Wolves have kept up their winning start to 2022 with a 2-1 win in bizarre circumstances away at Brentford.

This clash will go down as one of the strangest Premier League encounters of recent years with a record 27 minutes of first half stoppage time between Wolves and Brentford.

Concussion subs for Mathias Jensen and Rico Henry ensured a lengthy break before a bizarre drone sighting forced the players off before the break.

But if the first 45 was to be dominated by drones, the football finally burst into life after the restart.

Nelson Semedo’s chip into the box wasn’t cleared properly and Joao Moutinho kept his cool to clip one past Jonas Lossl.

That goal did liven things up late on as Toti Gomes was dismissed for a lunge at Kristoffer Ajer and Bees star Ivan Toney cracked home a deserved equalizer.

However, Wolves have shown themselves to be made of stern stuff recently, and Ruben Neves latched on to Moutinho’s flick to arrow home a cracking winner.

Full Time from the Brentford Community Stadium it’s Brentford 1 Wolves 2
