Wolves will look to follow on from their win last weekend when they host Brentford at Molineux in the Premier League on Saturday.

After three consecutive 1-0 defeats for Bruno Lage’s Wolves side and pressure already mounting, they finally recorded their first victory of the season away to Watford ahead of hosting in-from Brentford on Saturday.

It took the Midlands side just under 74 minutes to score through an own goal from Francisco Sierralta, which was quickly followed by a debut goal from new signing Hwang Hee-chan who arrived from RB Salzburg in the summer to hand the Wolves manager his first three points of the season.

The victory will be one of relief for Bruno Lage whose side failed to find the net in three consecutive games – and with two of those fixtures including Manchester United and Tottenham – the upcoming fixture list may begin to provide some breathing space for the Portuguese man.

As for Brentford who enjoyed a dream start to life in the Premier League following their 2-0 victory against Arsenal, the Bees have continued steadily with two draws and one defeat since.

In their last outing, they were cruelly denied a point when Brighton’s Leandro Trossard scored a delightful curling effort to steal the victory in injury time.

With that being said, it was the first time Thomas Frank’s side have suffered defeat following their promotion to the top flight although questions remain as to where goals will come from having only scored one goal in their previous three fixtures.

The Bees have no new injury concerns going into the game with only the long-term absence of Joshua Dasilva and Mads Sorensen, who both continue to be on the sidelines for the foreseeable future.

It’s similar news for Wolves as Lage may opt for an unchanged side with Pedro Neto and Jonny continuing their recovery from injuries sustained last season.

Wolves vs Brentford – kick off at 12:30pm (UK time) on Saturday 18th September 2021
