Match Preview: Brentford B vs Wolves U23

Bees play penultimate fixture of 2017 at Jersey Road tomorrow

13 December 2017

Brentford B vs Wolverhampton Wanderers U23. Jersey Road, 11:30am.

Kevin O'Connor's B Team host Wolverhampton Wanderers U23 at Jersey Road tomorrow at 11:30am. The Bees are looking to get their second win in succession after what will be their seventh home game of the year.

Last time out, Brentford B completed a 3-2 win over Barnet U23. Alan Judge made a scoring return to action and Marcus Forss got himself a brace at the North Londoners' Hive training ground. Forss, now on 10 goals in 17 appearances, appeared on the bench during the First Team's 0-0 draw with Hull City on Saturday.

Raphael Assibey-Mensah made his 50th B Team appearance against Barnet last Tuesday, while Ilias Chatzitheodoridis clocked up number 48. Forss notched his ninth and tenth goals of the season in the match with the other Bees.

The same fixture last season ended in a 4-1 win to Brentford on 5 January. Danny Parish got a double, while Nathan Fox and Herson Rodrigues Alves added to the scoreline.

Alves is still recovering from a knock that has kept him out of the last four matches. Henrik Johansson and Reece Cole are also still on the way back from their own injuries and will be missing from the squad.
