ebbsfleet United 5-1 in a friendly at Bisham Abbey this afternoon.

The Brentford skipper had been out of action since mid-January following ankle surgery but returned to captain today's team to victory. Also in the lineup, First Team regulars Emiliano Marcondes and Charlie Goode, who have had their own injury problems in recent weeks.

Marcus Forss scored a hat-trick, including a goal from the penalty spot, as Lachlan Brook and Valgeir Valgeirsson added their own goals in the second half.

Assitant First Team Coaches Brian Riemer and Kevin O'Connor led the side at a rainswept Bisham Abbey, in conjunction with B Team staff, the game featuring a mix of senior and junior players.

It took just over half an hour for the first goal to go in, Forss netting his first on an assist from Brook. The Australian was released down the right wing before he cut the ball back to Forss, who applied the finish via the crossbar.

A few minutes later, the B squad had a chance to double the lead from the penalty spot. Jan Zamburek was pushed as he controlled a ball into the box, which left the referee no choice but to award the kick. Forss stepped up and drilled his second goal of the afternoon into the bottom left corner.

After the break, Ebbsfleet didn't take long to provide a response. Just a few minutes after the restart, Alfie Egan took aim and fired in from the edge of the box. Goalkeeper Nathan Shepperd was given no chance as the shot flew into the top corner.

Soon after, Brook was on the scoresheet to get that two-goal cushion back. The ball was won back by Gustav Mogensen's pressure on the left, before it fell to Marcondes. The Dane showed good footwork to maneuver a pass towards the unmarked Brook at the far post, who swept home his second goal in as many games.

Brook then joined Marcondes and Jansson in leaving the field after 70 minutes of action.

Forss then netted his hat-trick. Mogensen worked the ball into space on the left, before crossing into the box for Forss to volley beneath goalkeeper Jordan Holmes.

A few minutes before the end, The Bees made it five. Substitute Valgeirsson collected the ball on the edge of the box before setting himself to drill the ball beyond two defenders and the keeper.

The full-time whistle confirmed a 5-1 win for The Bees, a day after the First Team collected three points with a 1-0 win at Blackburn Rovers. Look out for more information online about upcoming B Team games.
