Brentford B will be looking to bounce back to winning ways when they continue their busy 2018 this week. Kevin O’Connor’s side lost the second of two games in four days against Reading on Wednesday, suffering a 3-2 defeat. That came on the back of a 9-1 win secured by a Brentford B side featuring a few First Team players last Sunday. Brentford B will next be in action on Tuesday, 30 January, and will take on Bristol Rovers looking to regain that winning feeling.

Brentford B came from behind twice to draw 3-3 with an Exeter City XI in their first game of 2018 and ended 2017 with a 2-2 draw against Manchester City, conceding two late goals. Wins against Barnet and Wolverhampton Wanderers preceded those two draws. Brentford B have now won 16 and lost only eight of their 28 games so far this term.
