Wolves went top of the Championship last weekend for the first time since being promoted as champions under Mick McCarthy in 2009. With a score of 2-0 against Aston Villa, total 20 shots and overall 55% ball possession, they are ready to do whatever it takes in order to stay at number one.
Since losing at Derby on 15 August, Preston have gone unbeaten in nine games, although they have drawn three of the last four.Preston is in the 5th place only 5 points below Wolves. Last weekend they played against Fulham. Although at half time they had a lead of 0-2, Fulham with a penalty at 74′ and a last minute goal at 96′ secured a point.
Diogo Jota has scored six goals in his last seven league matches for Wolves, including three in his last four at Molineux.From the other side,Preston has scored just three goals in their last six league meetings with Wolves.Wolves has the momentum, they have the motivation and most probably they will win.
Our prediction is Wolves to win with handicap (-0.5).
