Wolves have taken three straight wins in the top flight, beating Leicester, West Ham and Everton in that run. There’s more to that as well because Wolves have produced at least three goals in each of those. So they are pretty hot right now and looking back a little further have four wins in their last six played. On home soil, they have won their last two (scoring seven goals in total). Not too surprisingly they are going as favourites for this one. Overall only 38% of Wolves’ home games this season have gone over 2.5 goals.
The last two have done so though. Wolves have taken ac elan sheet in 31% of home games this season and half of their home wins have been by a one-goal margin. They haven’t been involved in a home draw in eleven now. The home record of Wolves this season reads W6 D2 L5. Of the goals which they have produced at home so far this season, 79% of them have been in the second half of matches. 8 of their 15 second-half goals have been in the final fifteen minutes of matches. Raul Jimenez has three goals in his last two games.
Wolves were 2-1 winners over Newcastle earlier this season
Wolves have lost only one of their last four league games against Newcastle (W2 D1)
Both teams have scored in just one of the last four meetings (all competitions)
Newcastle are unbeaten in four league trips to Wolves (W2 D2)
Newcastle suffered a 1-0 reverse against Spurs last time out. That snapped some positive form as they had won their previous two games. There has been a clear picture of Newcastle’s season. They have remained undefeated home and away against sides 14th or lower in the table this season. Considering they have lost 13 games this season overall you can see that they have had real troubles against the better sides. The Magpies have taken two points from their seven away games against sides currently in the top half of the t table.
Overall this season Newcastle are a W2 D5 L5 on their top flight travels. In that sequence of away games, Newcastle have netted just the nine goals. They have earned only the one point from their last four on the road and have failed to score in two of those four. Less than half of their away games have made it over 2.5 goals. Newcastle have earned a clean sheet in 33% of away games but haven’t earned one in their last four. They have been level at the half time break in eight of their road games. Huddersfield are the only side to have scored fewer league goals than Newcastle.
Wolves are in a confident mood at the moment and are growing in confidence in front of goal as well. They look as if they can hold their own against a low-scoring Newcastle side. Wolves to win to nil.
