Brentford vs Wolverhampton Wanderers

, KO: 19:15 Jan 5, 2024, Brentford Community Stadium
Wolverhampton Wanderers

Brentford host Wolverhampton Wanderers in an FA Cup third round clash as they look to snap out of a difficult patch. Wolves have been in good form lately and having already won at the Brentford Community Stadium a few weeks ago, will be confident of getting the better of the Bees once again.

The FA Cup will be a welcome distraction for Brentford, who have struggled to find their best form in recent weeks. They have been on a steady decline down the table and are now just four points above the relegation zone having lost their last five matches.

Brentford head into Friday’s clash off the back of a 3-1 defeat to Crystal Palace in a Premier League fixture last time out. They took an early lead through Keane Lewis-Potter but were unable to hold on for long and were ultimately breached three times by the Eagles.
While defending seems to be the major issue for the Bees, another problem is that they appear to have lost the magic at the Brentford Community Stadium. Thomas Frank’s men have lost three of their last four matches in front of their fans.

In contrast to Brentford’s struggles, Wolverhampton Wanderers have been in great form in recent weeks. Gary O’Neil’s men have lost just once in their last six matches and travel to the Brentford Community Stadium off the back of three straight wins.

Wolverhampton Wanderers were in rampant mood in their previous fixture as they claimed a 3-0 victory over Everton. Max Kilman opened the scoring midway through the first half while Matheus Cunha and Craig Dawson were on target after the break.

While things appear to be smooth for Wolverhampton Wanderers, they have found it difficult on their recent travels suffering four defeats in their last five away matches. However, their only win in that run was a 4-1 victory at the Brentford Community Stadium in their previous fixture on the road.
