Wolves to light up the Sky at Millmoor?

Last updated : 29 November 2002 By Dave Burgess


Wolves are in 6th, Rotherham in 10th.

Wolves are unbeaten in their last 8 league games whilst Rotherham’s form has been patchy over the same period recording just 2 victories.

However, Rotherham have lost just once at home this season, to Portsmouth, so are a tough nut to crack.

We’ve already got a draw there, 4-4, in the Worthington Cup, losing on penalties, so we know what to expect.

What about the opposition?

Well they are a mixture of experienced heads and possibly under-rated solid division one professionals.

Always easy to write them off as they are a small club but they are proving to be Wimbledon-esque with their tenacity to turn over supposedly ‘better’ teams.

After the Ronnie Moore ‘is he going to Ipswich or isn’t he’ they’ve maintained a position in the top half of the division.

Lee, Byfield and Barker are the men to watch with respect to goal scoring.

They score regularly and if the opposition defence isn’t up to a physical battering then they can record wins by big margins.

Soon to follow for Wolves:

Two home games against Norwich and Coventry.

Score Prediction:

Well last season I was there when we won 3-0. However, the scoreline did flatter Wolves are they did have us on the wrack for quite a while.

Carlton Cole could make his debut if Deano isn’t fully fit and Ince will return from suspension to replace Andrews.

As for whether Cooper starts in favour of Newton we won’t know until the line-ups are announced. However, given the fact that Jones seemingly loves Newton, it’s likely that he’ll keep his place.

5 of the players who played in the 4-4 draw won’t be starting tomorrow so that result can be discounted as a guide as to what to expect.

We are going to have to ride it out in the early stages and Clyde and Lescott will have to be on their toes and hopefully Kennedy will be able to supply the ammunition to turn the game in our favour.

It’s the sort of game you have to win to maintain hopes of promotion.

Come on the Wolves!
