Match Preview: Chelsea U23s v Brentford B

Young Bees in action at Chelsea today

17 March 2021

Brentford B take on Chelsea U23s this afternoon in a 12pm kick-off away from home.

The young Bees will be looking to make it three wins from three having picked up two consecutive victories over a Forest Green Rovers XI and Ebbsfleet United.

Brentford B have been in good scoring form of late having netted eight times in their previous two matches, and they’ll be aiming to continue that run in front of goal when they take on the youth side at Chelsea.

Discussing the match against The Blues, winger Lachlan Brook said: "It's always good to play against a strong under-23 team because it allows you to compare yourself and see how you're doing against players that are in a similar position to you, in terms of trying to break into First Teams."

The side last came up against The Blues back in November last year where they were, perhaps, unfortunate not to take anything from the game as Chelsea claimed a 2-1 win. It was The Bees who went ahead through Alex Gilbert early on and the side made a host of chances but were unable to make their opportunities count as the clinical opponents found the net through Charlie Brown and Thierno Ballo.
