Match Preview: Brentford B vs Reading U23

Bees face Royals at Jersey Road in midday kick-off

21 January 2018

John Egan and Henrik Dalsgaard are set to start for Brentford B as they take on Reading U23s at Jersey Road at noon.

The B Team come into this fixture on the back of two draws, a 2-2 with Manchester City before the New Year and a 3-3 against Exeter City last week. Herson Rodrigues Alves snatched a late equaliser in that one, after David Titov and Zain Westbrooke had scored one either side of half-time.

Josh Clarke, Emiliano Marcondes and Alan Judge are also set to start as Kevin O'Connor takes charge of one of the strongest squads he has had available to him.

Alves will miss today's game after picking up a knock last week, as will goalkeeper Ellery Balcombe. O'Connor will be able to re-call Lukas Talbro to the squad after the Danish defender missed the last month with injury.

The game is open to supporters at Brentford's Jersey Road training ground in Osterley. Limited parking is available at the training ground and on the surrounding roads.
