Brentford B return to action on Saturday morning when they travel to National League side Aldershot at The EBB Stadium in an 11am kick-off in a behind closed doors friendly.
This will be the second consecutive game against a National League outfit for Neil MacFarlane’s young side as they look to test themselves against a strong opponent. The young Bees will be hoping that the 90 minutes gained against Bromley in the 4-1 defeat will put them in a more positive position to tackle another tough opponent.
The young Bees will be without two members of the squad in Joe Adams and Paris Maghoma who are both away on international duty with Wales and England respectively. There is potential, however, for new Brentford B recruits Lachlan Brook and Valgeir Valgeirsson to get their first minutes for the Club after they joined on Monday.
Aldershot do not have a National League fixture this Saturday due to Macclesfield Town’s expulsion from the division. The fixture gives the opportunity for Danny Searle’s men to continue their schedule and they’ll be looking to get back to winning ways following their defeat in midweek to Sutton United.
Aldershot will be providing a free stream of the match, available from 10:30am, whilst we will be providing full social media coverage and you can hear from Neil MacFarlane and the playing squad following the game.
