Bees faithful out in force for crunch away games

High demand has seen Brentford ask for more tickets for the upcoming away game at Franchise FC (AKA MK Dons) as sales close in on the 3,000 figure.

With the Bees requiring a further 2 wins to seal automatic promotion, sales for the following away game at Colchester United are likely to be stronger still.

The club have released a statement advising fans that roadworks will affect the journey to the Franchise game.

Train fares to both games are reasonable. Check the national rail website but a groupsave four for the Franchies game come in under £9 each a head return and for the Colchester game comes in at under £14 each on a groupsave 4. Flexible train pay on the day.

More than just promotion at stake for Wolves

With the news that Wolves will receive a £5m promotion bonus, the eventual second promoted team in the same boat, the East London and West Essex Guardian have reported that their clash with Leyton Orient at Brisbane Road is a sell out.

Bees fans will be hoping that Wolves’ 2,600-strong away support (similar to that of Brentford’s back in March) will see them take points off Orient, with the Bees facing Preston later that day.

Warburton sticks to his guns

Speaking in the London evening standard, Mark Warburton has reiterated that talk of promotion within the Brentford ranks will not be banned as his side enters the home straight of the promotion race.

Most fans are still scarred from the events of the last day of last season, as well as Wembley, but Warburton insisted that “It does not worry the lads. They learned from last year”.

With the gap between Brentford and Orient still at 7 points, the Manager clearly believes the best way to see it through is to be mature and level headed about their goals and who are we to disagree?
