The good news is this can’t possibly be any worse than Saturday.
Even if we get well and truly roasted the entertainment value alone will make it a marked improvement on the weekend’s atrocities.
The bad news is it could be pretty unpleasant if Wolves don’t find their mojo.
Huddersfield still need one more victory to be mathematically certain of a play-off position and after getting blasted by fellow promotion chasers Fulham they’ll want to get that monkey off their back sooner rather than later.
Perversely though, their eagerness could play into our hands.
I’m looking forward to seeing David Wagner’s team up close and personal. I didn’t go to the reverse fixture earlier in the season but I’ve seen them a few times on the TV and been impressed.
They’ve got good energy, bundles of creativity and that all important explosive pace in the final third.
Wagner has made folly of the idea you need experience to be successful in the Championship. Both he and most of his players are learning on the job and going along nicely.
The German has coaxed something like consistency out of Rajiv van La Parra, which itself is commendable. How he acquits himself tomorrow will be very interesting. I always thought he was useful despite blowing hot and cold.
Australian midfielder Aaron Mooy has also been getting rave reviews and he’s another I’ll be keeping a watchful eye on. He’s currently on loan from Manchester City and a host of clubs will be sniffing around in the summer.
Paul Lambert has already declared his intention to ring the changes so who knows what that might mean for the starting lineup?
The above is just one idea based on the assumption that Costa and Doherty are out injured and Enobakhare is back in contention.
Now Dominic Iorfa has had a stretch on the sidelines, maybe he can come back in and show some of the form that made him a standout in his early appearances for the club?
I’d play him and Marshall as the full-backs to give us some proper width and allow Weimann and Cavaleiro to drift inside. Price and Coady holding.
I don’t remember reading about an injury to Bright but I think he’s the exact type of player we missed on Saturday. Someone who can introduce fluidity to an otherwise pedestrian performance.
I predict defeat, but hopefully one that offers glimpses of individual potential for next season.
Like it or not, we will still have this nucleus of players to work with, so Paul Lambert has to find winning combinations and players who can step up and perform consistently next time.
Up The Wolves!
