Brentford vs Wolverhampton | EPL 22-23 | Matchday 14
Even with the first quarter of the English Premier League season still yet to draw to a close, the competition has already heated right up, giving teams an early taste of what’s to come. And the Brentford vs Wolverhampton match is a perfect example of the twists and turns an EPL season like this can take.
Brentford, for its part, is managing to hold its own in the middle of the table, while Wolverhampton is in total disarray and can’t quite find its feet. Both teams know they need to give more to keep fighting in the Premiership, so expect tough competition. Neither of these teams is intimidated, and both will be out for the win.
Brentford vs Wolverhampton — A Battle for Space
After Years in the Lower Divisions, Brentford’s Chasing a Little More than Another Relegation
Brentford’s achievements to date are nothing to sniff at. Sure, they don’t have a boatload of Premier League titles to boast about. But the way they’ve battled for their rightful place amongst the UK’s soccer elites is still no minor achievement.
Don’t forget — even in the second division, clubs aren’t just playing a few weekend friendlies. Far from it. These are still some of the best clubs in the world with budgets to match, and they’re all fighting tooth and nail for their place in the hollowed EPL.
As such, we can’t help but admire how Brentford has consistently taken to the field like warriors in every match, seeking to inflict hurt on their opponents. Even in their first match, they managed a draw, which at least gave them a point for the day. This was shortly followed by a crucial victory against Manchester United, beating them with a resounding 4 – 0.
By match number seven, their record was two wins, two draws, and two defeats. These results left them in the middle of the table, rubbing shoulders with greats of the EPL, like Liverpool, Chelsea, and Newcastle.
Wolverhampton Has Been Hit Hard This Season, and So Far, They’re Not Recovering
The Wolves have been in the EPL for five consecutive seasons. And while those five years haven’t exactly been full of glory, their efforts to date have largely been consistent.
However, the full-force start to this season seems to have caught the Wolves unprepared, making it a tough nut to crack for this usually consistent performer. In fact, the season has been so dismal that until the game against Manchester City, they had just one win, which they pulled off against Southampton.
Apart from this lone victory, three draws and three defeats are about all the wanderers have achieved in the last few weeks. And to make matters worse, they’ve barely scored any goals, with just three from seven games.
So now, while the Wolves know they have some tough opponents, they also know that taking advantage of the Brentford vs Wolverhampton clash is vital to their season. Failure to grab the three points could send them right to the bottom of the table.
