Next Up: Wolverhampton Wanderers

Bees at home again this weekend

20 January 2022

Brentford will play their second home match in less than 72 hours on Saturday, with Wolverhampton Wanderers the visitors to West London. The Bees were beaten 3-1 by Manchester United last night, in a match where the score line did not tell the tale. Wolves are our next visitors in a match that will kick-off at 3pm on Saturday, 22 January.

Brentford dominated much of the game against Manchester United last night but could not find a way through in a superb first half performance. The visitors scored twice quickly after the restart and then added a third. An Ivan Toney goal late on was no more than consolation.

The defeat leaves Brentford 14th in the Premier League table, having played more games than most other teams. They are behind Aston Villa on goal difference and a point ahead of Leeds United. The Bees are towards the bottom of a group of six teams separated by three points.

Wolves are six places and eight points ahead of Brentford. They beat Southampton 3-1 in their last match, on Saturday. That was their third win in four games after away victories against Manchester United and Brighton and Hove Albion. They have lost only three of their last 15 Premier League games after being beaten in three of their first four.

The last of those early season defeats was to Brentford. Toney scored a penalty to put The Bees in front and then set up Bryan Mbeumo for the second. Shandon Baptiste was sent off in the second half but Brentford got over the line.

This is their fourth season back in the Premier League, after winning promotion in 2018. Wolves took four points from Brentford on their way to promotion, with the game at Griffin Park ending 0-0. That was the fifth straight season the teams had done battle, including the 2013/14 campaign when The Bees won promotion from League One, finishing second behind champions Wolves. In those ten games Brentford won three and lost five with two 0-0 draws.
