Match Preview: Eastleigh v Brentford B

The details ahead of tonight's trip to Hampshire

20 August 2021

Brentford B return to action this evening as they take on National League side Eastleigh at the Snows Stadium in Hampshire.

The young Bees will once again take on a National League side as they play their sixth match since returning for pre-season. The match, which will kick-off at 7pm, is open to supporters at AFC Totton with ticket details below.

Neil MacFarlane’s thoughts

The Brentford B Head Coach is once again expecting another tough clash with The Spitfires having had two matches against them last season. With the side having had a positive pre-season campaign, Neil says they're excited ahead of another fixture.

Last time they met

Hayes & Yeading played host to the sides' last meeting towards the end of last season. They played out a goalless draw as each team cancelled each other out with some strong defensive performances. Prior to that, they met earlier last season as Eastleigh ran out 3-0 winners at the Silverlake Stadium.

Get to know Eastleigh

The Spitfires get their season under way on Saturday 28 August when they welcome Wrexham to the Silverlake Stadium in a 3pm kick-off. The side, who are managed by Ben Strevens, will be aiming towards the top end of the division and to better their ninth place finish last season. The side have lost just one of their six games in pre-season so far in a campaign which began with a 3-2 defeat at Met Police. Following that they beat the likes of AFC Totton and Salisbury City before also beating Winchester City 3-1 on 9 August.

Match Report and Match Highlights: Eastleigh 0 Brentford B 1

Joe Adams grabs winner in Hampshire

23 August 2021

Brentford B battled to a 1-0 win against Eastleigh on Friday night at the Snows Stadium.

A second half Joe Adams strike won the match for the young Bees in a game where they showed promise throughout and claimed a deserved victory on the balance of play.

It was a B Team starting XI which also included three First Team players in Luka Racic, Myles Peart-Harris and Dom Thompson, whilst Jan Žambůrek was named on the bench as he stepped up his return from injury.

It was a match where the young Bees started brightly in possession with the likes of Paris Maghoma and Peart-Harris looking to dictate in the middle of the pitch.

The ball found the net early on but for the offside flag which ruled out a Nathan Young-Coombes effort which followed some fantastic and powerful play from Daniel Oyegoke as he burst forward from the right.

Oyegoke actually had the ball in the net himself later but Brentford B were once again denied by the offside flag.

Young-Coombes was also in action at the other end in the first period as he headed away a Tyrone Barnett header that looked destined for the top corner as the youngster somehow managed to glance the ball away and over the bar.

Both sides had a number of free-kicks and they continued to challenge each other aerially going towards the break but a good moment did fall for The Spitfires when Michael Kelly got on the end of an Eastleigh breakaway but Ben Winterbottom saved well to his left.

Neil MacFarlane made changes at the break with Žambůrek replacing the impressive Maghoma and Matt Cox came on in goal for the side.

It was a half where The Bees continued to control much of the action and the winning goal came around 15 minutes from time where the Bees' press, which caused havoc for much of the night, paid off as the pressure saw a loose ball fall to Adams, who held off his man, before rounding the keeper and firing home with his left foot.

Credit to Brentford B who matched their opponents in the air and they defended confidently throughout the final minutes as they limited their opponents to very little in terms of clear chances as Matthew Cox saw a couple of efforts from distance go wide of his goal.

Eastleigh: McDonnell, Hare, Kelly, Miley, Boyce, Pritchard, Barnett, Low, House, Maghoma, Whelan

Subs: Broadbent, Smart, Smith, Hesketh, Blair, Hill, Bragg, Torniainen

Brentford B: Winterbottom, (Cox, 45) Oyegoke, Racic, Hockenhull (Russell, 70) Thompson, Maghoma (Žambůrek, 45) Peart-Harris Haygarth (Trevitt, 70) Brook (Jefferies, 82) Young-Coombes (Hercules, 82) Adams (Trialist, 82)
