Wolves v Blackburn Tip

9th Mar 2012 | Football

Yakubu: 13 goals this season

These two team start the day level on points, with Blackburn the right side of the dreaded dotted line courtesy only of a superior goal difference. But if the situation has seemed fraught for Steve Kean all season, Terry Connor looks like he’s now in an even worse spot having been thrown in at the deep end.

This will be the first game at Molineux since Mick McCarthy was sacked, only to be replaced by his inexperienced number two. Wolves’ last home game was a nightmare 5-1 defeat to local rivals West Brom. The last away fixture was no better; the 5-0 hammering to Fulham coming only last Sunday. Anyone watching that match at Craven Cottage would surely have come away thinking that Wolves are the team you really want to be playing right now.

As if things couldn’t get any worse, captain Roger Johnson then showed up on Monday ‘unfit to train properly’ after reportedly arriving at work still smelling of alcohol. He had been recently dropped by ‘TC’ and has now been slammed with a club fine.

In comparison, the picture is looking quite rosy for Rovers! I think this is a game they can win at best odds of 11/5 with PaddyPower. Kean’s side fought back well to draw 1-1 with Aston Villa last weekend. David Dunn grabbed a late equaliser off the bench and having recently recovered from injury he will be pushing hard for a start this time round.

Blackburn can draw on an excellent record at Molineux that includes a vital victory on the last day of last season. They have now only lost one of their last nine visits to the ground (W4, D4, L1). With the Wolves fans liable to turn on their own players or the board if things are going badly, Rovers can take advantage of playing away this week.

Selhurst Set For Title Deciders

Palace have won five in a row and now welcome Manchester City and Liverpool to their intimidating ground in consecutive weeks.

Heavyweights Slug It Out in Lisbon

The Champions League semi-final first legs ended 0-0 and 1-0. We should expect a similarly tentative opening exchange between Benfica and Juventus.

La Liga Leaders Can Claim Advantage

Chelsea lost 3-1 away to PSG in the last round and still progressed so a narrow defeat in Spain may be verging on acceptable to Mourinho.

Everton Starting To Flag

In their last six matches Everton have conceded 17.6 shots per game on average. Those numbers suggest a draw is more likely than a home win.

Snodgrass Norwich’s Main Man

Averages 2.4 shots per game and a goal scoring threat especially if he reprises the more central attacking role he fulfilled against Fulham last week.

First Goalscorer Special
