Match Preview: Brentford B vs Manchester City

Bees to play Citizens at Jersey Road

18 December 2017

Brentford B entertain Manchester City in the squad's final fixture of 2017 at Jersey Road tomorrow afternoon.

The Bees are chasing a third win on the bounce after beating Wolves 2-1 at home last Thursday. Herson Rodrigues Alves and Joe Hardy were on the score sheet as Kevin O'Connor's side also had Ellery Balcombe to thank for a saving a penalty in the 56th minute.

Alan Judge continued his return from injury by getting 71 minutes, adding to his 45 at Barnet recently, and could get even more on the pitch this week. Alves made a goalscoring return to action by getting the second half against Wolves, while Reece Cole also played 45 in that encounter.

Balcombe made his 20th appearance of the season last match, getting back into the team after missing the previous two games. David Titov made his 16th start on Thursday, a major improvement after having only made seven sub apps last term.

Bradley Clayton became the first B Team player to get over 2,000 minutes for Kevin O'Connor's side when he captained the side last week. Meanwhile, Joe Hardy scored his eighth goal of the year against Wolves, taking him level with Theo Archibald and both are two behind Marcus Forss on ten.
