Recent Form


Both teams have seriously struggled in the league this season, which is evident by their league positions. ​

Wolves stole a point against Palace last week, with a last gasp Jota goal, which would have done a lot to boost their morale. A penalty shoot out win over Reading in the Carabao Cup is also a plus. 

Wolverhampton Wanderers v Reading FC - Carabao Cup Third Round

​Watford's thumping at the Etihad would have seriously damaged confidence, but a 2-1 win over Swansea in the cup will have given them a bit of a lift.

Wolves Watford
Wolves 1-1 (4-2) Reading (25/9) Watford 2-1 Swansea (24/9)
Palace 1-1 Wolves (22/9) Man City 8-0 Watford (21/9)
Wolves 0-1 Braga (19/9) Watford 2-2 Arsenal (15/9)
Wolves 2-5 Chelsea (14/9) Newcastle 1-1 Watford (31/8)
Everton 3-2 Wolves (1/9) Watford 3-0 Coventry (27/8)

Prediction


Both teams will be desperate for the three points, but Wolves will have the huge advantage of playing in front of their home crowd.

As well as that, last week's result against City would have done no good for Watford's confidence, whilst Wolves are coming off the back of two good results. Therefore, Wolves should come out with the crucial victory here.

Prediction: Wolves 3-1 Watford​
