John Swift scored twice as Brentford ended a run of three straight Championship defeats with a 3-0 win over Wolves.
The west London club had won just once in eight league games and slipped down the table but Sergi Canos added the other to leave Wolves winless from seven.
Swift forced home a 39th-minute opener via Wolves defender Ethan Ebanks Landell, who ricocheted the Chelsea loanee's shot back against the winger and into an empty net.
The impressive Alan Judge had hit the post beforehand as the Bees searched for confidence, while Marco Djuricin squandered a host of chances including an unmarked header he sent harmlessly over the bar.
The away side struggled, meanwhile, with Nathan Byrne sending a close-range effort straight at the 'keeper and Kevin McDonald also drawing a save out of David Button just after the break.
And Canos fired Brentford's second low into the far corner on 56 minutes after a fine move saw Judge find the Spaniard inside in the box.
Canos then turned provider 11 minutes later when his low cross evaded defenders and found Swift waiting unmarked in the penalty area.
Jack O'Connell almost found a fourth the for the hosts, but his stoppage-time header was well saved by Carl Ikeme.
