The three points collected at Vicarage Road were Wolves’ first of the season.

They will be hoping to add to that tally today. However, Brentford will be tricky opposition having only lost once this season and defeated Arsenal on the opening day.

A win for Wolves would see them leapfrog the Bees in the Premier League table, lifting them up to ninth.

Seeing Wolves back in the top-half of the table will encourage fans, who will hope the club can make a push for European football.

Wolves now have ‘excellent options’

Ahead of today’s game, journalist Paul Doyle wrote in The Guardian that Wolves now have ‘excellent options’.

 

He was referring to both Hwang Hee-chan and Daniel Podence.

Both have look very sharp when they have featured. In last weekend’s game, it was Podence who created the opportunity for Hwang’s first goal against the Hornets.

Podence has come off the bench in the previous two league games in addition to starting in the club’s Carabao cup victory against Nottingham Forest last month.

After arriving at the end of August, Hwang’s only appearance was his goal-scoring debut against Watford. Given his performances, and some of the skills he has displayed in training, fans will be very excited to see how he does in the coming weeks and months.
