Kevin O'Connor saw his squad lose narrowly to West Brom's Under-23s on Tuesday 24 July, playing a team that included Gareth Barry, Oliver Burke and Sam Johnstone. Burke netted the winner in the second half after a ball through from Nigel Reo-Coker, sealing a 1-0 win for The Baggies.

The previous three games also ended in defeat for the second squad. Maidenhead United beat Brentford B 4-2 at Jersey Road, then Watford U23 managed a 4-1 win in Hertfordshire a week later. Maidstone United was a close encounter at Gallagher Stadium, where Brentford were ahead by two before the home side mounted a late comeback and snatched it 3-2 in the final minute.
