Wolverhampton Wanderers v Newcastle United: Surging Wolves on the up

12:57, 08 Feb 2019

Wolverhampton Wanderers has been one of the most exciting surprise packages in this season's Premier League. They are credible contenders for a place in European competitions in the coming season. Newcastle United, on the other hand, have been flirting with relegation all season. Going into this match the Wolves will feel confident that they can add Newcastle's scalp to an impressive record of teams which have come to the Molineux Stadium and left with wounds to lick.

Neither of the two has a prolific scoring pedigree and this is certain to be yet another tight affair. Wolves won the opposite fixture at St. James' Park 2-1 in December and should have the mettle to grind out another win at home.

Their Mexican striker Raul Jimenez has been scoring more consistently in recent matches and is likely to be the difference in the well-matched squads. Newcastle, fresh from signing their club record acquisition in the form of Raul Jimenez, and even upending no less opponents than the reigning champions a couple of weeks before this fixture, will however feel that they have more than a good chance of coming out with the spoils.
