Home win for Wolverhampton against Stoke

The “Wolves” hosts the team of Stoke City on Molineux in a match from the sixteenth round of the English Premier League.

For “Wolves” this is an excellent opportunity to strike back after the loss they suffered from Manchester United in the last round. Moreover they need the whole three points in their fight to stay in the Premier League for the next season.

Right now the team is dangerously close to the relegation zone – just two points ahead of the team holding the eighteenth place – Wigan.

In turn, Stoke is going great in the last few rounds and surprised many teams ranked above the eighth place in the current ranking. They won against the teams like Tottenham and Everton. However, the good matches and wins came after a period of a crisis when they had seen painful losses in the middle of the season.

Overall, it could be said Stoke is a team which could surprise any of the leaders, but no one should be surprised if Stoke lose against teams from the bottom of the table.

To achieve the needed victory Wolves needs goals, but right now everyone on the team rely for that on Steven Fletcher, who is team’s top shooter. So far, he has six goals in only ten games.

Everyone knows that the big goal for the team this season is staying in the league and despite modest selection the “Wolves” have good chance to achieve it. It is crucial for them to win their matches at home and even more their matches at home versus teams like Stoke.

I believe that the hosts’ desire and their motivation will outweigh the higher class of visiting team. The question is whether the Wolves will be able to achieve the victory and take all three points or will manage to get only the draw.

Well, the odds for a home win are good enough, so my bet will be for a “Wolves'” win today.
