7/5 Wolves to Finish Bottom of the Premier League


24 March 2012 by Barrie | Football Betting Expert


Out-of-form Wolverhampton Wanderers are 7/5 favourites to finish bottom of the 2011/12 Premier League with bookmaker’s Bet365.

The Black Country side are sitting bottom of the Premier League heading into the final 9 games of the season and have conceded 19 goals in their last 5 games, picking up just 1 point in the process.

Following the sacking of Mick McCarthy, inexperienced manager Terry Connor has taken over the duties as caretaker manager for the remainder of the season.

Under Connor’s stewardship, Wolves picked up a 2-2 draw at Newcastle in this first game in charge, before being thrashed 5-0 at Fulham, 2-0 at home by Blackburn and 5-0 at home by Manchester United.

Wolves travel to Norwich City today, 3 points and 15 goals from safety, currently occupied by Queens Park Rangers in 16th place.

Terry Connor’s side still have to host both Arsenal and Manchester City before the season is out and finish the season with a trip to Wigan Athletic; the team currently above Wolves on goal difference.

Despite failing to score in their last 3 games, Wolves’ weakest part of their team has been the defence. Wayne Hennessey between the posts has conceded a league high 63 goals and been forced into making the most saves through 29 games.

The pressure put onto the opposition has been little to non-existent in recent games, as has the protection in front of the back four. Captain Roger Johnson has yet to play under Connor following a training ground incident; all part of the shambles that is currently taking place at Molineux.
