Brentford B will host West Ham Under-23s at Griffin Park tonight, Tuesday 20 August 2019. A 7pm kick-off in TW8, entry is free for supporters, as West Ham play Brentford B for the very first time.

Neil MacFarlane will have a few First Team names in his side this evening as they continue their journeys to full fitness, find out exactly who they are when teams are announced at 6.30pm.

The Bees come into the game on the back of a trip to Denmark, which yielded one win and three draws across five days in West Jutland. Neil MacFarlane's side first drew 0-0 with Puerto Pro FC before defeating FC Midtjylland Reserves 3-2 in a dramatic game that saw Brentford reduced to 10 men after an hour.

The final day saw two 45-minute games both end goalless between The Bees and their two opponents from the previous days. 

The Hammers play their games in Division Two of the Premier League 2 system, having been relegated last season from the top tier. West Ham finished second bottom of the 12-team league, just a single point behind Leicester City.

This season has seen them off to a flying start, getting a 3-0 win over Fulham on the opening day and then a 2-1 win over Newcastle on Saturday. Their next two league games see them host Reading before travelling to play Manchester United.
