I think we’re safe from relegation. That’s the only big plus to come out of last weekend.
For Blackburn to make up 11 points on us with only 15 left to play for (18 in our case) seems unlikely.
Add to that all the teams between us and the bottom three, most of whom have to play each other and it would take a horrible combination of results to send us down.
It would be nice to take matters into our own hands though and maybe even power into the top half.
I’d like to see us beat last season’s tally of 58 points too.
The Seagulls are close. Very close. A win tomorrow won’t mathematically guarantee promotion but probably as good as.
I doubt Huddersfield will manage more than 86 points anyway so they’re probably home and dry.
Good for them I say. They’ve chipped away at the top six for years and deserve their chance in the Premier League.
Chris Hughton has proven himself a very good manager and shrewd additions like Glenn Murray and Anthony Knockaert have taken them on a stage.
I’d like to see them win the league ahead of Newcastle, but any sentiment obviously goes out the window tomorrow.
I think Jon Dadi Bodvarsson is worth a start, particularly if Helder Costa doesn’t make it back.
But hopefully our star man will return and give us the best possible chance in a difficult looking fixture.
Paul Lambert might be tempted into ringing the changes after last weekend’s limp showing, but I’d prefer to keep the nucleus of the side that won five in a row.
It’s fair to say that Brighton have established themselves at the top with a staggeringly good home record and solid but significantly less impressive away form.
They’ve won 10, drawn 5 and lost 5, scored 25 conceded 23. It’s still the second best away record in the league so perhaps it doesn’t inspire that much confidence.
The bookies have us at 15/8 for the win compared to the Seagull’s 11/8. If you’re brave enough to take a punt on the Wolves against the Championship leaders, these football betting tips might come in handy.
That said, a lot of their away matches are tight so we should be in the game. Sadly though, I expect their Championship wherewithal will win out.
Up The Wolves!
