The Wolverhampton Wanderers recorded their first points and first goals of the Premier League season in their most recent match, a 2-0 win against Watford. They will look to keep up the momentum Saturday when they host Brentford.
Wolverhampton was the last club among those in England’s top four divisions to score a goal this season.

The Wanderers started their season with three straight losses before breaking through against Watford. Watford’s Francisco Sierralta scored an own goal, and then Wolverhampton substitute Hwang Hee-chan added the second in his club debut.
The Wanderers are undefeated in their last four meetings with Brentford. The teams last met in January 2018, when Wolverhampton was en route to winning that season’s Championship title. Both clubs have evolved since those days in the second tier of English football.
Newcomer Brentford joined Wolverhampton in the Premier League this season and notched a 2-0 win over Arsenal on the opening day of the season. The club then drew two straight matches before losing 1-0 at Brighton & Hove Albion.
Brentford’s Ivan Toney opened his Premier League account in a 1-1 draw with Aston Villa prior to the international break and will look to rediscover his scoring touch in the midlands. Christian Norgaard, Sergi Canós and Ethan Pinnock have also been among Brentford’s top assets thus far.
A first home victory of the season could be enough to lift Wolverhampton into the top 10 in the league, while a defeat for either side could slide that club into the bottom half of the standings.
