Wounded Wolves are still looking for their first win under manager Dean Saunders as they prepare to take on high-flying Watford at Molineux on Friday night. The televised Championship match pits together two teams at contrasting ends of the table, with Wolves fighting for their lives at the bottom and Watford in contention for a automatic promotion spot.
Wolves are really suffering at the moment, with the Midlands club without a win in a staggering 11 league games. Their last victory dates back to before Christmas and the weekend's defeat to Cardiff saw them fall into the drop zone as they now face up to the very real prospect of a second successive relegation.
Meanwhile Watford moved up to second in the table after beating Derby on Saturday. Manager Gianfranco Zola has worked wonders since his arrival at Vicarage Road and another win on Friday will close the gap between the Hornets and league leaders Cardiff to just five points.
Watford, who are currently on a three game winning streak, head to the Midlands as the 5/4 favourites with Betfred. Seven wins in nine makes them the form team in the league and if they can carry on their superb run then top spot could be in reach, although an automatic promotion spot remains the priority. The visitors look a decent bet at 8/1 to come away with a 2-1 win, as they did went he sides met at Vicarage Road earlier in the season. Meanwhile a 2-0 scoreline is available at a tempting 10/1.
Wolves have yet to taste victory since Saunders replaced Stale Solbakken at the beginning of January, taking a pitiful four points from eight matches. In total they have failed to win in 11 Championship games. Since the end of September their home form has been nothing sort of atrocious, with just the single win in their last 13 matches at Molineux. It would take a bold better to back them against in-form Watford but they can be found at 7/4 to claim an invaluable three points and 7/1 to win 1-0. Alternatively a draw could be the way to go at 9/4.
Watford have opened the scoring in their last four games and will look to get off to an early start on Friday. Star striker Matej Vydra has been in stunning form this season with 20 goals to his name so far, making him an attractive bet at 7/2 favourite in the first goalscorer market, while Troy Deeney and Alex Geijo are worth considering at 4/1 and 6/1 respectively. Alternatively Wolves' 10-goal top scorer Sylvan Ebanks-Blake is available at 7/1 to open the scoring and 15/8 anytime in the latest betting with Betfred Bookmakers.
