Match Preview: Brentford B vs Swansea

Jersey Road set to host Swans rematch in snowy conditions

27 February 2018

This afternoon Brentford B will face Swansea City U23s at Jersey Road, kick-off at 2pm.

Kevin O'Connor's side host Swansea in a rematch of a game that saw them lose 6-2 in the reverse fixture earlier this season.

In November, the squad travelled to South Wales and came away with a heavy defeat on their record despite goals from Marcus Forss and a Bees trialist. The hosts had taken a 90-second lead but were soon pegged back. At the break, the score was a relatively even 2-1 to The Swans.

After half-time, some sloppy defending saw the Welsh team catch Brentford on their heels for two quick goals that made it an impossible task to recover from. Then it was five, before Forss netted after coming off the bench, and then it was six in the final minutes.

With so many players now eligible for First Team football, it is highly likely that some of Dean Smith's squad will compete in tomorrow's game.

Some of the B Team will miss out, including the Danish duo of Lukas Talbro and Mads Bech Sorensen. They are out on international duty for Denmark U19s, as is David Titov for Latvia's squad of the same age group.

Henrik Johansson could make his first appearance of the season after making a full return to training this month. Joe Hardy will definitely miss out after picking up an ankle injury in training this week.
