Wolves Face A Tough Plymouth Test

Wolves Face A Tough Plymouth Test

If Wolves have any serious aspirations on making a Play-off place then they really must sort their home form out, tomorrow we entertain improving Plymouth Argyle which is by no means an easy game. Our home form has been a major worry most of the season, and with only two home wins since early November it has to start picking up and quickly.

Plymouth are no mugs and have been in fantastic form until this midweek after a 2-1 defeat against West Brom, but reports suggest the way they played they were very unlucky to lose the game. Manager Ian Holloway has strengthened his squad well and has got some power and pace in the side, the likes of Barry Hayles, Akos Busaky, Lilian Nalas and newly recruited loan star Scott Sinclair are ones to watch out for, and those players could still help push Plymouth towards a Play-off place.

Mick McCarthy`s men got the result they craved for on Tuesday after a disastrous FA Cup weekend, they came away from Carrow Road with a surprise 1-0 victory but it proved to be a costly one as Gary Breen and Jackie McNamara both got red cards and will miss this fixture. Rob Edwards and Jamie Clapham will replace the suspended pair, we are not sure if McCarthy will continue with the 4-5-1 formation but if he does change you could see Olofinajana sitting out of the midfield in replacement for either Jay Bothroyd or Stephen Ward to partner Andy Keogh.

The last time these two met was in on the opening day of the season, the score ended 1-1 with Kevin O Connor scoring a second half equaliser.
