Preview | Brentford B (h) - Middlesex Senior Cup

27 February 2019

Middlesex Senior Challenge Cup Semi-Final – The Hive London – Thursday 28th February 2019– KO: 19:45

The Bees are back in Middlesex Senior Cup action tomorrow night as they host Brentford B at The Hive London with a place in the final at stake.

After facing the senior team on two occasions already this season in the FA Cup, the Bees now go up against a team of Brentford youngsters in the semi-final.

This Season’s Run:

Tomorrow’s opposition began their Middlesex Senior Cup run with a convincing 4-0 away win over CB Hounslow United in October 2018 at the second round stage. A trip to Wealdstone awaited them in round three and the Bees progressed again, beating the National League South side 2-0 thanks to goals from Joe Hardy and Theo Archibald.

As for Barnet, they clinched a second round 4-1 victory over Wembley FC before beating Hampton & Richmond 2-0 at the previous stage.

Head Coach: Lars Friis

Lars Friis was appointed head coach of Brentford’s development side after a spell at Danish Superliga side Aarhus Gymnastikforening.

He has spent the most part of his managerial career at FC Midtjylland where he helped set up the academy before working there for eight years. However, he left to join up with the Danish FA where he would go on to coach at youth team level from Under-16’s to Under-21’s.

In 2009, Friis returned to Midtjylland’s academy before he was promoted to the First Team in 2013, a role he held for two years. It was a successful spell at the club as he was part of the side that won the Danish title for the first time before qualifying for the last 32 of the Europa League. Friis left the club for Aarhus in 2015.

Last Time Out:

Brentford B will go into to tomorrow’s game off the back of a 1-0 victory over Huddersfield Town U19 just over a week ago with Nikolaj Kirk bagging the only goal of the game.

Whoever comes out on top tomorrow night will face Harrow Borough in the final.

Tickets for tomorrow’s game are priced at £4 for Adults, £2 for Concessions and £1 for Under 17’s.

28 February 2019

A Young Barnet side were knocked out of the Middlesex Senior Cup at the semi-final stage by Brentford B.

A commanding first-half display from the visitors matched with an impressive performance in the second resulted in a 5-0 defeat for Barnet.

The visitors took the lead after 12 minutes when Marcus Forss broke into the penalty area and was allowed to cut in onto his right foot and drill the ball into the bottom corner of Renell McKenzie-Lyle’s goal.

They doubled their advantage when Kolbeinn Finnsson was played in by a defence-splitting ball by Ali Coote and slotted the ball past McKenzie-Lyle in a 1 on 1 situation 11 minutes later.

Brentford B managed to get a third on the 30-minute mark when Marcus Forss scored his second of the evening with a header from close range.

Just before the break, a nasty aerial collision between Roy Syla and Jarvis Edobor forcing both players to come off with serious cuts.

The second half saw a better display by the Young Bees side but Brentford B reassured their dominance after a stunning long range shot from Jakko Oksanen beat McKenzie-Lyle after a brilliant challenge by Martin Box which denied Finnsson from getting his second.

First-half substitute Antonis Vasiliou came close with a free kick from 40 yards,k just going wide of the post.

9 minutes from time Brentford B managed to grab a 5th when Kolbeinn Finnsson was played through for his 2nd of the evening, sending the ball past McKenzie-Lyle with a neat chip.

A minute after Brentford B’s 5th, Antonis Vasiliou had another good chance but Patrik Gunnarsson went down low to deny Vasiliou from scoring.

The visitors came close to making it 6 when Kolbeinn Finnsson played through Theo Archibald but he put his shot across the face of goal and wide.
