Nathan Collins endures nightmare Wolves reunion as Brentford slump continues

Wolves dominate Brentford in 4-1 win

Since the Christmas Eve win over Chelsea, Wolves have been victorious in their match against Brentford, following up with a 4-1 win in London. With 10 players unavailable due to injuries or suspensions, Brentford struggled defensively and gifted two goals to Wolves through the former Wolves defender, Nathan Collins. Hwang Hee-chan scored twice, taking his tally for the season to 11, as the game ultimately ended in a embarrassing defeat for Brentford.

Wolves off to a flying start

Barely 10 seconds after a restart, Hwang Hee-chan rounded Brentford goalkeeper Mark Flekken to tap into an empty net after a disastrous backpass from Nathan Collins gifted them their first goal of the match. Then, with a totally unmarked Mario Lemina, Wolves found the net again in the 13th minute after a rare error from Brentford’s defense.

Brentford tries to claw their way back

Brentford managed to pull one back after a clever flick from Neal Maupay allowed Yoane Wissa to score. They came close to leveling the playing field when Jose Sa saved a close-range header from Vitaly Janelt. However, they couldn’t keep up and shortly conceded their third goal to Hwang.

Wolves seal the deal

Wolves sealed their victory with a simple finish from Jean-Ricner Bellegarde just 11 minutes before the end of the match. The goal was set up by a lazy pass from Nathan Collins across the face of the Brentford goal, intercepted by Matheus Cunha. This concluded a nightmarish evening for Brentford and a stunning win for Wolves, breaking their longstanding losing record in the capital.
