Brentford head to Scotland with Manchester games to follow

City and United to come, along with Portugal tour

10 March 2018

Brentford B are heading to Scotland today to play two games before hosting Manchester United in the coming weeks.

Kevin O’Connor’s side beat a Barnet XI 5-4 last week, the first full game in nearly a month following weather disruption. Five different players were on the scoresheet, almost as many as those who netted against Swansea City on February 27 before the match was abandoned due to heavy snow.

The squad face a small-scale training game on Sunday 11 March before facing Rangers at their training ground in Edinburgh on Wednesday 14. The Gers came out worthy winners of the reverse fixure at Jersey Road, with Kenny Millar appearing in a side that won 5-2 back in October.

Since the start of 2018, O'Connor's lads have won four, lost two and drawn one of their New Year fixtures. They recorded their biggest victory of the season with a 9-1 win over a young Reading side, Alan Judge and Emiliano Marcondes among the scorers for The Bees that day. 

The 2017/18 fixture list has seen the squad face Benfica B, Chelsea, Everton and AC Milan and Hertha Berlin. Now, they have confirmed Manchester United U23s will travel to Griffin Park on Tuesday March 20, a week before Chelsea U23s make the trip to Jersey Road. There's also another tour on the horizon, the squad heading to Portugal in April for matches with FC Porto and SC Braga.

Before those games, Anderlecht are set to play The Bees at Griffin Park on Friday 13 April. Then Huddersfield Town are the post-Portugal visitors with a game on Friday 27 April. That's all before the final season ender, a double-header with Manchester City. First a trip North to play them on May 1, then a showcase game played at Griffin Park on Tuesday 8 May at 7pm.

All upcoming fixtures are subject to change and can be altered at very late notice. The Club will release final details on all matches closer to the dates. Most of the remaining home games will be open to supporters, including all Griffin Park fixtures.
