Wolves v Blackburn Tip

Yakubu: 13 goals this season
1pt Blackburn to win 11/5 with Paddypower Place Bet

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.
