Brentford’s last league defeat came on 12 October and that meant 19 games without defeat going into today’s top of the table clash with third placed Wolves. The Midland side went to Griffin Park and made light work of their opponents.
Brentford were the better side in the opening stages of the game but it was Wolves who had the first real opening of the match as Dicko fired straight at the Brentford keeper when through on goal. The first half did not produce any clear-cut chances, but Wolves took the lead just before half-time when James Henry scored with a curling ball from a Kevin McDonald's pass.
In the second half, Forshaw and Judge both went close to putting the Bees on level terms with long-range efforts that went just wide. But Michael Jacobs finished off a terrific Wolves counter-attack before striking the third into the top corner. Then in the 85th minute, Jacobs slid the ball underneath an oncoming Button against the run of play before striking from the edge of the area to seal Wolves’ sixth successive win.
