thumbnail Hello,

Kenny Jackett's men are warm favourites to beat Chris Kiwomya's side in the Football League Trophy on Tuesday and our tipster expects the home side to win comfortably

Wolves will look to continue their current run of fine form when they take on Notts County in the Football League Trophy at Molineux on Tuesday night.

Kenny Jackett’s men have won nine of their last 10 matches in all competitions and can be backed at just 8/13 (1.62) with bet365 to book their place in the next round of the competition with victory on home soil.

In stark contrast to Wolves, Notts County have endured a miserable start to the campaign. Chris Kiwomya’s men have picked up just seven points from their opening 10 League One fixtures and are chalked up as a 4/1 (5.0) chance with bet365 to shock the hosts here. The draw is available at 3/1 (4.0) with the same firm.

Notts County will surely have been boosted by an impressive 4-0 home victory over Crewe Alexandra at the weekend but the trip to Molineux is likely to represent a significant step up in class for Kiwomya’s side.

Wolves have kept three successive clean sheets and Kenny Jackett’s men can be backed at a hugely tempting 15/8 (2.88) with bet365 to win to nil against a Notts County side still seeking their first away win of the campaign.

The 5/4 (2.25) quote from the same firm for Wolves to score in both halves also carries plenty of appeal, especially considering that Kenny Jackett’s side have scored an impressive 22 goals in their last 10 matches in all competitions.

Scottish international striker Leigh Griffiths has made a positive impression at Molineux since returning to the club from a successful loan spell at Hibernian last season, scoring seven goals in 10 appearances for Kenny Jackett’s men.

Griffiths is chalked up at just 15/4 (4.75) with bet365 to open the scoring here but it should be noted that the 23-year-old striker was left out of Wolves’ last Football League Trophy clash and, should Jackett opt to shuffle the pack again here, Griffiths may well be rested.

Instead, Icelandic striker Bjorn Sigurdarson may be chosen as the man to lead the line for Wolves so the 5/1 (6.0) quote for the 22-year-old front man to break the deadlock is excellent value here.

The juicy 15/8 (2.88) quote from bet365 for Wolves to win to nil should be snapped up eagerly by punters. Those seeking to back bigger prices should take the 5/1 (6.0) on offer from the same firm for Bjorn Sigurdarson to get the ball rolling for the home side with the opening goal of Tuesday’s clash.
