London, Sept. 18 (BUS): Evan Toni scored a penalty and set up the second goal for his attacking partner Brian Mbiomo in Brentford’s 2-0 win over Wolverhampton on Saturday, as the young club maintained an impressive start to the first season in the Premier League. .
An Associated Press report said Brentford was forced to continue winning by 10 men after Chandon Baptiste was sent off at Molineux in the 64th minute.
The southwest London club has lost only one of its five opening matches in its first season in England’s top flight since 1947.
And in Tony, he has a striker of real quality – plus the poise of a penalty kick.
Tony earned a penalty himself when he was beaten by Markal when they wrestled in the area at a corner.
And the striker got up, and took a penalty kick in the bottom corner in the 28th minute, with Wolverhampton goalkeeper Jose Sa.
Six minutes later, Toni – who scored two disallowed goals in the first half and was a handful of Wolverhampton’s defense – broke down the left and sent in a low, precise cross that Mbiomo tapped into the far post for the first time. Season goal.
Wolverhampton have now lost four of their five matches, and have been poor in progress even with an extra player after Baptiste received a second yellow card for pulling off Francisco Trincao’s shirt just as the Brentford midfielder was about to be substituted.
Mbiomo hit the post with an arched shot in stoppage time after a split, and Brentford was regularly threatening with a third goal.
