Newcastle v Wolves Live Stream
Newcastle will look to continue their return to form with victory over an inconsistent Wolves side today. Rafa Benitez’s side look to have turned things round having battered QPR 6-0 at Loftus Road midweek, with the side now looking like genuine promotion contenders.
Aitor Karanka’s side missed the chance to go top of the table as they went down 2-1 to the Lancashire outfit.
The defeat means ‘Boro have won just two of their last 8 games and they will need to address their form as the Championship moves into the business end of the season.
Speaking after the clash with Rovers, defender Ben Gibson was very honest admitting that his side got bullied at Ewood Park.
“A lot of us have got to take a long hard look at ourselves. We should never lose a game because we didn’t want it as much as the opposition and I don’t think we did,” Gibson told BBC Tees.
“We got bullied in a lot of areas on the pitch and we must be better.”
Despite their indifferent form of late, the Teessiders could return to the automatic promotion places with a win on Friday with the club currently level with second place Hull.
Wolves meanwhile will be full of confidence after beating another promotion chasing side, Derby County 2-1 in their last outing.
The win secured thanks to a brace from George Saville, the second of which came just four minutes from the end, moved the club up to 13th in the table, five points off the top 10.
Fans will be hoping that Saville can fill the shoes of former Wolves hot shot Benikie Afobe, who joined Premier League side Bournemouth in January.
While the club will hope to build on that victory they will have to do so with just a small fan backing on Friday.
Only 226 tickets have been sold for the game, a culmination of the steep £32 ticket charge set by the club, the fact that the game is televised and it is the longest away trip of the season.
Middlesbrough are predictably the favourites coming into the game and its difficult to see how Wolves can take all three points, considering that Kenny Jackett’s side have not won in their last four away trips.
That said, the odds of 8/13 on the Middlesbrough home win do not exactly set pulses racing, so it may be best to settle for the score draw, with the 1-1 correct scoreline offering considerable appeal at 6/1.
It may not be pretty but it should make for an intriguing match up between two sides who have realistic ambitions for promotion to the Premier League this season.
It all kicks off at the Riverside at 19:45.
