The English Premier League clash between Brentford and Wolves was brought to an abrupt halt when a drone was spotted flying over the pitch. 

The match at the Brentford Community Stadium was paused in the first half itself, as players made their way to the tunnel. Fans began chanting “who’s the w***** with the drone” as they had to wait for a full 15 minutes before the teams returned to the pitch. 

Thereon, a short warmup followed before the match resumed, and remains goalless at the time of writing. Earlier in the game, two Bees players were involved in a tough clash. Mathias Jensen and Rico Henry were both left bloodied trying to win an aerial ball in the 21st minute of the game. Mads Roerslev and Shandon Baptiste came on as substitutes.

Brentford will be looking to end their streak of defeats, but coach Thomas Frank has expressed confidence in striker Ivan Toney, who ended his goal drought against Manchester United. Frank stated, “Of course I believe a lot in coaching finishing – though there is also that simple thing called quality that is very difficult to teach. For example, maybe Mathias Jensen’s two chances on Wednesday were probably better than Marcus Rashford’s chance – but he put it in the top corner. Matty tried to pass it in. I was happy to see Ivan back on the scoresheet against Manchester United – we know offensive players and goal-scorers need that goal. When it’s not happening it can be hard to keep going. So it was very important for him and the team, and he looked back to his normal standards following getting Covid.”

He further continued, “Ivan is a confidence person and player, he will always believe in himself but everyone in life is just that bit more confident when you are in the flow where it is all going your way.”
