Ivan Toney coolly celebrates after his opening goal against Wolves
Ivan Toney coolly celebrates after his opening goal against Wolves

Thomas Frank's Brentford earned their second league win of the season after a 2-0 victory at Molineux.

The Bees took the lead just before the half-hour mark via an Ivan Toney penalty he after wrestled to the ground by Wolves captain Conor Coady.

Brentford almost doubled their lead instantly after Toney flicked the ball into the net from point-blank range, before VAR disallowed the goal due to a handball.

The away side did however get their second of the game shortly after. Toney broke in behind the Wolves defence before playing the ball into the path of Bryan Mbuemo - who slotted the ball into the open net.

The Bees were reduced to 10 men in the second half, after Shandon Baptiste was sent off after a number of cynical fouls but Wolves could not get back into the game.

Frank was delighted after his side's victory. He said: "These players are amazing and they keep, surprising me isn’t the word, but impressing me.

“It was a very impressive, brave performance. In the second half we were down to 10 men but we defended with our heart and soul.

"We gave only one big chance away and that’s very impressive.”
