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:


GOAL! Wolves 0 - 2 Brentford (Mbeumo, 34’)⚽️

34 mins: Another one! David Raya fires a long ball up to Toney who’s strong enough to shake a tackle from Kilman and take the ball into the box. Mbeumo drifts into space at the back post and Toney picks him out with a squared pass. He’s in on goal and left with the simplest of tap ins to double Brentford’s lead!

Wolves 0 - 1 Brentford

33 mins: Chance! How’s he not scored! Wolves sweep up the pitch and give the ball to Raul Jimenez. He lays the ball off to Adama Traore who smokes an effort from the edge of the box. It’s an absolute rocket and rattles into the underside of the crossbar before bouncing clear!

Wolves 0 - 1 Brentford

30 mins: Disallowed! Toney’s found the back of the net again. Immediately after the restart Brentford work the ball out to the left and whip it into the box. Mbeumo seems to flick it on to Toney in the six-yard box. He brings it down and backheels it into the net! The offside flag goes up immediately and on review it seems as though Toney handled the ball this one gets chalked off too.

GOAL! Wolves 0 - 1 Brentford (Toney, 28’)⚽️

28 mins: Toney converts from the spot. Two steps and slots it into the bottom right corner as easy as you’d like. Brentford have the lead!

Penalty to Brentford!

Wolves 0 - 0 Brentford

26 mins: It’s given! Marcal almost rugby tackled Toney to ground as the corner came in. Jose Sa roughs up the penalty spot and Darren England shows him a yellow card. Ivan Toney has the chance to put Brentford in front.

Wolves 0 - 0 Brentford

24 mins: Brentford win their first corner of the game. There’s a bit of argy-bargy before the corner is taken then Sergi Canos delivers it into the box where Ruben Neves heads it behind for a repeat.

The second corner comes swinging in. Marcal and Toney are tussling in the box and both players go down. Darren England points to the spot and VAR are checking for a potential penalty!

Wolves 0 - 0 Brentford

21 mins: Brentford haven’t clicked yet in an attacking sense. Vitaly Janelt is closed out of the box by Max Kilman before finding a touch of space on the left side. He slips a pass into the area expecting a run from Rico Henry but the wide man doesn’t make the run.

Wolves 0 - 0 Brentford

18 mins: Chance! Franciso Trincao intercepts the ball in the middle of the pitch and sends it up to Traore. The big man drives forward on a mini-break before darting inside. He lines up in front of goal and shoots from range but the effort continues to rise and the ball goes over the crossbar.

Wolves 0 - 0 Brentford

15 mins: A slight tactical change from Brentford is seeing Sergi Canos drop deeper to help Ajer on their right side. It’s where Traore is operating and Thomas Frank is trying to limit the spaces he can run into.

Wolves 0 - 0 Brentford

13 mins: Traore continues to cause trouble on the left side for Wolves. He runs at Ajer again but this time the defender holds his ground and manages to block Traore’s attempted cross.

The corner is swung into the box but headed away by Brentford. It drops to Marcal who boots one from range but sends the effort wide of goal.
