Brentford v Wolves Predictions

Wolves to win – 16/5

Brentford have been heading in the wrong direction over the past month with five defeats from their last six outings seeing them slip into the bottom half of the Premier League table.

Thomas Frank is having to deal with a number of injuries to key players, including the likes of Bryan Mbeumo and Rico Henry, while suspensions have also been hampering his team selections.

The Bees have been better on home soil this season, with 12 of their 19 points coming at the Gtech Community Stadium, but they have lost two of their last three fixtures in West London and confidence appears to be low.

It is a different story for Wolves right now, as they head into this clash on the back of a win over Chelsea on Christmas Eve and they will fancy their chances of claiming the spoils on Wednesday.

Gary O'Neil's side have struggled on the road and are on a four-game winless run away from home, but they head into this clash having taken seven points from the last 12 on offer and there is a fluency to their play.

With Wolves welcoming players back from injury and Brentford's treatment room still overcrowded, this looks like a prime opportunity for O'Neil's men to take all three points.

Matheus Cunha to score anytime – 11/4

Brazil international Matheus Cunha has really stepped up his game for Wolves since his loan move was made permanent in the summer and he can deliver once again on Wednesday.

The 24-year-old has scored five goals in the Premier League this season, only Hwang Hee-Chan (eight) has more for Wolves, and it's notable that four of those strikes have come on the road.

Cunha has had 41 attempts - the most shots of anyone in the squad - with 22 of those ending up on target.

With Brentford failing to keep a clean sheet in their last seven attempts, Cunha will be relishing the chance to take on this fragile defence.

Brentford Team News

Rico Henry, Bryan Mbeumo, Aaron Hickey, Kevin Schade, Kristoffer Ajer, Josh Dasilva are all ruled out through injury, while Mathias Jensen will be assessed.

Frank Onyeka, Ben Mee and Ivan Toney are suspended.

Wolves Team News

Joseph Hodge has recovered from a shoulder injury, but this clash is expected to come too soon for him.

Pedro Neto should be named in the squad after returning to full training, while Jean-Ricner Bellegarde and Craig Dawson are both in contention after illness and a knee issue respectively. Jonny Castro Otto remains unavailable.

Brentford v Wolves Stats

Brentford have lost five of their last six matches, suffering defeats to Liverpool, Arsenal, Brighton, Sheffield United and Aston Villa.

Wolves extended their unbeaten run on home soil to seven games after beating Chelsea 2-1 last time out, but Gary O'Neil's side have lost their last four away assignments.

Since losing 2-0 to the Bees in their first ever Premier League meeting in 2021, Wolves are unbeaten in the next three contests, with 2-1 and 2-0 wins coming either side of a 1-1 draw.
