Full time: Brentford 1-2 Wolves
Premier League: We’ve had bloodshed, drones, delays, a malfunctioning referee’s battery pack and three goals during a very eventful afternoon at the Brentford Community Stadium. The game ends with Wolves taking the points and Thomas Frank being shown a red card for dissent as he stormed on to the pitch at the final whistle to protest about something or other.

Updated at 4.39pm GMT
Leeds 0-0 Newcastle: Ahead of a week in which Newcastle are supposed to be bringing in several new recruits, Eddie Howe loses a third player to injury in one game. Jamaal Lascelles is the latest to limp off and it looks like he’s pulled a hamstring. Martin Dubravka takes the captain’s armband.
Brentford 0-0 Wolves: The players of both side come out for their delayed second half, only for referee Peter Banks to trot back to his dressing-room because there’s something wrong with the battery pack on his arm.
Championship: Luton’s Reece Burke is sent off for a last-man foul on Rhian Brewster, who he wrestled to the ground. In other news, Coventry’s game against QPR has been delayed for 10 minutes for - I think - a medical emergency of some sort in the crowd. It remains 1-1 at the Coventry Building Society Arena.
Leeds 0-0 Newcastle: Newcastle are on the ropes and lose another player to injury. Paul Dummett is the latest casualty although I’m not sure exactly what’s wrong with him.

Manchester United 0-0 West Ham: Alphonse Areola saves the first shot on target in the game at Old Trafford. Fred pulled the trigger but West Ham’s goalkeeper was able to keep it out.
Brentford 0-0 Wolves: We’re 15 minutes of the 19 added on at Brentford in after the break in play but the action on the pitch is far less entertaining than that which preceded it in the sky above. There are no chances of note to report, although I can reveal that Ivan Toney has shorn his dreads and is now sporting what I believe the kids call “a shape-up”.

Brentford 0-0 Wolves: The drone has buggered off and the players are back out at the Brentford Community Stadium. Between the injuries to Rico Henry and Mathias Jensen, and the aerial intervention from the drone, half-time is some way away.
Newcastle 0-0 Leeds: Ilan Meslier saves brilliantly from Chris Wood, who pounces on a bouncing ball in the penalty area from six yards out after a corner. The flag goes up and it turns out the big Kiwi was offside but Meslier didn’t know that.
Championship: Reading equalise against Huddersfield at the Madejski, where it’s now 3-3 between the sides. Michael Morrison chips in with the latest.
Leeds 0-0 Newcastle: Bad news for Newcastle, who lose Joelinton to a groin injury. It doesn’t look great as he limps off and you’d have to think it could rule him out for six weeks or more. He’ll have a scan tomorrow and in the meantime is replaced by Sean Longstaff.
Brentford 0-0 Wolves: This, from our man at the Brentford Community Stadium.
Brentford 0-0 Wolves: The drone continues to fly over the Brentford Community Stadium, where the players have been taken off the field. Located just six miles from Heathrow Airport, it’s a bit of a security risk and now a helicopter has been summoned to ... do something or other? They’re hardly going to blast it out of the sky, are they?
Championship: Having fallen behind inside a minute, Fulham have now taken the lead against Stoke City. Munez turns in the box and scores his second of the afternoon off the foot of the post. At St Andrews, where fans were protesting about their owners before today’s game, Birmingham City have gone 1-0 up against Barnsley through Miguel Fernandez.
Drone stops Brentford v Wolves
Brentford 0-0 Wolves: Both Mathias Jensen and Rico Henry have had to go off to receive treatment for their respective head injuries after the aforementioned clash. Thomas Frank has sent on a pair of concussion substitutes, which means one or both of the stricken players could return.
Now there’s more drama at the Brentford Community Stadium as the referee takes the players off the pitch because somebody is flying a drone overhead. No, really.

Leeds 0-0 Newcastle: Newcastle finally get a shot off but Ilan Meslier gets down to his right to save superbly from a low Jonjo Shelvey drive from just outside the penalty area.

Leeds 0-0 Newcastle: Raphina has a header blocked after the ball bounced his way when Martin Dubravka had rushed out to narrow the angle and block a shot.
Brentford 0-0 Wolves: Ouch. Mathias Jensen and Rico Henry have collided in mid-air, clashing heads in the process. Jensen comes out worst from the collision and has blood pouring from a laceration.
Manchester United 0-0 West Ham: Cristiano Ronaldo fails to convert a wonderful Bruno Fernandes cross. Manchester United are on top against West Ham but have yet to score.
Championship: Huddersfield have come from behind to take a 2-1 lead against Reading. Danny Ward pounces on a rebound to shoot them ahead in Berkshire.

Premier League clockwatch ...
Watford and Norwich got the weekend’s top flight action under way last night, with Norwich prevailing courtesy of three unanswered goals which may spell the end of Claudio Ranieri’s short Vicarage Road reign.
Today’s early kick-off was at Goodison Park, where it’s currently half-time. Everton trail Aston Villa after Emi Buendia rose to flick the ball home from a Lucas Digne corner seconds before the half-time whistle.
In the subsequent celebrations down by the corner flag, both Digne and Matty Cash were hit by one of several bottles thrown by some idiots in the crowd. Yes, the same bottle, which ricocheted from one man’s head on to the other.
We have a trio of three o’clock kick-offs ahead of this evening’s set-to between Southampton and Manchester City at St Mary’s: Brentford host Wolves, Newcastle travel to Leeds and Manchester United take on West Ham.
We’ll keep you posted on all the goals as they go in, flag up any major talking points and keep an eye on proceedings further down the pyramid on another busy afternoon of football action.
