Brentford B Team News

Kevin O'Connor can select 16 players for tonight's game, and make three changes throughout the match. The previous cup match for The Bees was a 4-0 win over CB Hounslow in the Middlesex FA Challenge Cup, Nikolaj Kirk leading the team to the next round. 

Henrik Johansson missed out on that tie through injury but could make his return to competitive football this evening. Joe Hardy netted a brace in the previous competitive fixture, with Luka Racic and David Titov scoring as well. 

Jarvis Edobor leads the way in appearances for Brentford B; a grand total of 81 overall in his time here. Three players reached landmarks in their last matches; Reece Cole has 60 games, Ali Coote is on 50 and Joe Hardy has also hit the half a century mark. David Titov has 49 overall, and could make that milestone tonight if he's involved in any way.

Hardy is also now the all-time leading scorer for Brentford B, with 23 to Marcus Forss' 22. Reece Cole is closest on 20, with Justin Shaibu and Ali Coote still in the teens.
