That’s it. I hope you enjoyed coverage of tonight’s game.
Four minutes added on
Game set and match as Romeo Akinola unleashes another fierce drive that Daniels can do nothing with and it’s 3-0.
This may be a friendly but the tackles are flying in from both sides.
The rain is starting to come down - there’s seven minutes left of this contest
Raphael Assibey-Mensah wriggles his way through the QPR defence and his shot deflected wide
QPR win a free kick on the edge of the box and Romeo Akinola lashes an unstoppable shot into the far corner - a fine finish. Nothing Luke Daniels could have done about that one.
Sergi is heading back to the dressing room and he is given a good hand
Good awareness from Luke Daniels as Zenon Styliandes’ shot looks like it is going to creep in, gathering the ball comfortably.
So close from Brentford again as Bradley Clayton’s shot deflects just wide of the goal.
Justin Shaibu snatches at a chance and his shot flies over the bar
Ask Kev: Ilias Chatzitheodoridis nearing the first team
O’Connor: The word trust is spot on. You want to trust the player. Ilias is proving that, even if it’s a game on the training ground, he needs to treat it the same as Loftus Road. He needs to be consistent. They need to prove today they can do it.
A danger moment for a player is this point as they could fall in with the wrong crowd?
O’Connor: It can be dangerous and where your staff have to look for the telltale signs. They need to have the right friends and family from the start. New people can come on the scene. It’s to the individual to realise we can’t do everything for them and do what’s good for them. It’s their career, not my career.
Ask Kev: What's the aim for Brentford B this season?
O’Connor: I think the biggest challenge for us is to have a player in the starting XI regularly. That’s what we’re looking for. When we get one we go again and get two, three and four. We need to keep going and keep growing, feeding the first team with players and get them ready. Don’t think Justin has been promoted and we’re sorted we’re not. We don’t know how far these players can go.
Brentford free kick. Sergi Canos looks to shoot but passes to Raphael Assibey-Mensah. His shot is easily saved by Dieng
Lukas Talbro (right back) has impressed tonight.
Reckless challenge from Kakay on Sergi and the Spaniard is down. Kakay booked
Sergi Canos is so unlucky as his shot strikes the crossbar
We’re back underway
Half Time: Brentford 0-1 QPR
That’s the half-time whistle
Osman Kakay is given a talking to for a clattering challenge on Bradley Clayton
So close from Brentford B. A delicious cross in from Talbro is met by Shaibu’s glancing header that goes just wide.
Ali Coote lashes a fierce shot that Seny Dieng has to react quickly to in the QPR goal. A good save
On the pitch, Giles Phillips goes close for QPR, hitting the supporting stanchion behind the goal
WIll players outgrow the B team?
There will come a time where B team games won’t test them to the level we need there for men’s football, especially league football. I agree with what Dean is saying (about Reece Cole outgrowing the B team). A loan is natural progression. It’s playing with men who need the win to help pay their mortgage. It’s not just a friendly game or an U23s game where there is nothing at stake. It’s whether they can deal with that pressure and a 28 year old screaming at them. It’s real life and it’s real football. Hopefully they come back to us and kick on again.
Oteh draws another save from Luke Daniels.
It’s easy to see what both teams are trying to do. Brentford are keen to play the ball out of the back and work the ball through with their passing football. QPR are slightly more direct and slightly more physical in their play, pressing Brentford at every opportunity. That pressing paid off with their opening goal and has put pressure on the Bees on other occasions.
Great play from Brentford to work their way through the QPR defence. Ali Coote gets a clear sight of goal but fires it into the side netting. He looks frustrated with himself and feels he should have got the ball on target
Aramide Oteh has a chance to make it 2-0. Luke Daniels saves the first and Oteh misses from the rebound. He’s hurt himself in the process.
A great run by Lukas Talbro, who was being fouled, creates a chance but QPR snuff it out.
Brentford B nearly get back into it but Sergi Canos blasts the ball into Brook Road Upper. He just snatched at it. The Spaniard is playing as if it’s the World Cup final, which is the only way he knows how to play
