Brentford B defeated GC Zürich XI 2-0 on Friday afternoon in Switzerland. The goals came in either half for Canice Carroll and Joe Hardy, as the B squad rounded off their tour with a win.
Carroll scored after just three minutes at GC Campus, the home of GC Zürich. A corner by Jan Zamburek was fizzed through the box, it reached the far post where the defender swept it home from close range.
The home side came close to getting an equaliser when Aliu’s free-kick was met by Diani in the box. It dropped just wide of the far post.
The start to the second half was a bright one for The Bees, pressuring their opponents into mistakes during the opening stages.
Hardy took advantage of this pressure when he netted a few minutes into the second half. A ball from the left came in and the striker shifted his feet quickly to finish past the sub goalkeeper.
