Brentford are set to play Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Gtech Community Stadium on Saturday in the English Premier League.
Brentford come into this game on the back of a 4-0 win over Aston Villa in the league. A first-half brace from striker Danny Ings, as well as goals from Jamaican winger Leon Bailey and forward Ollie Watkins, secured the win for Aston Villa.
Wolverhampton Wanderers, on the other hand, lost 4-0 to Brendan Rodgers' Leicester City in the league. Goals from Belgian midfielder Youri Tielemans, winger Harvey Barnes, midfielder James Maddison and veteran striker Jamie Vardy sealed the deal for Leicester City.

Brentford vs Wolverhampton Wanderers Prediction
Brentford are currently 11th in the league and have won only one of their last five league games. Having started the season well, with a 4-0 thrashing of Manchester United in particular a shining highlight, the Bees are now struggling. Despite their troubling current form, Brentford boss Thomas Frank is in high demand; the Dane has been linked with Southampton and Aston Villa in recent weeks.
Striker Ivan Toney is undoubtedly the star of the side. The 26-year old has scored eight goals in the league this season and was rewarded with an England call-up in September. Toney's recent performances could potentially see him go to Qatar for the World Cup, which would be a huge achievement for the former Peterborough United striker as well as for Brentford.
Wolverhampton Wanderers, on the other hand, are 19th in the league, two points behind 17th-placed Leicester City. Having sacked Bruno Lage after a poor start to the season, Wolves are yet to appoint a permanent replacement despite being linked with options as varied as Julen Lopetegui and Michael Beale.
With strikers Raul Jimenez and Sasa Kalajdzic out injured, Wolves are struggling in attack.
Brentford to win here.
