Brentford B will take on Arsenal Under-23s on Sunday afternoon in a behind closed doors fixture at Bisham Abbey in a midday kick-off.
The young Bees are on a fantastic run of form of late having picked up four consecutive wins, with their last match an impressive 2-0 victory over a strong Charlton Athletic XI away from home.
Aaron Pressley and Wraynel Hercules got the goals at Sparrows Lane last time out in an eye-catching display and the side will go into the match with The Gunners with confidence from their recent performances.
Neil MacFarlane’s side will come up against an Arsenal Under-23 outfit who recently picked up a 1-1 draw away from home against Everton Under-23 in Premier League Two Division One. Folarin Balogun grabbed Arsenal’s goal in the 81st minute to level the score after Nathan Broadhead had put The Toffees in front earlier on.
Brentford B last came up against Arsenal Under-23 in December last year as the side picked up a 1-0 win away from home. On the day, the likes of Luke Daniels, Dom Thompson and Saman Ghoddos all featured for the young Bees, with Saman’s stunning strike from distance the difference between the two sides.
Unfortunately, the facilities at Bisham Abbey will not cater for a streaming service, therefore coverage will be across social media, as well as a match report and post-match interviews.
