On Saturday, Brentford and Wolves played out a 1-1 draw at Brentford Community Stadium. Both Brentford and Wolves came from defeats in their previous league games. Brentford were looking to get back to winning ways after losing 4-0 to Aston Villa in their last match. Wolves had lost their previous match against Leicester City. Brentford and Wolves currently occupy 11th and 18th spots in the league, with 15 points and 10 points respectively after 14 matches.

After an uneventful first half, whatever was said in the dressing room at half time, seemed to have a positive effect on Brentford who started the second half strongly, with an early goal from Ben Mee in the 50th minute. In the end though, their lead was short-lived, as Ruben Neves equalised for Wolves, 52 minutes in. The match ended wih a 1-1 draw.

Substitutions for Brentford included Mikkel Damsgaard, Keane Lewis-Potter, Mads Roerslev Rasmussen, Frank Onyeka and Sergi Canos for Mathias Jensen, Yoane Wissa, Kristoffer Ajer, Pelenda Da Silva and Bryan Mbeumo, respectively. Wolves brought on Joao Moutinho and Goncalo Guedes, to replace Matheus Nunes and Adama Traore.

The referee booked Bryan Mbeumo, Mikkel Damsgaard and Ivan Toney from Brentford. Wolves had the worst of it though, with Nelson Semedo, Daniel Podence and Ruben Neves seeing yellow, and Diego Costa then sent off with a red.

Brentford will play their next fixture away against Nottingham Forest, while Wolves will face Brighton & Hove Albion at home.
