Brentford B in cup action against AFC Wimbledon on Tuesday

Young Bees look to cup action this week

23 February 2020

Brentford B return to action on Tuesday afternoon as they take on AFC Wimbledon in the quarter-final of the London Senior Cup at Kingsmeadow in a 2pm kick-off.

The young Bees, who had their cup action in the Middlesex Senior Challenge Cup with Wealdstone postponed by the weather earlier this week, will turn their attentions to an opportunity to compete for a trophy on another front, but they’ll have to overcome a tough AFC Wimbledon side.

Tickets are priced at £5 for all spectators to gain entry to the match.

The first round of this competition saw Brentford B take on Beckenham Town back in September last year as they picked up an impressive 6-0 win away from home.

A Christian Tue Jensen hat-trick, as well as goals from Jaden Brissett, Mads Roerslev and Gustav Mogensen did the damage on the night as the young Bees sealed themselves a place in the second round.

December would then see them make the trip to Harrow Borough where the side were once again at their best in front of goal as they earned themselves a 7-1 win. This time it was Mogensen who would collect the match ball after his three finishes, as Joe Adams helped himself to two goals, with Arthur Read and Brissett notching the other two.

That sets up the quarter-final tie with the League One side, who opened their cup campaign with a 6-5 win on penalties following a goalless draw with Metropolitan Police back in early October. In December they would travel to Cray Valley where they played out a seven-goal thriller, coming out on top with Finlay Macnab’s header proving the difference between the two sides.

This is not the first meeting between the two sides this season as Brentford B made the trip to Kingsmeadow back in November last year and picked up an impressive 3-1 win in a behind closed doors friendly.

The Dons, who fielded a strong XI against Neil MacFarlane’s team, actually went ahead through Joe Pigott, but two strikes from Ali Coote and a Jaden Brissett finish was enough to ensure The Bees claimed victory.

The winners of the tie will progress to the semi-finals to face Erith Town, who secured their place with a 2-1 win over Tooting and Mitcham United.
