Match Preview: MSK Zilina U23 v Brentford B

13 July 2017

Brentford B play MSK Zilina U23 on Friday afternoon, kick-off 1pm local time, on day seven of their trip to Hungary.

The Bees take on the Slovak squad at the Globall Sport Training Centre in Telki, the same venue as their 4-0 win over ETO Gyor on Tuesday.

The 'Sosoni' play in the Slovak League, created in 1993, and won their seventh title last season. They are the second most successful team in the country. Their Under-23 setup play their football in Slovakia 2. Liga's West division.

Originally part of the Czechoslovak league, their greatest success came in 1961 when the team got to the Quarter-Finals of the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup. Known then as Dynamo Zilina, the team pushed Italian giants Fiorentina all the way across the two-legged encounter, winning the first 3-2 but losing the second by two without reply.

Kevin O'Connor spread the minutes throughout his team during Tuesday's opening fixture and will most likely do the same again on Friday afternoon. No new injury concerns have come forward from the last game, Henrik Johansson remains benched while he recovers from a summer surgery.
