Wolf Hunt

Wolves from the Black Country will arrive in SE7 on Saturday in big numbers to cheer their side on in their relegation battle. Their recent form hasn't been too shabby with five wins in ten and they should give us a good game.

Our own form over the last five games has been as good as we could reasonably have expected, winning three and drawing away at Champions Cardiff and promotion contenders Brighton.There will be an element of disappointment amongst our players that we didn't force one of the chances that fell to us in Cardiff because there would still be an outside chance of a play-off finish had we nicked another couple of points. As it is, we can still win this game and hope for the three sides above us to falter in their last three. Millwall have games in hand and could, theoretically, skate in but they look to have left themselves too much to do and form isn't with them.

After our last couple of dramatic Valley victories and the six goals at Oakwell, I am predicting another home win. Wolves will be playing under pressure and we   won't. If we can establish a lead I can't see Yow Wolves coming back. A winning flourish at the Valley would help address earlier disappointments and provide some balance for the Rothmans Yearbook.
