Managers Reaction 

Brentford manager Thomas Frank: “In general, I thought we played a solid game. We gave away two goals which weren’t really chances. If there was one team that deserved to win today, it was us. It was a great goal from Moutinho. For the second goal, I feel we could’ve got closer and Jonas could’ve done better as well. I haven’t seen the stats, but I think by far we had the most shots in the game today so I thought we were fine.”

Wolves manager Bruno Lage: “It was a strange first half and the two breaks didn’t help our rhythm but we played very well in the second half. My players brought the will I wanted. With time to work with the team, with consistency and personality on the ball, our performances in December and January have been good.”
