Bottom of the table Wovles make the Journey to The Stadium of Light on Saturday to face a Sunderland side sitting comfortably in mid-table.
Sunderland were hammered 4-0 at Everton in their last game and Manager Martin O’Neil will be looking for a response from his side in front of their own supporters this weekend.
The Black Cats have won just one of their last five games, after O’Neil coming in when they were relegation candidates they have managed to turn their season around but will not want it to fade out.
O’Neil’s men will still be wanting a top ten finish and with just one of the top eight to play from now until the remainder of the season, this is a real possibility.
As for Wolves, they find themselves slumped at the foot of the table, nine points adrift from safety.
Terry Connor’s side have now lost their last seven games and really do like playing in the second tier of English football next season. Connor’s side have conceded 24 goals in eight games.
The fans at Molinuex must be incredibly frustrated, after sacking Mick McCarthy in February they have failed to find a replacement, therefore McCarthy’s former number two has been left with the task of keeping them in the Premier League.
Wolves have failed to keep a clean sheet since August, something that will concern everybody at the club.
When these two sides met at Moleniux earlier in the season it was the home side who ran out 2-1 winners, with both goals coming from Steven Fletcher.
Fletcher has 10 goals in the Premier League this campaign. The Scotsman will surely attract the attention of other sides if The Midlands side do face the drop.
Sunderland are clear favourites for this encounter, being placed at 1.47 (4/7) with StanJames to take all three points.
Nicolas Bendtner is in a good run of form at the moment, his odds to open the scoring are 4.5 (7/2) with BlueSQ.
Steven Fletcher is being offered at 10.00 (9/1) with Paddy Power to get the scoring underway at The Stadium of Light.
Kieran Richardson was Sunderland’s only goal scorer the last time these two met. You can get 17.00 (16/1) with Ladbrokeson the left back breaking the deadlock and doing the double over Wolves this season.
With the position Wolves are in they have no choice but to come out and attack, this could suit Sunderland and we could be in for a treat with lots of goals. The Black Cats to win 3-2 is a recommended bet, which has odds of 26.00 (25/1) with BetFred.
