Perhaps I’ve been a little hypocritical.
I’ve been banging on for weeks about the need to collect scrappy points and we’ve done that in the last two matches.
But I don’t feel my comments on Saturday were unjust. Rotherham were incredibly bad and yet Wolves were lucky to beat them.
Now we’re off to Griffin Park where we’ve been skinned alive on our last two visits hoping for something much better.
It’s a difficult fixture, but it’s one of our games in hand and yet another chance to create breathing space. We need a big performance and the result to go with it.
From the outside looking in, it seems like a bit of a nothing mid-table season for the Bees. Not that we have any right to turn our noses up at such luxuries.
And for a club that have spent many years in League One and lower, they’re probably not too unhappy about being considered a solid Championship outfit.
Losing Scott Hogan late on in the January transfer window was probably a bit of a blow to their immediate aspirations, but that money could help them improve next season.
Their home form has been decent, but not overly intimidating thus far with 7 wins, 5 draws and 5 defeats.
Rajiv van La Parra scored the winner for Huddersfield on Saturday and they won’t fancy losing two at home on the spin.
Added to that I get the genuine sense that Dean Smith hates Wolves, so they’ll probably be running around like feral dogs desperate to heap more misery on our already horrible season.
I get that Paul Lambert wants to send out players that are going to scrap for every point, but I think he should be showing a bit more adventure.
I might be the only one, but I really feel like Helder Costa has checked out. You can’t ask players with limited ability to be better, but you can ask players with ability to try harder.
For the moment, I’d give Cavaleiro a go down the left and keep Marshall down the right.
Weimann has a goal a game record as a central striker so must start. Maybe playing alongside Dicko with Edwards making way in midfield?
And of course, I’m not fan of midfielders at full-back, so I’d change that too, but not holding my breath on that one.
I don’t like the look of this fixture so would be happy with another ugly draw. Even that would take us a point and a position further away from danger.
That said Fulham on Saturday looks even worse, so perhaps we should be going all in on this one trying to get a win?
Up The Wolves!
