The Wolves have a chance to put some space between themselves and the verge of the relegation zone this week when they host Norwich City at the Molineaux Stadium.
Wolverhampton Wanderers have won six of their last ten matches against Norwich, with Norwich City winning just once during this period – in a home game. Three of these matches ended in draws.
One of these occurred during Norwich City’s last visit to Wolverhampton, when the visitors drew 3-3 with the Wolves.
The Wolves are in deep trouble as the mid-season approaches, with four defeats and a single win to show for their last five matches. A loss at home to Stoke City on the weekend has left the club lurking just above the relegation zone in the league table.
The Wolves have scored only 5 goals in their last five matches. While the strikers have just managed a goal a game on average, defence has failed to make these goals count, conceding 12 goals during the same period of time.
Norwich City is battling to arrest its own slide down the league standings, and has made some progress in the last couple of weeks, defeating Newcastle in Norwich before achieving a draw against Everton at Goodison Park.
The Norwich strikers have been doing a decent job up front, with 9 goals scored in the past five fixtures. However, poor defence has undone much of the good work up front, with 11 goals conceded during the same period.
Norwich must fancy their chances of pulling of a win against an out of form Wolves in this fixture. While the Wolves have a good record against Norwich at the Molineaux Stadium, their recent results suggest they’re going to struggle in this match.
The strong Norwich attack has the potential to cut the ailing Wolves defence to shreds, while it doesn’t appear as if the Wolves have quite the same capacity to exploit Norwich’s weakness at the back.
Our Wolves vs Norwich City betting tip is to go with a lay bet on the home team at Betfair – a betting option that will pay out on both the draw and the Norwich City win.
