‘Rare’ start for midfielder as Gary O’Neil struck by suspension - Wolves predicted XI vs Brentford

Here’s how we predict Wolverhampton Wanderers will line up against Brentford in the FA Cup third round replay at Molineux.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have a second chance to progress in the Emirates FA Cup as they take on Brentford in a third round replay at Molineux on Tuesday night.

The Old Gold fought back from 1-0 down with 10 men in the reverse fixture, with summer signing Tommy Doyle getting on the scoresheet to round off a resilient display.

There's extra motivation to make it through as West Bromwich Albion will play the winner in the fourth round after the Baggies thrashed Aldershot Town 4-1 on their own FA Cup outing.

Gary O'Neil has somewhat of a selection headache going into this one as Joao Gomes is suspended following his red card last time out, while Mario Lemina and Craig Dawson are doubts.

Brentford's three-back setup was well counteracted last time out and we think Wolves will go with their own once again. With that in mind, here's our predicted lineup for Tuesday.
