Brentford B picked up an impressive 3-1 win over League One side AFC Wimbledon in a behind closed doors friendly at The Cherry Red Records Stadium.
The home side took the lead through Joe Pigott early on before Ali Coote volleyed home shortly after. Jaden Brissett then continued his excellent Brentford B scoring form when he finished well before Coote notched another in the second period.
Neil MacFarlane’s side featured first teamer Julian Jeanvier as he got minutes under his belt whilst suspended from league action and there were also starts for the likes of Ali Coote and Cole Dasilva, as well as Luka Racic as he stepped up his game time.
There was also a familiar face in the Wimbledon line up as Marcus Forss, currently on loan from The Bees, started the match.
It was Brentford who would have the first real chance of the match when Gustav Mogensen held the ball up well before finding Fredrik Hammar, whose low shot was just wide of goal.
Despite that, it was the League One side who would find the net when a ball to the far post was then played back into the path of Pigott who slotted home to make it 1-0.
It would be the turn of Forss to try his luck against his parent club when he received the ball centrally before driving forwards and seeing his low effort well stopped by Nathan Shepperd.
But it would be The Bees who would get the next goal of the game when Coote did well to play the ball out to Cole Dasilva before the full back played an excellent cross into the path of the forward who volleyed home first time.
Piggot would have another effort shortly after with a header which edged just wide before MacFarlane’s side took the lead. A ball through the middle was excellently timed into the path of Brissett who slotted home one-v-one against the opposition keeper as they took an advantage into the break.
A relatively even beginning to the second period saw chances few and far between until the hour mark saw Brentford extend their lead when Coote notched his second. A ball down the left found the winger who chipped home to make it 3-1.
Both sides made a number of changes after the hour mark but The Bees kept pressing and substitute David Titov crossed well to the back post following a counter-attack but it just evaded the industrious Dru Yearwood.
Joe Adams would then sting the hands of the Wimbledon keeper with an effort from the left but that would be it for the action as Brentford claimed a deserved win.
