Joao Teixeira scored his first two goals for Wolves as Walter Zenga’s side beat Brentford 3-1 at Molineux.

The 21-year-old hailing from Sierra Leonean parents pulled a goal back for Brentford before Ivan Cavaleiro scored Wolves’ stoppage-time third goal.

It was a bittersweet feeling for the Crystal Palace graduate who puts emphasis on improving in upcoming matches.

Kaikai tweeted “Disappointing result today, chance to make things right next game. Happy to get off the mark for @BrentfordFC #PraisebetoGod.”

He told the club website: “It’s always good to get on the score sheet. But at the end of the day, we’re a team and we wanted three points. We were a bit unfortunate today but we’ll go again next week.”

The Bees signed the highly-rated winger from Crystal Palace on a season-long loan on transfer deadline day.
