Fortunately, scoring goals away from the barren wasteland that is Molineux hasn’t been a problem.
But unfortunately, letting them in has been.
Our last cleansheet was at the Mad Stad at the start of February and we didn’t even win. You can guess the score if you can’t remember it.
No fair really. Why do all these other teams get to escape the banquet of boredom?
For added misery this fixture will act as another timely reminder of our team’s demise, with Afobe and Sako both resplendent in last season’s victory at the City Ground.
Roll on the summer.
The Trees have been hand holding Wolves in the middle third of the table for most of the season and look to be treading water.
It seemed a touch harsh to give Dougie Freedman the push, given the various issues he had to contend with – injuries, embargoes, etc.
Paul Williams is in temporary charge until the end of the season and it will be interesting to see who they end up with. Maybe they’ll be one of the clubs rivaling Rotherham for Neil Warnock’s services? They probably should be.
Britt Assombalonga is close to regaining full fitness and he’ll be an asset for them if he gets a good pre-season under his belt before the next campaign.
Their home form reads won 7, drawn 7, lost 8, scored 24, conceded 25 so it’s textbook inconsistency. Like looking in a mirror.
Kenny might as well keep experimenting, but realistically three or four new bodies are needed in the attacking third to give us any hope for next season.
Here’s eleven players, but who knows whether any or all of them will play? Does anyone even care? It’s tough to feel enthusiastic about the team whoever gets a game at present.
Deslandes, Hunte and Enobakhare are all worth a start, but I’d definitely like to see Jed Wallace get a mini run in these two remaining fixtures. He was bright in his cameo last weekend.
Dave Edwards was, save for one bad miss, anonymous against Rotherham, but probably remains our greatest goal threat as the forwards continue to starve.
Le Fondre, Siggy, Mason – none of them are good enough. Clear out and start again.
The most likely outcome is probably a draw, so that’s what I’m going with.
And yeah, what else is there to say?
Up The Wolves!
