Wolves Hungry for Win Against Wigan
Im frothing at the mouth for our first Premier League win of the season and it may come on our road trip tomorrow at Wigan.
Wigan stunned the football world in week one with a decisive win over top six candidate Aston Villa. The Athletics finished last season in 11th place four points above Blackburn, Portsmouth, and Bolton, and 11points out from relegation.
Roberto Martinez holds the reins for the Premiership club and has them believing the sky is the limit. Still the losses of Wilson Palacios, Emile Heskey, and Antonio Valencia will play a factor in the teams progress this season.
The Wolves come into DW Stadium ripped apart by injuries to Sylvan Ebanks Blake, Kevin Doyal, Michael Kightly, Kevin Foley, and other contributors to the squad. The the team line up has not been announced I have to believe that Sam Vokes will get the nod to start.
A 2-0 loss to West Ham has left a bitter taste in the mouth of all Wolves, fans and players alike. So look for the Wolves to come out strong and to put a fight up against the "tree loving" Wiganites, despite the key losses mentioned above.
If Wigan come out and play as they did in a Villa look for the Wolves to be 0-2-0 on the season but a draw could be in the cards for the old gold side.
Players to Watch-
Sam Vokes, should he start, will want to prove to the Gaffer that he has what it takes to be more than a super sub.
Milijas will also be an intriguing watch as he was in game 1.
Andy Keough will be starting again and if he wants to show his worth he needs to burry one in the back of the net to make up for his early miss in game 1.
Official Prediction- Wolves lose 3-1
