Wolverhampton Wanderers have had a dream start to the 2017/18 season, with three wins in the Championship and a win in the League Cup, but last weekend, Cardiff City – who also got off to a perfect start – beat Wolves 2-1 at Molineux in the league.
Wolves put in a good showing, but it was the man who has turned out to be one of the signings of the summer, Nathaniel Mendez-Laing, who ended up being the decider. The former Wolverhampton Wanderers academy player scored just five minutes after Leo Bonatini had levelled the score for the home team, ending the game 2-1.
Nevertheless, Wolves remain favourites to win the Championship this season, and it’s no wonder why. The team in amber have been defying their historical records and have a mighty squad of players to lean back on.
Great Early Signs for Wolves
For Wolves to get back on track, they’ll need to put in a convincing display against Brentford and walk away with all three points. Against the Bees, Wolves have been hit and miss over the last couple of seasons, winning twice and losing twice, but luckily they’ve been making a point of ironing out these inconsistent ties.
