Wolves won't come and sit back

Wolves have been eating up ground on those ahead of them in the league in recent weeks. They have not just been scraping wins either but have trounced Fulham, Rotherham and Huddersfield while AFCB have been hitting the nose dive button. Still, when Wolves have come up against the better sides they have found it harder going and the Cherries have to make home advantage count in this encounter.

Bakery Sako was in fine form against Fulham and Rotherham and he is likely to be the player that gives the Cherries the most work at the back. He was great in the reverse fixture at Molineux and while he did not get many shots off that day he was a constant threat. Another player who will have a point to prove is Rijav Van La Parra who was running the show when the teams last met, but the winger unluckily got his marching orders that day and AFCB went on to win the game. The Cherries did not have to face Benik Afobe back in December, but it is more likely that the striker will be available for this fixture, but they have also brought in Kevin Doyle as well. So Wolves have a good strike force and may not need to flood the midfield.

The stakes will be pretty high for both teams in this fixture and I hope that plays into the Cherries hands at home because Wolves won't want to sit back. It's not in Wolves' nature to do that anyway. They are a good passing side and I expect an exciting end-to-end game.

Whatever fire power that Wolves put out at Dean Court, Tommy Elphick has already said it is important that the Cherries have to think about their game and getting that right. Keeping control of the game and making good decisions is something that Eddie Howe has asked for and if the players can start managing the game better it could be an important week for the Cherries. Enjoy the game and get behind the lads.
