Kenny Jackett's men have made an impressive start to their League One campaign and Willie Duncan expects a comfortable victory for the home side at Molineux on Friday eveningLeague One title favourites Wolverhampton Wanderers have made a solid start to the season and Kenny Jackett’s side will be eager to maintain their fine league form when they play host to Crawley Town.
Wolves have collected seven points from a possible nine thus far this term and are chalked up as 4/5 (1.80) favourites with BetVictor to claim another three with victory at Molineux.
Crawley are rated as a 17/5 (4.40) chance with BetVictor to pick up their first away win of the campaign while the draw is available at 27/10 (3.70) with the same firm.
If Richard Barker’s men are to take anything from this contest, there is no doubt that they will need to defend better than they have done previously this term.
The Reds have conceded 12 goals in just four matches in all competitions so far this season and, should they exhibit such defensive frailty at Molineux then Wolves are more than capable of taking advantage.
Scotland international striker Leigh Griffiths, who scored 28 goals in 42 appearances for Hibernian during a successful loan spell with the Scottish Premiership club last season, is likely to lead the line for Jackett’s side on Friday night and will be keen to get amongst the goals.
The 22-year-old striker scored twice in Wolves’ 4-0 victory over Gillingham at Molineux two weeks ago and he can be backed at 16/5 (4.20) with BetVictor to open the scoring against Crawley on Friday night.
Another threat to the Reds’ chances of securing a positive result is in-form French midfielder Bakary Sako.
Sako has scored in each of his last two appearances for Wolves and is chalked up at an appealing 19/4 (5.75) to break the deadlock on Friday while the same firm offer a tempting 7/5 (2.40) that Sako nets at any time.
Crawley have scored nine goals in four matches so it promises to be an entertaining clash at Molineux and so the 31/40 (1.78) quote from BetVictor for both teams to score is tempting here.
However, Wolves, on home soil, should prove too strong for the Reds and punters should snap up BetVictor’s generous 4/5 (1.80) quote for Kenny Jackett's side to win on Friday. The 19/4 (5.75) quote from the same firm for Sako to break the deadlock is the value play in this one.
