Wolves v Newcastle: match preview

Wolves will hope Raúl Jiménez’s goal against Southampton last week is proof their precious striker is regaining his sharpness – and that some of his teammates will do likewise. Newcastle, on the other hand, will hope Wolves’ conversion rate remains low, to help Steve Bruce’s side eke out their first win of the season. Both clubs feel results have not adequately rewarded their performances this season, but they may have to settle for another 1-1 draw, which was the outcome in their last four meetings. Paul Doyle
