They were supposed to be playing on the Sat I think but that's been cancelled and replaced by this one. Makes me think that perhaps we may well see a fair few B teamers involved in the FA cup squad v Boro..

Quite pleased this is on on Monday now given the Bristol postponement!

Great to see Roerslev back. Couple of interesting omissions. Kane 'O'Connor, Hammar and Balcombe. Possibly with first team for Sat?

Good to see Nathan Sheppard on the bench after his frightening injury.

seriously lacking in midfielders at the moment! Stevens, Valgeirsson and Gilbert playing there today. Stevens looks like he's the DM..

1-0! nice goal. Set up by Brook, Pressley turns on edge of box and fires into the corner..

Gilbert looks a player, lovely range of passing. Mads looking decent at RB as well.

It's good to see our lads making them look decidedly non-league, as the last time they made us look like a team of first year scholars.

him, valgeirsson, brook and haygarth look a real threat. Pressley holding the ball up well too. Stevens struggling a little in DM role, suspect he'll move back out to RB second half..

Haygarth looks like a real prospect.

The audio on the right hand channel, bloody hell, sounds like a Geiger counter gone off scale.

Carre as well, who I believe was stretchered off and thanks to the policy of not reporting on injuries these days, it could've been a season-ender for all we knew.

Yeah the movement around and off of Pressley has been impressive so far. As you said, Stevens struggling a little as DM but I assume it's a new role for him and only there to as Mads is at RB, expect he'll drop back there when Mads is removed later. Good crop of players currently

A good half. Spraying the ball around and looking comfortable. 👍

3-0 HT. very comfortable. Some really good football first 30. Went off the boil a bit after that. We've got some real quality in this side now and we're still missing the likes of Maghoma, Bidstrup and Mogensen..

Keeper looks a bit shaky, Roeslev looks very good.
Yeh, that's Jared Thompson, he's basically, what, 7th choice keeper at the club? Came in on short term contract when Shepherd was out injured as cover. Suspect it won't be renewed now everyone's back..

A good first half watch on a dismal do nothing Monday, 3 nicely worked goals as well, Impressed with some of our lads out there, you can see why they slot easily into the 1st team due to the same style of play and work rate, all this makes for a good future, we certainly seem to do everything the right way, beer and a sarnie and back to the 2nd half (y)

If anything they currently play the brentford system better than the first team! Our passing and movement through midfield is exceptional at times. Think they ran out of steam a bit after 30mins but a joy to watch.. Much as Pressley has done well, I can't wait to see Mogensen back with this lot around him.
