Wolves Preview – Can Wolves halt slump?

Wolves’s barren spell in the Premier League continued in midweek when the hosts suffered a 2-1 defeat at home to Everton which extended Wolves’s winless run in the top flight to five matches, while picking up just the one win out of their last eight matches overall.

This current run of form is a far cry from last season’s consistent campaign and five defeats within this eight-match sequence underlines the problems that Wolves have had in emulating last season’s impressive campaign as they now find themselves in a disappointing 14th place.

Results at home have also been inconsistent as Wolves have won just one of their last five matches at Molineux with goals also drying up as six of Wolves’s nine home matches have resulted in under 2.5 goals.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score
2.20

West Brom Preview – Can West Brom revive hopes?

Four matches into his new tenure at The Hawthorns and West Brom manager, Sam Allardyce, is still looking for his first win in charge of The Baggies as the visitors head into this important local derby on the back of three defeats on the trot in all competitions – the last being a defeat against League One outfit, Blackpool, on penalties in the FA Cup.

Heavy Premier League losses to Leeds United 5-0 and Arsenal 4-0, both at home, certainly haven’t helped matters either while the bigger picture shows that West Brom have now failed to win any of their last eight matches in all competitions.

Indeed, The Baggies have managed to collect just one win so far this season and that came in the shape of a 1-0 home win against fellow strugglers, Sheffield United, but they have at least avoided heavy defeats on the road; six of West Brom’s eight away matches have ended in under 2.5 goals as a consequence.
