Wolves vs Sheffield Wednesday
Date: Saturday, 26th November 2016
Kick off at 15:00 UK Time
Venue: Molineux Stadium, Wolverhampton
Paul Lambert has been charged with trying to change Wolves’ fortunes as the new manager will try and steer the club up the table. Lambert was appointed at the beginning of this month and has overseen one game which ended 0-0 against Preston. This match will be his first in charge at home and he is sure to receive a good reception. What is key in this match is the fans getting behind their team.
Wolves have endured a torrid season so far with just 4 wins all season and no wins from their last six matches. At home their last win came two months ago and they have lost 3 games in a row.
Sheffield Wednesday are 9th however their recent form has been poor where they haven’t won a game in a month over 3 matches. We have to go back 5 weeks to witness a win on the road and from a possible 27 points away from home they have won just 10 or 36%.
Wolves vs Sheffield Wednesday: Head to Head Stats

Wolves vs Sheffield Wednesday: Prediction
Wolves have an advantage here with a new manager and if he has been able to connect with the players in the dressing room then Wolves could well play this match like a cup final. We will take that risk over a Sheffield team who are in poor form anyway. Small stakes on Helder Costa to score any time, he got on the score sheet in Wolves last home game.
