Wolves v Norwich City Preview

Wolves v Norwich City Preview

After the razzmatazz of witnessing the deluge of plastic glory hunters and 'half scarfs' converging on Carrow Road last weekend, it will be refreshing to return to the normality of two solid clubs battling it out for points on Sunday.

I love the sound bites coming from Farke and his team, we have to remain positive and it will be great if firstly we can find another win and even more importantly, string some together.

The lads defended really well against Liverpool and were turned other by a quality finish aided by a dodgy push. As usual, we had good chances to score and alter the outcome of the game.

Defeat to Liverpool on Saturday means it's 18 points from 26 games in the Premier League this season. Whilst many at this stage believe we are playing only for pride for the remainder of this league season, I refuse to run with this mindset. It would smell of defeatism which is simply not a good state of mind for a true competitor.

Norwich head to Wolves on Sunday with City having lost 2-1 in the reverse fixture in December, after taking the lead through one of our own, Todd Cantwell.

My memories and feelings about that game have been repeated a few times this season. A great start, failure to take full advantage and extend the lead followed by a couple of mistakes and/or lapses in concentration.

I do feel Wolves demonstrated extra class in holding their nerve and executing Premier League quality in two clinical finishes. They were a changed side from the first whistle at the start of the second half. Squad wise, the Canaries will be in better shape this time, so it's game on!

One of my biggest memories of visiting Molineux has to be the stress endured and mixed emotion encountered from losing a game of football and immediately celebrating getting through to the Championship play-off final.

1st May 2002, losing 1-0 to a Kevin Cooper strike in the 76th minute in front of 27,418 revved up fans. Thankfully, it wasn’t enough to reverse the earlier encounter winning 3-1 on the 29th April with goals from Mark Rivers and two late, late goals from Paul McVeigh and Malky Mackay.

Can Wolves push for a top-five finish? They currently sit in eighth on 36 points, just four points from Spurs in fifth. They have, however, only managed to win one game in their last six league attempts. In fact, their last nine outings have only produced the one league victory which was against Southampton.

They have brought a halt to their poor recent form winning 4-0 against Espanyol this week.

I’m going to be brave, we are due a decent win, 3-1... bring it on.
