Match Preview: Maidenhead United v Brentford B

Young Bees in action tomorrow morning

10 January 2022

Brentford B play their first match of 2022 when they travel to take on Maidenhead United on Tuesday in an 11:30am kick-off.

The match, which will be played behind closed doors at York Road, will see the young Bees play their first fixture since 14 December when they beat an Oxford United XI 3-2 away from home.

The side have been back in training at Jersey Road in recent weeks and will be looking to continue where they left off last year with the side currently unbeaten in their last five matches.

About Maidenhead United

United currently sit 20th in the National League and were last in action on Saturday when they drew 1-1 away from home against Aldershot Town. Maidenhead took the lead on 45 minutes through Josh Kelly but Toby Edser levelled things not long after the hour mark. Their result prior to that was a 1-0 win over Bromley on home soil on 28 December.

In charge of Maidenhead is Alan Devonshire whose playing career saw him turn out for the likes West Ham, with whom he spent 14 years, before finishing his career with Watford. As a manager he arrived at Maidenhead in 2015 and has also been in charge of Braintree Town and Hampton & Richmond.

Last Time We Met

The young Bees played against Maidenhead twice last season in two entertaining fixtures. The last meeting saw the B Team impress with a 3-0 victory at York Road with Aaron Pressley netting twice whilst Max Haygarth also got on the scoresheet as the side netted all three goals within the first 20 minutes.

Team News

With Nathan Shepperd having departed recently on a permanent deal, Neil MacFarlane could call upon any of Matt Cox, Ben Winterbottom or Roco Rees in goal. Elsewhere with Alex Gilbert and Jaakko Oksanen back in the fold following their loans, both players could gain minutes for the young Bees. Nathan Young-Coombes will be looking to add to his 19 goals so far this season.

Young Bees claim win at York Road

14 January 2022

Brentford B picked up a victory in their first match of 2022 as they beat National League side Maidenhead United 5-1 at York Road.

The goals came courtesy of a Nathan Young-Coombes hat-trick whilst Jude Russell also notched two on the day.

Neil MacFarlane had a strong B Team squad to choose from with the likes of Alex Gilbert coming straight back into the side following the end of his loan with Swindon whilst Daniel Oyegoke played to the right of a back four which included Russell, Tristan Crama and Lewis Gordon. Myles Peart-Harris also earned minutes while Paris Maghoma, who has just recently signed a new contract, got 30 minutes as he stepped up his return from injury.

The opening stages were relatively even with the B Team’s first sight of goal coming on nine minutes as Gordon’s cross from the left found Young-Coombes before the ball found its way to Ryan Trevitt but his effort was well blocked for a corner.

Maidenhead then threatened down the right and a cross found the head of Dylan Asonganyi but his effort was claimed by Ben Winterbottom who was alert to rise well. On 18 minutes the B Team could have been ahead when they forced a smart save out of Dan Gyollai. Wonderful play from right to left saw Peart-Harris find Gordon and his cross was pinpoint for Young-Coombes but his header was saved fantastically as the United shot stopper dived to his right to push the ball behind.

Winterbottom came out on top against Asonganyi once again shortly before the 20-minute mark when the forward struck low from the edge of the box but the keeper got down low to push the ball away from danger.

The opener then came on 22 minutes when Young-Coombes grabbed his first. Wonderful footwork from Peart-Harris saw him turn and play in Max Haygarth who drove into the area before playing the ball across goal for the B Team striker to knock home from close range.

It got even better for The Bees just four minutes later when they were awarded a penalty after tenacious running from Trevitt paid off as he was fouled by Gyollai and the referee pointed to the spot. Young-Coombes then stepped up to fire his effort home to the right of the goal and make it 2-0.

His hat-trick then came on 31 minutes when a ball back to the youngster saw him hold his run before finishing low into the bottom left-hand corner as he claimed his 20th goal of the season across B Team and Brentford XI fixtures.

The Bees were running riot in a sensational period and it was almost four just five minutes later when Haygarth was played in down the right. He tricked onto his dangerous left foot but could only curl his effort just wide of goal.

On 39 minutes Maidenhead pulled a goal back when a ball from the right went behind the Brentford back line and Reece Smith slotted under Winterbottom to reduce the deficit.

Jude Russell got his first goal for the Club in stoppage time in the first half as he got on the end of a corner. He headed goalwards against the post and the ball came back to him before he tapped into the net at the second attempt.

The second half continued in similar form as The Bees started brightly. It was almost a fourth for Young-Coombes on 53 minutes when he got on the end of an Oyegoke cross but his first time effort edged just over the bar.

Gilbert’s set piece deliveries caused havoc as Tristan Crama headed over soon after and the fifth and final goal arrived shortly before the hour. A Gilbert corner was met by Russell and he headed home from the centre of the box to further Brentford’s advantage.

Going into the last 15 minutes, a much changed Bees side following a number of substitutes, almost got a sixth goal when Gilbert played a fantastic ball through to one of the Trialist strikers, and despite finding the net, the goal was ruled out for offside.
