Our match prediction:
Wolverhampton have been having their ups and downs of late. Following a 4-0 loss to Barnsley, the Wolves returned to winning ways at the weekend, with the team beating star-studded Newcastle United at St. James’ Park. Walter Zenga’s men proved their worth in the 2-0 win over Rafa Benitez’s men, but they need to keep on raising their form if they are to secure promotion to the Premier League. Wolverhampton’s next rivals Brentford hammered Preston 5-0 at the weekend and they are certainly high on confidence ahead of the trip to Wolverhampton. Both sides aim to extend their winning runs in the Championship and we predict that fans are going to see goals galore in Saturday’s football game at Molineux Stadium. Brentford attacker Scott Hogan scored a hat-trick against Preston and all eyes will be on him when the two teams face each other on Matchday 9.
Highligted Player (James Henry):
James Henry was born in Reading on 10 June, 1989, but he grew up in Woodley. He began playing football at his home-town club Woodley Saints, but he made progress during his spell at Reading’s youth academy. Henry is a winger who is capable of playing as a centre midfielder as well, but he failed to score for Reading in 10 league appearances for the club. After ending his loan spells with the likes of Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth, Norwich City and Millwall, he signed a permanent deal with the Lions on 28 July, 2010. Henry signed a three-year deal with Millwall and he made his home debut in a 4-0 win over Hull City. It has to be noted that Henry played for both Scotland and England at youth level in the past, but he has yet to make his debut for the first team. Henry was born in England, but his parents are Scottish and, as a result, he is eligible to play for both England and Scotland.
Highlighted Team (Brentford):
Based in London, Brentford compete in the Championship and they were founded in 1898. Griffin Park has been the home ground of the club since 1904 and the capacity of the venue is 12,300. The Bees have yet to play in the Premier League and it has to be noted that they made it to the FA Cup sixth round on four occasions (1937/1938, 1945/1946,1948/1949, 1988/1989). Brentford played in the League Cup round 4 in the 1982/1983 and 2010/2011 season and that is the club’s biggest success in the competition. Brentford’s main rivals are Fulham and Queens Park Rangers and they take on each other in the West London Derby. The rivalry with the Cottagers is probably the biggest and you should bear in mind that the clashes between the two teams have always been marred by crowd violence. The colour of Brenftord’s shirts is red and white and they wear black shorts.
