Brentford Fan Exodus For Reading Away Clash

Brentford Fan Exodus For Reading Away Clash

Brentford fans have done themselves proud ahead of the trip to Reading this weekend – the Bees will walk out to take on the Royals with a packed away end of 3,000 supporters ready to roar the team on.

Three thousand is a tremendous effort, and although Reading is a relatively easy fixture to get to, it demonstrates the excitement that is starting to build after an impressive Christmas run of results, and how the win over Bolton last week now has Dean Smith’s side moving tantalizingly close to the play-off places.

Bees fans will certainly swell the Madejski crowd, but the game between the two sides will be far from a sell-out – with Jaap Stam’s side struggling to find the form that saw them reach the play-off final last season – although Brentford do have the honour of providing their rivals with their record EVER attendance, when more than 33,000 crammed into Elm Park for a Fifth Round FA Cup clash in 1927.

Ninety years later, the class of 2018 are travelling west confident that we can continue our march up the table – obviously we take nothing for granted – but a packed away end, a team full of exciting young players, and a manager keen to take revenge for the unjust defeat there last season, makes for a mouthwatering combination. Let’s make it a special day.

Come On You Bees!
