Wolves vs QPR
Date: Saturday, 31st December, 2016
Kick-off: 15:00 UK
Venue: Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton.
The spirits are really high at Wolverhampton Wanderers after a brilliant comeback win against Bristol City on the Boxing Day. They were trailing 2-1 at half-time, thanks to an inspired performance from Paul Lambert’s men to overturn the result to a 3-2 men. This put them on a two match winning streak and the second time this season that they are winning matches in a row. Wolves are still in the bottom half of the table, at 15th with 8 point distance from the relegation zone.
QPR suffered their 6th successive defeat in the league after the 3-0 loss at Brighton. The Rangers are a sinking ship and stay 3 points outside the relegation zone. There is hardly any positives from the way they play at the moment and need swift improvements in all departments. Also, they haven’t scored in any of their last 4 matches.

Also, keep an eye on young Portuguese striker Ivan Cavaleiro, who is in some fire touch and scored in the last two games for Wolves. He can be backed to score any-time during the match at the odds of
