Can Wolves boost their sale price by tearing a chunk out of the Terriers?
Wolves are up for sale but Steve Morgan will be upping the asking price if the team can reproduce the form they showed at Fulham on Tuesday night on a regular basis.
Various theories are circulating regarding Morgan’s decision to sell up but he’ll leave the club in good shape. There are superb training facilities available, the academy is thriving and the stadium has consent for a further expansion should the need arise. But more important to possible investors is that Wolverhampton Wanderers are largely debt free.
Of course, there aren’t that many multi-millionaires out there – neighbours Aston Villa and West Bromwich Albion have been on the market for a while – but there are worse clubs out there for anyone who would want to risk their fortune in the fickle world of football.
Fulham ended up with 10 men, one more than Preston had the previous Saturday, but this time Wolves cashed in with Sheyi Ojo, Adam Le Fondre and James Henry all finding the net. It was a great all-round team performance and maybe the manager has stumbled on a line-up and formation that can thrive in the Championship.
The footballing Gods have been smiling on Wolves over the last few days but maybe a change of luck was overdue given the misfortune they’ve suffered with injuries to key players in the opening weeks of the season.
Huddersfield Town are up next at Molineux in a televised game this Saturday lunchtime and we make Wolves 19/20 to come out on top in our Full Time Result betting, even though the Terriers have improved themselves lately and haven’t lost at Molineux since 1989, though Wolves did win easily at the John Smith’s Stadium in February.
Ojo, Le Fondre and Kevin McDonald have now all scored twice in the Championship this season and we have priced the trio up at 9/1, 5/1 and 12/1 respectively in our First Goalscorer betting. Conor Coady is available again following suspension but this match could come too soon for Dave Edwards, who has only just returned to training.
Both teams have scored in the last four meetings and we have priced up that outcome this time at 5/6. But Wolves haven’t scored a first-half goal in any game in the Championship since the middle of August. The Draw/Wolves in our Half Time/Full Time list is 17/5 and you can back Wolves to win 3-1 in our Correct Score betting at 14/1.
The match kicks off at 12.30pm on Saturday, October 3rd at Molineux
