Wolves vs Hull City
Wolves are back in Championship action against a struggling Hull City at Molineux in their 2nd game in quick succession over the Easter period.
Wolves currently top the Championship and are favourites to be promoted as champions. Unsurprising when you look at the type of players Nuno Espirito Santo has brought in. The Portuguese certainly means business and has shown that by bringing in players with top level experience in some of Europe's best leagues. Players like Neves, Bonatini and Jota have featured numerous times for Porto and Estoril in Portugal and Cavaleiro and Costa for Monaco in Ligue 1. It's unsurprising that these are the players scoring the goals for Wolves.
Wolves recorded an impressive 2-1 win over Middlesbrough on Friday, even after going down to 9-men with a late Patrick Bamford strike being too little too late to rescue anything from the game. The 2 players sent off were Neves and Doherty so they will be missing for the visit of Hull City. Neves will be a miss but Wolves still possess quality in midfield.
Wolves home record is strong with only 2 defeats and 3 draws, 1 defeat since August, and have made light work of some strong Championship sides.
Hull have quite recently changed manager which saw Nigel Adkins come to the helm. Results have improved slightly but they still sit in 18th position. Their away record is what lets the Tigers down as they sit 3rd from bottom on away results with only Bolton and Birmingham showing worse away form.
Hull's last game was Saturday evening, a 0-0 draw at home to Aston Villa, so Wolves will have had an extra day to prepare for this match. With the home side being the better team anyway we should see a home win and it wouldn't be a surprise to see them cover the handicap.
