Only a few weeks ago Wolverhampton Wanderers were as low as 7/1 to be relegated into League One at the end of the season, however a series of impressive results have seen them slip to 40/1 and they are looking good for another stay in the Championship.
Back-to-back wins over Rotherham United, Brentford and Fulham have lifted Paul Lambert’s men five points clear of the bottom three and whilst this may not be a huge cause for celebration in itself, given the side’s recent form we don’t believe that they are in any real danger of making the drop.
That said, there is little room for complacency and Wolves need to build on this recent upturn in fortunes. They can make a start by seeing off Cardiff City at Molineux on Saturday and that is exactly what we expect them to do.
Cardiff City have been quietly plodding along since the start of the season, the side far enough away from the relegation zone to be involved in any possible relegation battle and no threat whatsoever to the sides in the play-off places. This has been the case for much of the campaign thanks to their inconsistent performances and we’re less than optimistic about their chances of managing anything from their clash with much-improved Wolves.
The Bluebirds have been pretty impressive away from home of late with wins over Derby County and Leeds United last month, however they have collected just a single point from their last two games on the road and we cannot make a case for them at Milieux this weekend.
