FILE: Salah scores 100th Premier League goal

Ivan Toney inspired Brentford to their first away win in the top flight for 74 years with a 2-0 victory at Wolves.

Toney almost moved to Molineux from Northampton as a teenager in 2014, the move collapsing when he failed a medical, so it was perhaps inevitable he would star as Wolves slumped to a fourth straight home Premier League defeat.

The 25-year-old had a goal, an assist and two disallowed in the first half alone as a clinical Brentford side got their first top-flight win since beating Leeds 2-1 in 1947, with Bryan Mbeumo also on target.

A second-half red card for Shandon Baptiste threatened to spoil Brentford’s afternoon, but, even though Wolves finished on top, they failed to score for a fourth league match out of five this season. Relive all the action below:


Wolves 0 - 2 Brentford

76 mins: Coady hits Mbeumo with a heavy tackle as the Brentford striker tries to hold the ball up in the final third. The striker responds in kind when he loses possession and both men go down with Wolves winning a free kick.

72 mins: Podence replaces Marcal for Wolves. He moves into the number 10 position behind Jimenez and Hwang with Trincao slotting into the vacant left-back position.

Brentford have been pushed right back. Toney is getting involved in defence before the ball rolls to Norgaard who boots it long.

Wolves 0 - 2 Brentford

67 mins: Thomas Frank makes a change as Brentford try to marshall this game to its conclusion. Sergi Canos is taken off for Frank Onyeka.

Chance! Big chance from Wolves as Joao Moutinho flicks a ball into the middle of the box. Jimenez chests the ball down to Hwang who has a great chance to score. He’s about to let fly but Ajer slides in at the last minute to knock the ball clear. Fantastic defending.

RED CARD! Baptiste is off!

Wolves 0 - 2 Brentford

65 mins: What a stupid thing to do. Trincao receives the ball and flies through the midfield. Shandon Baptiste tries to stop him by manhandling him and dragging the forward to ground. It’s a certain yellow card, Baptiste’s second off the game and he has to go! Thomas Frank can’t believe it.

Wolves 0 - 2 Brentford

62 mins: Adama Traore is doing his best to make something happen for Wolves. He’s made a number of runs down the right wing and whipped in a few crosses but none of his teammates are in getting in the box to get on the end of them.

Wolves 0 - 2 Brentford

59 mins: Toney slips through a narrow gap on the inside right before sliding a pass into the box. Shandon Baptiste is slow off the mark to get to the ball and Marcal beats him to it. As if to make up for his error Baptiste forcefully tries to win back the ball and hits Marcal with a strong tackle. The defender goes down and Baptiste is shown a yellow card.

Wolves 0 - 2 Brentford

56 mins: Nice work Ajer as he tackles Jimenez to stop a Wolves attack before sprinting down the right side and linking up with Mbeumo to get the ball to the byline. He attempts to cross but mishits the pass and the ball skews out of play.

Wolves 0 - 2 Brentford

53 mins: The crowd is getting a bit fiesty. Brentford’s players are taking their time over set pieces, eking out a few seconds here and there. David Raya changes his gloves before taking a free kick and is met with a chorus of boos from the home fans.
