EPL: Diego Costa sees red as Wolves hold Brentford



Diego Costa apologised to his Wolves team-mates after being sent off in second-half stoppage time of their draw at Brentford.

The striker was sent off for violent conduct after appearing to headbutt Brentford’s Ben Mee, and is now set to miss three matches with a likely return of the Boxing Day meeting with Everton following the World Cup.

“He’s apologised,” said interim head coach Steve Davis.

“When emotions are high it is difficult to discuss things, but we’ll have a conversation with him next week.

“Earlier, Ruben Neves’ equaliser had cancelled out Mee’s superb volley early in the second half to help Wolves to a point that moved them up one place to 18th.

An attritional and injury-laden first half gave way to a livelier second period, with Brentford’s Ivan Toney missing from close range late on.

But the Bees’ prolific striker was also booked for his fifth yellow card of the season, meaning he will miss their next outing against Nottingham Forest.
