Sky Sports pundit David Edwards expects his former club Wolves to beat Brentford on Saturday.

Bruno Lage’s side got their Premier League season belatedly off and running with a 2-0 win at Watford last weekend.

Next up is a match against another promoted side, when Thomas Frank’s Bees visit Molineux.

And Edwards wrote in the Express and Star he expects Wolves to have too much for their visitors.

“Newly-promoted Brentford visit Molineux on Saturday lunchtime and it’s probably a good thing Wolves face them a little bit into the season rather than the first or second game,” he wrote.

“I watched their opening game against Arsenal and the intensity they played at was phenomenal. They’ll be well organised and play some really exciting football.

“But I think, back at Molineux, Wolves will go for the throat early, and I can see the talent in attack being too much for Brentford, whose defence won’t be as good as what Lage’s men have faced so far.”

This is certainly a presentable fixture for Wolves as they look to build some momentum.

After getting no points from a really tricky start, Lage will likely have viewed back-to-back games against promoted sides as a real opportunity to get two wins.

Brentford have quality, energy and a distinctive style, but if Wolves play like they have been, they should get the win Edwards fancies them to get.
