Wolves vs Huddersfield Town

Wolves have a good opportunity to consolidate their comfortable position in the Premier League’s mid-table as they host struggling Huddersfield on Sunday afternoon. Nine points might separate them in the table, but they’ve enjoyed differing fortunes before the international break: Wagner’s men got their first win of the season over Fulham and then picked up a creditable point against West Ham, while Wolves have lost three and drawn one of their last four games.

Wolves should be able to carry on the same course that has proved effective for them so far this season, but manager Nuno is in the unfamiliar position of having to tinker. Left back Jonny faces a long spell on the sidelines after getting injured while away with the Spanish national team, leaving them a little light after they sold reliable stalwart of their promotion, Barry Douglas, to Leeds. Ruben Vinagre is touted to move into the left wingback position, while on the other side Matt Doherty suffered a facial injury with Ireland and is a doubt for a return here.

Wingbacks aside, Wolves should be able to field their strongest eleven, which is fairly predictable given how little the manager rotates. Ryan Bennett, Conor Coady and Willy Boly should make up the excellent back three that has been instrumental in Wolves keeping the fifth best defensive record in the division, conceding eight goals fewer than Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United.

They failed to keep a clean sheet in each of their last four matches, but impressively conceded just once in the five games preceding this spell, and should hold strong against the side who have scored the least goals in the division, with just six from twelve games. Both teams not to score can be backed at 3/5 with BetVictor and can be extended to 11/10 with Bet365 for Wolves to win to nil.

Huddersfield might have picked up their first win of the season against Fulham a few weeks back, but they remain in the bottom three and need a lot more if they’re to drag themselves out of trouble. They’ve picked up just two points on the road this season, winning just three of their total 24 Premier League games on the road.

Wagner is likely to field a compact back five with a robust midfield featuring Aaron Mooy, Jonathan Hogg and Phil Billing in the centre. This is likely to leave Alex Pritchard and Steve Mounie feeding on scraps and isolated in the final third. They lack goalscorers at the best of times, so it’s no wonder that no player has scored more than one goal so far this season.

This approach invariably leaves their games as low-scoring affairs at both ends, with nine of their last eleven games featuring two goals or fewer. Their opponents have a similar record; they’re yet to score more than two goals this season, while only two of their 12 Premier League games has featured more than two goals. Under 2.5 goals can be backed at 4/6 with Betfair.
