Toney stars as 10-man Brentford win at Wolves


Brentford earned their first top-flight away win for 74 years as they beat Wolves 2-0 despite playing the majority of the second half with 10 men.

Ivan Toney put Brentford ahead from the spot (28) after he had been hauled down in the box by Marcal, and he then turned provider for Bryan Mbeumo to tap home at the far post (35) to leave Wolves stunned.

Adama Traore hit the crossbar from a deflected shot in between the goals but Wolves were otherwise flat in front of goal, failing to register a shot on target despite a numerical advantage as Shandon Baptiste was sent off (65) for two needless yellow cards. It was Brentford who came closest to scoring the third, as Mbeumo hit the crossbar in the final minute.

The result means Brentord move up into the top half, registering their third clean sheet from five games this season, while Wolves have just three points from a possible 15 under Bruno Lage.
