First-team trio feature as Brentford B are beaten by Crystal Palace youngsters

Yoann Barbet gave away a penalty for the only goal of the game as Brentford B lost 1-0 to Crystal Palace Under-23s on Tuesday.

Fellow first-teamers Josh Clarke and Tom Field also featured for the Bees, while Palace’s side included ex-Brentford youngster Nikola Tavares.

Reece Cole went close with a free-kick in the first half but Palace keeper Kleton Perntreou was just about equal to it.

Perntreou denied Cole again in the second half, this time from open play, but Palace were given their match-winner when Barbet was penalised for handball, and Nya Kirby tucked away the spot-kick.

Barbet almost made amends from a free-kick but for another smart stop by Perntreou.
