Wolves in-form goalkeeper Matt murray, currently sitting top of the Actim goalkeeping standings hasn't got too many bad memories of this season so far.
So it makes it doubly painful that his two worst have come in matches against the team Wolves fans most want to beat - West Bromwich Albion.
The first, early in the season and with Mick McCarthy's side still bedding in could be said to have been an early blip from a team just becoming acquainted.
The second was far worse, coming at home in the FA Cup, and left Murray far more scarred than the first encounter.
Hurt doesn't even begin to describe our feelings,It did more than hurt me - I hated it," he told the E&S.
"I grew up in the area so I know how much it means to the fans and the club.
"With all the hype and the full house for that game it felt terrible. To get bossed like that for 90 minutes is not enjoyable to play in or watch."
"I have been at the club since I was nine and I know what this derby day is all about, so to put in a no-show was very disappointing. It is one of the few disappointments in an otherwise excellent season for us.
'In the two games so far they've given us a bit of a 'doing' and we've been disappointed not just in the results but the manner of the performances.
"As a group we haven`t performed, which is very rare this season.'
With another full house predicted tomorrow, Wolves will have 25,000 voices urging them on to gain revenge for the previous results.
But the loudest voice of all will be the one in their own heads reminding them of the pain of defeat, and the need to be at the very top of their game to end the day holding all the spoils.
