For the second season in a row, Brentford played a hard-fought battle against a strong Tottenham team losing 3-2 in a behind-closed-doors match played at the Tottenham training ground.
Spurs fielded a strong side against the Bees which is a testament to how they viewed the opposition.
Spurs went 1-0 up through a Gareth Bale goal but Bees fought back with goals from the new boys – a long range strike from Alan McCormack and a penalty from Will Grigg who’s initial shot was hand balled by Caulker. Brentford went into half-time 2.1 to the good.
Spurs threw on Jermaine Defoe at half time and looked much more potent up front – with Defoe scoring a brace.
Information on this game is pretty sketchy but we will fill in with more news as and when we get it.
Spurs 1st half team: Friedel, Naughton, Dawson, Caulker, Rose; Mason, Huddlestone, Bentaleb; Lennon Bale Obika
Spurs 2nd half team: Archer, Smith, Kaboul, Vertonghen, Stewart; Parker, Carroll, Sigurdsson; Townsend Defoe Ceballos
Thanks to our man in the Spuds camp @themilts for the match tip-off
If this match is anything to go by, Brentford should certainly give Celtic a run for their money on Saturday 20th. Tickets are still available by the way.
