Brentford B are swiftly back in action on Saturday morning when they come up against Huddersfield Town B in an 11am kick-off at Jersey Road.
The match, which is strictly behind closed doors, will see the young Bees aim for their fifth consecutive win to round off 2020 in style as this is their last match of the calendar year before a short Christmas break.
Wins over Watford, Arsenal and Charlton Athletic youth sides preceded Thursday afternoon’s impressive 3-1 win over West London neighbours Queens Park Rangers as Alex Gilbert and Aaron Pressley helped themselves to the goals in the 3-1 win.
Speaking after that match, Brentford B Coach Sam Saunders says it will be a quick turnaround but wants the side to keep up their hard work.
He explained: “The players will see the physios and the rest of the backroom staff and we’ll train light on Friday before assessing who is and isn’t available. It’s a quick turnaround but players want to play games, which is exactly what you want as a player, you don’t want to spend all your time on the training pitches."
Huddersfield launched their B team setup in the summer of 2020 in order to remodel their pathway of producing young players for Town’s First Team.
Huddersfield B come into the game off the back of a 3-2 defeat to a Middlesbrough youth side last time out back in early December. Other recent fixtures prior to the match with Middlesbrough saw the side pick-up wins over Sheffield Wednesday, Newcastle United and Grimsby Town.
