The time has come for Wolves to make performance a secondary concern behind getting some points on the board. Last weekend, a poor home performance against Bolton was nearly rescued with a late flurry of goals. Nevertheless, with a slight gap opening between the main pack and the bottom two, Wolves must see this as an opportunity to grab some points to show for their November endeavours.
Blackpool have looked better on the road than they have at home so far this year, however this is the sort of fixture that Ian Holloway will have pinpointed for crucial points in their bid for Premier League survival. Goalkeeper Matt Gilks has been ruled out for three months with a cracked knee-cap, but Holloway is able to call on World Cup goalkeeping maverick Richard Kingston as he makes his third appearance of the season.
Wolves know points are mandatory, Ian Holloway will feel a defeat here will undo much of Blackpool’s recent good work. Expect a draw- neither manager would be totally satisfied but at this stage both will be aware of the need for point accumulation.
