I was praying that we would win as the bottom clubs are now starting to get lots of points under their belts, but deep in my heart I knew that we are now sinking into a relegation dogfight. With 10 players out (8 injured and 2 suspended) we had no chance, especially as Wolves were buoyed by their win against Chelsea on Xmas Eve. Thank goodness our match away to Man City was postponed that day. They took the lead in the 13th minute when they scored with a header with no Bees player anywhere near to mark him. Then right from our kick off they got their second. An under-hit back pass from Collins fell short of Flekken and they nipped in to score. Then almost immediately Wissa got one back for us and just after that Janelt should have scored with a header. More awful marking (Collins again) sees them get their third in the 28th minute. Then Collins could have redeemed himself but he put his header over the bar. In the second half Wolves hit the post before another terrible pass from Collins sees them get their fourth.
