McCormack out for Three Months

 

Alan McCormack will undergo surgery on Monday after suffering a bad ankle injury against Bolton. He will be out of action for three months.

A key member of the Brentford team, Alan’s presence will be missed this weekend when table toppers Derby come to Griffin Park.

We wish Alan a speedy recovery.

Elsewhere, Nico Yennaris’ knee injury is on the mend. Whilst it’s unlikely he’ll feature this Saturday, he could be back in first team contention within weeks.

Brentford v Derby Preview

 

Brentford host Derby tomorrow in the Championship. Many people’s tip for promotion, Derby are level on points at the top of the league, and a win tomorrow could see them extend that lead.

Brentford however are trying to break their bad spell of form, which has seen the Bees pick up only two point from their last three games, scoring just one goal in the process.

Steve McClaren has predicted an entertaining game with both sides playing what he described as ‘risky’ football.  He said “We did that on Tuesday and we scored five and conceded two goals.”

It will be a tough ask on Saturday to try and get a result out of the championship leaders, but by no means an unrealistic one. Only recently Wigan went to Derby and got a 2-1 win as was discussed on the .

Nottingham Forest free coach tickets

Time is running out to book free coach tickets for the away fixture against Nottingham Forest on Wednesday 5th November. Fans have until after the Derby match on Saturday afternoon to snap up their tickets. All fans buying a match ticket will be also entitled to a free coach ticket. The club had sold over 500 tickets as of the middle of the week and expect to bring between 750 and 1000 fans to Nottingham for the clash.

Brentford Beaten by Barcelona

 

Brentford U16s were narrowly beaten by Barcelona in Spain this week. Danny Parish fired the Bees into the lead at La Masia Training Complex before Porquemos and Edgar both beat keeper Cameron Greaves to give the Spanish side a 2-1 half-time lead.

Brentford had much the better of the 2nd half and were unlucky not to equalise with Adria in the home goal pulling off a fantastic save from George Harmes.

Youth team coach Danny Buck said “It just goes to show that what we are doing at Brentford is unique in England. We rotated in midfield, we were patient and we broke lines and Barcelona found it difficult to deal with us. At these age groups we can compete with the very best in Europe which can only bode well for players going into the first-team”.

QPR hire Chris Ramsay

QPR have announced that they have hired former Tottenham coach Chris Ramsay to join their coaching staff.

Ramsay’s addition comes as the hoops are trying desperately to save themselves from the drop, after a questionable start to the campaign. Ramsay was formerly Tim Sherwood’s assistant during his time with the club, which resulted in Sherwood’s sacking. Following on from a ten year spell at Spurs, Ramsay will be working with the academy at QPR.
