Good Attacking Performance

Brentford have a poor defensive record so far, having conceded 21 goals in their previous matches.
Thomas Frank will be forced to make changes to the plans for his squad, as injury or illness has depleted him of four of his Brentford players.
Wolverhampton Wanderers under pressure for a result as they go to fancied Brentford on Saturday
It was a humbling defeat at the hands of Leicester City for Steve Davis’s men in their last match, they will be hoping to get something out of this game for sure.
Also, Steve Davis may ponder the reasons why his Wolves team are struggling at the bottom of the table this season. But five defeats out of the last six matches, should be all the analysis that he really needs. With a nineteenth position in the league and 2 wins, 7 losses and 3 draws, they currently have nine points in the League having won two matches, drawn three games, and lost seven fixtures.
Wolves now travel, knowing that their current away form is woeful. So far this season they have drawn one game and lost five meetings matches on the road.
Winning this fixture will see Wolverhampton Wanderers on 12 points.
Wolves’s squad will likely be depleted of five of their key players when they start on Saturday, due to injury or illness.
