Wolves can strengthen their grip at the top of the Championship when they host Brentford on Tuesday.Wanderers moved 10 points clear thanks to a dramatic 2-1 win over promotion rivals Bristol City at Ashton Gate on Saturday.

But boss Nuno Espirito Santo was irritated by comments from City counterpart Lee Johnson before the match, when he said his side “need to do a job for the league” by beating Wolves.

Santo told the club website: “We are a team in the competition, we are not fighting against anybody. We are competing in each game.

“The kind of things that have been said like ‘let’s beat Wolves to help the competition’ doesn’t help the game.

“We are not fighting against each other so let’s stop with these things.

“Managers should worry about who they’re going to face and not the competition as a whole.”

Wolves will be without captain Danny Batth through suspension against Brentford after he was sent off at City.

Bees midfielder Alan Judge will be hoping to make his first appearance since August 2016 after recovering from a broken leg.
