Match Preview: Brentford B vs Barnet

Battle of the Bees at Jersey Road on Monday

4 March 2018

Brentford B will face Barnet U23 at Jersey Road on Monday afternoon.

Brentford are looking to complete the first 90 minute match since the team returned from Ireland, where the squad faced Shamrock Rovers and Dundalk.

Last week saw Kevin O'Connor's side get 45 minutes into their game with Swansea City before the match was abandoned due to heavy snow. The team were 4-0 up going into half-time, then the weather made play impossible mere minutes after the restart.

Zain Westbrooke had opened the scoring, before Marcus Forss added one from the penalty spot. Jarvis Edobor got his second in as many games and shortly after, Ali Coote scored his first since the early games of the season.

Barnet and Brentford B faced off at The Hive earlier this season, with the boys in Red and White winning 3-2. Alan Judge made his long awaited return to action and scored a penalty in the first 10 minutes, then Marcus Forss netted a brace to put his team out of sight.

It was almost Barnet who had the story of the day, one goal away from completing a comeback in the last 10 minutes. Two goals had them back in the picture with three minutes to go but the other Bees couldn't find a leveller.
