Wolves v Leicester: Both teams scoring looks a safe bet

| 16.09.2012

Wolves and Leicester can enjoy their first Midlands derby in five seasons and it is the visitors that can take their home form on their travels with a success at 9/5.

It has been a tale of two opposites for Leicester so far this campaign, winning both of their encounters but losing both away.

However, their record at Molineux is fairly good, suffering just a single defeat in their last eight league visits.

Five of these clashes have ended all square and it is 23/10 that Leicester gain a draw to secure their first away point of the season.

Wolves may be unbeaten at home so far, but four points from as many games is not the start that supporters would have hoped for from Stale Solbakken, after he took over the reins in the summer following their Premier League relegation.

He has brought in a host of new faces that are still trying to gel and it may take a bit longer yet.

Wolves are marginal favourites at 6/4 to beat Leicester and a victory would see them overhaul their rivals in the Championship standings.

The expected return of captain Karl Henry from a hamstring strain would serve as a boost to their hopes of success.

Arguably the best bet on offer at Molineux is the 4/6 available on both teams finding the scoresheet.

This has happened in both of Wolves’ home games so far this season and also the two away trips of Leicester.

In terms of who will get the goals, Kevin Doyle is favourite to grab the opener at 5/1 and he would have received a confidence boost from his late goal in the Republic of Ireland’s World Cup qualifier victory over Kazakhstan.

For Leicester, David Nugent is one away from reaching 100 in his club career and he can be backed at 7/1 to break the deadlock.
