Brentford have to settle for draw against Wolves


Brentford picked up a point against Wolves, who ended the game with 10 men after former Chelsea striker Diego Costa was sent off in the final moments.

Ben Mee put the Bees ahead with a brilliant scissor-kick five minutes into the second half.

Following a short corner, Bryan Mbeumo whipped the ball in from the left and defender Mee broke the deadlock in emphatic fashion.

However, Ruben Neves fired in from near the edge of the penalty area to level for Wolves less than two minutes later.

Costa was red-carded after referee Bobby Madley reviewed footage of him appearing to headbutt Mee.

Before that, both teams missed chances to make it 2-1.

For Brentford, Yoane Wissa should have scored but instead tried to find Ivan Toney, who later himself missed a chance when he was unable to find the target from close range after being teed up by Keane Lewis-Potter.

Brentford: Raya; Ajer (Roerslev 83), Pinnock, Mee, Henry; Janelt, Jensen (Damsgaard 36), Dasilva (Onyeka 83); Mbeumo (Canos 83), Toney, Wissa (Lewis-Potter 75)
Subs not used: Cox, Zanka, Ghoddos, Yarmoliuk.
