Stoke vs Wolves – Wolves to gain valuable point to aid safety hopes

| 26.04.2011

Wolves may have the worst away form in the Premier League, but their fine recent record at Stoke can be continued to ensure they take something in their quest for survival this season.

Match Odds

A draw at the Britannia Stadium would be enough to lift Wolves out of the bottom three on goal difference, but they have only taken eight points on their travels all campaign.

However, Stoke are not in the greatest recent form themselves thanks to just six points in their last eight league fixtures and therefore 5/2 looks the best price in the Premier League odds that the outcome is a draw.

Wolves’ odds are 10/3 to claim a vital three points that will help in their quest to avoid relegation and they are unbeaten in their last four trips to Stoke.

Stoke have only lost one of their last seven meetings with Wolves in all competitions and are 5/6 to secure maximum points, which would confirm their survival.

Meanwhile, Stoke have taken 14 points from their last six Premier League home games.

First Goalscorer

A lot of pressure will fall on the shoulders of Steven Fletcher to grab a goal for Wolves at Stoke.

Mick McCarthy’s team are definitely without Kevin Doyle, while fellow striker Sylvain Ebanks-Blake is a big doubt with a hamstring problem.

This has caused Sam Vokes to be recalled from his loan spell at Norwich, but Fletcher will lead the line and is 8/1 in the Premier League betting to score first.

John Carew returns for Stoke again after missing the draw at Aston Villa and can be backed at 5/1 to break the deadlock.

A £30 stake on Stoke and Wolves drawing 1-1 would return £165. New customers can sign up here for a free £30 bet.
