      Team news from Wolves vs Preston

      Team news from Wolves vs Preston


      Wolves striker Carl Cort will be forced to sit out the home clash with Preston as he starts a three-game suspension.
      Cort was sent off during the 1-0 midweek win over Ipswich.
      Lewis Gobern is set to miss out once again as he continues his recovery from a groin strain, while Leon Clarke remains sidelined by an ankle problem.
      Central defender Gabor Gyepes and right-back Jackie McNamara remain short of full fitness following surgery to repair cruciate knee ligament injuries.

      Preston manager Paul Simpson will be without skipper Graham Alexander for the trip.
      The right-back was sent off in the 2-0 defeat at Norwich in midweek and North End were unable to appeal against the decision, so the Scotland international starts a three-match ban.
      Midfielder Brian O'Neil, who has yet to feature this season because of a knee injury, could be pressed into action but a question mark remains over striker Danny Dichio (hip).
      Winger Lewis Neal (ankle) could come into contention but Simpson still has a long injury list, with Joe Anyinsah (thigh) also sidelined.
      Adam Nowland and Brett Ormerod are both recovering from broken legs and Youl Mawene, Callum Davidson and Andy Smith (all knee) are also out long-term.

      Simpson said: "We know it's going to be tough but if we go there and make it as hard as possible for Wolves in the opening stages of the game, their fans are not easy as a home player to play in front of. We've got to make it as difficult for them as possible and make the home crowd work to our advantage."


      Wolves striker Carl Cort starts a three-game ban and he may be replaced by Leon Clarke.
      Left-back Lee Naylor has recovered from illness, but Lewis Gobern is set to miss out once again as he continues his recovery from a groin strain.

      Preston are without skipper Graham Alexander who starts a three-game ban.
      Midfielder Brian O'Neil may play despite a knee injury, while Danny Dichio (hip) and Lewis Neal (ankle) are both doubtful for the match.

      The two sources seem to disagree if Leon Clarke will play. Some can shed some light on this?

      All in all seems that 2.10 @ Betfair on Wolves is a very good price against injury ridden Preston.


        Under 2.5 is another obvious pick for this match. The odds arent great though, 1.67 on betfair. But both teams hvane been poor up front. Preston havent scored and Wolves of scored 1 goal in both matches.


          I think is a good match to pick. Preston with such large list of injuries it will be difficult to pose some treat to Wolves although one of their main striker will not appear in the match and their defender too.

          1 is a good bet put also X is a posibility.

          I want to see more news about this match before to take a decision.

          Especially line ups and weather conditions if anyone can post it here tomorrow

          Sry for my english but I'm from Romania


            Can someone give me some information about Sunderland Afc - Plymouth Argyle ?


              Coca Cola Football League Championship

              <U>Colchester United FC vs. Barnsley FC</U>

              Colchester suffered their second consecutive defeat on Tuesday having lost 0-1 to a medicore Plymouth side. The U's are clearly yet to solve their problems up front, with Jamie Cureton, Richard Garcia and Chris Iwelumo not being able to convert. The likes of Kem Izzet and Pat Baldwin also seem to struggle at this level, and veteran skipper Karl Duguid has not been the same since his injury. Bad luck is no excuse for two consecutive defeats. Perhaps lack of squad depth and quality are better explanations.

              New manager Geraint Williams knows that he has to go shopping, but unfortunately he has one of the league's tightest budgets. I reckon that Colchester are in need of a total makeover, including at least two wingers, a left back, a center back and most importantly a decent striker. All positions require immediate improvements if Colchester are to survive this season.

              On the visitor side we have Barnsley. The Tykes' ability to come back from 2 goals behind in order to defeat Hull City 2-3 at the KC Stadium demonstrates, in my view, two key points:

              A) This young, pacey and well-balanced side has both the ability and the motivation to avoid relegation this season, and I dare to say - achieve even more than that. Barnsley's excellent midfield, led by McIndoe, Howard and Devaney, led the team to victory on Tuesday, and I believe we haven't seen the last of them. Manager Andy Ritchie has just completed the signing of Irish international Colin Healy, which I think would prove a major, major boost for Barnsley this season as soon as he is match fit. Could prove a decent replacement for Stephen McPhail. The attacking pair is decent and productive as well, with Richards and Hayes getting both on the scoresheet on Tuesday. Still, the need for a higher-quality striker is always there.

              B) In addition to the aforementioned quality, the Tykes show high mental resilience and distinctive character, both of which are necessary ingredients for a successful English Championship campaign. There is simply no other way to explain the team's complete control of the game during the second half. I suppose the non-playing staff should be credited as well for encouraging the players during the break. Bear in mind the fact that this is the second consecutive match in which Barnsley's performance significantly improves during the second half.

              Last season, Colchester United had to wait until the third fixture in order to pick their first win. They played at home, and their opponents were... Barnsley FC. This time, however, I'll go with Barnsley, as beating the current Colchester side would prove an easier task than beating Hull City. Just in case, I choose to take the draw-no-bet option as the price offered still represents value. High stakes.


                Preston has only four defenders available for this match and this is their second away match in a Wolves has some advantages



                  Are you sure you are a Wednesday fan?

                  You must be the only one who has ever had anything nice to say about Barnsley!

                      Haha, possibly.
                      It's a good bet, though.


                        Agree with Rony on playing 1x on wolves. Wolves definitely look the better team to claim a win with the state of Preston's team, however i'm a little cautious abt the attacking side of the Wolves team. They seem to be having some problems with scoring, coupled with the injuries n suspensions to their front men, playing 1x wld seem a better option until they start having more fluidity.

                        An alternative would be probably to have a small cover punt on correct score 0-0 or wolves to win to nil. Preston wld probably try to play for a pt and to frustrate Wolves, n we all know that the Wolves fans do turn on their own players' backs when they are not performing. I have read that Preston were outplayed in their previous 2 games, however i do rate Norwich quite highly in front of their own fans so the 2-0 defeat was not a surprise. However the 0-0 draw with Sheffield Wed typically shows how Preston is doing now, rather toothless in attack n i guess more inclined to playing not to lose than to win.

                        Any opinions or info to my post would be deeply appreciated!!!


                          I would advise caution on taking cardiff over coventry to the guy who was asking about it. Cardiff have started well, a good win at barnsley and a draw with west brom, but don't underestimate coventry. They looked good in beating sunderland and hit the woodwork against Southampton and had chances. I think few teams will go down to southampton and take anything. This has too many variables and as such I would stay clear and look for value elsewhere.

                          In terms of sunderland v plymouth it is another no bet, sunderland are lightweight up front and playing under themselves and plymouth slightly over themselves due in large parts to holloway's inital motivation factor which serves his club's well in the early months, but may later fade like it did for QPR. I could forsee all three results in here and as such would tell you not to get involved here either.

                          God i'm the source of all negativity this week, trust me they are value bets out there, just not either of these.
