Manager Mick McCarthy returns to the club that he was in charge of for six years from 2006 to 2012 and he probably knows, just like the rest of us, that this time a draw away is not good enough.

Other results could go in our favour because Cardiff City in seventh place are at home to fifth placed Derby County and Sheffield Wednesday who are just above us, have to travel to Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield. But this will count for nothing if we do not win ourselves tomorrow afternoon!

Ipswich lie in fifth place in the Sky Bet Championship away table and that is after a number of recent humbling defeats on our travels so overall our away form is still pretty good.

Wolves are in 16th place in the home form table, which suggests that if we can read anything at all into statistics then Town have more than a reasonable chance of success.

Much will depend I suspect on who the manager picks? I expect the defence will be the same old but it is in midfield where my interest lies. Will he play defensively minded Douglas and Skuse or opt instead to include Kevin Bru and Luke Hyam?

I can only hope he has learned something from that Rotherham home defeat, which could have closed the curtain on our season.

He surely has to be more attack-minded this time and he will have impact players on the bench as well with David McGoldrick and Teddy Bishop back in the frame.

It could be argued that by not being able to play Daryl Murphy due to injury, he may opt for a more attacking line-up and surely Liam Feeney and perhaps too Kevin Foley might start?

The absence of Murphy might ensure we play the ball on the floor a bit more – although our manager may be tempted to include in our attack Luke Varney and then it would be back to basics again.

Only he can decide what is his best line-up to get us all three points at Molineux tomorrow afternoon but with another strong travelling army of supporters, he would surely hope to get them onside with a good performance and three points in the bag.

Our last two encounters with Wolves have ended in draws but we will hope to reverse that trend, otherwise our season is effectively over and we simply cannot rely on other results going our way all the time when we slip up.

I think we might sneak a narrow victory by the odd goal and if we succeed, then our small hope gets a smidgen bigger I guess.

  • Please,please attack us, because we are very good on the counter attack, don’t fall into the trap of what is reported by some Wolves “fans”, they would moan if we were top of the premiership, in the champions league final, in the final of the FACup but lost the final of the league cup, their are a lot of glory hunters at the Wolves who haven’t the bottle to support their club in times of trouble!
