Match Preview: ETO Gyor v Brentford B

10 July 2017

Brentford B take on ETO Gyor tomorrow evening, kick-off 6pm local time, on day four of their trip to Central Europe.

Kevin O'Connor's side will play the second-tier Hungarians at the Globall Sport Training Centre in Telki, a few miles from the capital city of Budapest.

Gyor have been champions of their nation on four occasions, and also reached the Semi-Finals of the 1965 European Cup. They lost 5-0 on aggregate to Benfica but that season was one of their most successful. The Club won the Hungarian Cup for the first time.

In recent years, they have spent time in the second and third tiers and their most recent return to second division football was last season. Champions of the Western conference, they were promoted after a 4-0 win over Northern Hungary side Diosgyori. Their best period came in the 1980s when their most successful manager Jozsef Verebes took the team to back-to-back league titles.

O'Connor will have a full squad to choose from, with the exception of Henrik Johansson - he is still recovering from an injury sustained towards the end of last season.

With another friendly to come on Friday, it is very likely that changes will be made throughout the game as fitness levels decrease at this early stage. You can follow the game live on Brentford FC's twitter account @brentfordfc and a full match report will be available on brentfordfc.com after the game.
