Fisher out of London Senior Cup after defeat to Brentford B

Fisher could be proud of their performance despite a 2-0 defeat to a strong Brentford B side in the first round of the London Senior Cup at St Paul’s on Tuesday night.

Dom Jefferies put his side in front in the first half before Tristan Crama added the second after the break.

As expected, the Bees controlled the majority of the game and could have gone ahead in the second minute when Joe Adams almost played through Wraynel Hercules.

Fisher’s Isaac Thompson provided the hosts’ first opportunity when he got in behind the defence to cross but goalkeeper Nathan Shepperd gathered.

Brentford went ahead in the 22nd minute when Val Adedokun raced down the left wing and sent in a cross which deflected to Jefferies who found the bottom-right corner from the edge of the box.

Fisher forced Shepperd to rush off his line and he collided with striker Christian Udo but managed to claim the ball.

Brentford almost made it 2-0 from a corner but Crama headed against the post before a follow-up effort from a Bees trialist was held by Fish goalkeeper Dan Carpanini.

Courtney Swaby tried to restore parity on 65 minutes when the ball fell to him after a goalmouth scramble but he shot over.

Crama got his goal, after another set-piece, when he finished via a deflection.

Fisher lacked end product late on and it was Brentford who almost scored a third but Carpanini denied Hercules.
