Wolves' positive Premier League run stalled with a 2-0 home loss to Brentford on Saturday.

The defeat was Wolves' second in a row at Molineux, those results coming either side of an excellent 4-2 victory at Chelsea.

The hosts were not helped by top scorer Hwang Hee-chan's absence because of a calf injury and then fellow forward Matheus Cunha going off with a hamstring problem midway through the first half against the Bees.

Manager Gary O'Neil said: "We've done a really good job as a group. The group have done an unbelievable job maintaining a high level generally.

"I'm absolutely gutted we fell below it and the players will be as well, so we'll use the elation of last week and what we managed to produce compared to how we feel now to make sure we perform better than we did.

"There were factors which contributed but, if we look at the performance as a whole, it was obviously nowhere near good enough."
