Having rescued the points against Sunderland with two second half goals, Brentford were looking to the weekend – and a trip to Preston North End. This is one of the Beesotted crew’s favourite awaydays – with much off the pitch activity lined up to ensure that the football doesn’t spoil the day too much if the result goes the wrong way.
The Beesotted crew linked up back at the Cross Keys Pub in Stamford Brook this week to reflect on whether it was two points gained or two points lost last weekend. We discuss the Sunderland match and the Sunderland team . Positives around Brentford with the open training day plus we discuss Brentford B Team’s fabulous tour – beating both Inter & AC Milan this week.
We also speak to Preston Fan Ben ‘Rick’ Astley (@Astley_Ben) and discuss the PNE match and associated jollities.
