Middlesbrough will hope to get back to the Premier League at the first attempt having been relegated last season as they face a Wolves outfit looking to mount a serious promotion campaign having spent a few years in the Championship without really making a serious impact.
With Paul Lambert leaving the club in May, Wolves now have the beautifully named and former Porto manager Nuno Espírito Santo at the helm.
The result was Aitor Karanka’s side second defeat in three games and the first time since March 2014 they have gone three games without second.
Their lack of goals has left the manager bemused with the former Real Madrid coach telling reporters post-game “It’s difficult to understand when we have good players up front. The way we were scoring at the beginning of the season I’m sure we will score again. When you have players like we have on the pitch you always think you will score.
“But to go three games without scoring shows something is wrong. It is not normal with our players so I have to study and work on it for us to score again.”
Despite their poor recent form, ‘Boro remain very much in the mix at the top and lie just three points behind second place Birmingham and seven points off leaders, Brighton, conversely more dropped points could see them slip out of the top 6 with Derby and Cardiff lurking ominously behind them.
Wolves meanwhile are also in the midst of a slump. The club have dropped out of the top ten having lost back to back games at Derby and Brentford.
The midweek defeat to Brentford was in particular hard to take as the Bees had lost three of their previous four games prior to their visit to Molineux
Despite sitting 12th in the table, Wolves are still not too far off the pace with just 6 points separating them from ‘Boro.
Wolves won this fixture 2-0 last season but have lost each of their last two clashes with Middlesbrough including a 3-0 defeat in the League up in September.
In the other big clash of the day third placed Reading make the trip to West London to take on Fulham, with the Royals having suffered defeat in the league only once in their last eleven matches.
Kit Symon’s Cottagers are making slow progress in the league, having drawn their last three games, and will surely face a difficult game against Steve Clarke’s in form side.
