Wolves to pile more pressure on Carvalhal


After some brief respite in midweek, the Championship action is back this weekend, starting on Friday when leaders Wolves travel to hapless Sheffield Wednesday.

A goalless draw was all Wolves could manage against Sunderland last time out while Carlos Carvalhal is under the cosh at Hillsborough, having seen his side fail to win any of their last five.

It could be more misery for the Owls and punters should take advantage of the rare occurrence of Nuno Santo’s men being odds against at 11/10.

There are 10 3pm kick-offs to go at on Saturday and the game at the bottom between 21st-placed Bolton and basement side Burton is one that certainly catches the eye.

Neither are exactly flush with resources, with both Phil Parkinson and Nigel Clough forced to work hard to try and mould teams capable of competing.

On current form it is Parkinson who is doing the better of the two and 1/1 looks a solid price against a team who have won once since September.

Finally, at 5:30pm on Saturday, Cardiff City welcome Hull FC to south Wales in a game that looks easier on paper than it will be on grass.

Neil Warnock’s men have won their last three at home and their record in the Welsh capital makes them difficult to look past.

But we all love a ‘new manager bounce’ and Nigel Adkins made a winning start to his time in charge of the Tigers against Brentford last weekend.

The Bluebirds should have enough although it is unlikely to be as easy as their odds-on price suggests so it might be worth checking out the 5/2 on offer for a home win and both to score.
