Brentford know all about Wolverhampton Wanderers’ goal threat this weekend having nearly signed him on loan from Sunderland last month.
Danny Graham was poised to put pen to paper on a temporary switch to Griffin Park before a move collapsed at the 11th hour.
The former Swansea City hitman joined Saturday’s opponents instead and made his debut in their 3-0 home loss to Nottingham Forest at the weekend.
Matt Maher, sports writer at the Express & Star , reckons Graham could be the answer to Wolves’ lack of firepower as the team have relied heavily on Bakary Sako.
He said: “The manager has said the mix isn’t right at the moment so he might decide to mix things up a bit this weekend. He may change up the midfield.
“Bakary Sako will certainly play though. He’s a powerful left winger and is the club’s top scorer with seven goals.
“They’ve relied on him to be the goal threat and he’s been asked to produce on a consistent basis.
“We’ve brought in Danny Graham. His Premier League career has hit the rocks and has barely played this season.
“He’s come here to get some games under his belt and get himself back on track.
“Danny still isn’t that old, he's the right side of 30, but hasn’t really done the business.
He’s only played one game for Wolves. They signed him a few weeks ago but the international break disrupted his progress.”
With Sako and Graham very much on the radar, Maher’s final pick for this week’s three to watch is Kevin McDonald, who at 6ft 2ins, was a double winner of player-of-the-year awards last season at Wolves.
He added: “For such a big bloke, he’s a very good footballer. Kenny Jackett has converted him into a defensive midfielder, and he really can get up and down the pitch.
“The Scot makes things tick and is the playmaker in the middle and Brentford will need to be aware of him. He is a player who is capable of running games and dictating the tempo.”
