Wolves hoping to sign off with three points before the international break
Wolves come up against former striker Sam Vokes as they look to bounce back from successive home defeats against high-flying Burnley at Molineux this weekend.
Being unable to name a settled side has undoubtedly hampered Kenny Jackett in the first third of the season and the manager will be hoping for more stability after the international break.
But it’s vital that Wolves pick up points where they can, starting against Sean Dyche’s Clarets. Wanderers have had a pretty good record against Burnley at Molineux down the years. They have won almost two-thirds of their previous home encounters with the Lancashire side and only lost 12 of 61.
Jackett took the unusual step of withdrawing Benik Afobe, along with Nathan Byrne, at half time on Bristol City on Tuesday but it’s almost inconceivable that the club’s top scorer won’t start against Burnley. Grant Holt must be edging closer to a first full appearance since joining on loan from Wigan as Wolves will need someone to take the fight to the visitors’ big defenders.
Danny Batth and Mike Williamson will have to keep a close eye on Andre Gray, however, who has scored six times in his last five appearances. But, if they can, a Wolves’ victory is priced at 29/20 which could be good value as they could easily have beaten another team at the top, Middlesbrough, in their last home game had they had a little more luck in front of goal.
