Brentford to beat Wolves


Brentford handed injury blow

Ahead of taking on Wolves, Brentford have been dealt a fresh blow on the injury front.

The player in question is January signing Yunus Emre Konak, who has suffered an early setback in his Bees career after suffering a hip injury.

Konak tore his hip adductor tendons in the warm-up before a friendly against Danish side Brondby last month and is facing months out.

On the injury, Brentford manager Thomas Frank said pre-Wolves: “It’s the story of our season. He got injured in the warm-up [before] a behind-closed-doors game against Brondby. He had surgery. Yunus, we’re talking about months for him.”

Frank also confirmed Josh Dasilva is a long-term absentee: “In training [he had] an unlucky action, unfortunately. Let’s get surgery out the way, but I don’t want to put a timeframe on it. That is a long-term one.

“Very sad, I feel for Josh massively. He’s been very unlucky. It’s a player I’ve been working with for a long time. Normally over time your relationship grows, and he’s a lovely person, so that was tough to take.”
