Bees were riding high at the top of the league table having won nine of their first eleven matches, and had already topped the 60-point mark on three occasions.
But this would be a very different challenge against a Wolves side who were mid-table, sixth out of eleven after a solid start to the season with a 100 per cent home record and a Good Friday away win at Belle Vue.
Under normal circumstances the Bees would have been confident of extending their home record, but they were hit by a huge double blow in the days leading up to the meeting, first when skipper Scott Nicholls suffered a broken thumb in a crash during the Italian Grand Prix.
With Nicholls ruled out, Bees booked Swindon's Lee Richardson to guest at No.1 - but then 24 hours before the match, fellow heat-leader Rory Schlein was also on the sidelines having suffered concussion in Poland.
Rider-replacement was the only option for Schlein, leaving the Bees massively vulnerable against a Wolves' top-end comprising proven race-winners Peter Karlsson, Fredrik Lindgren and former Coventry captain Billy Hamill.
So that would require the lower-order to shine, and throw in a little local derby controversy as well and we have another classic Brandon encounter for you to re-live!
