History of the Wolverhampton Wanderers v Crystal Palace fixture

Crystal Palace face a trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Eagles will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 14 and win only 6 of the 27 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides was just last season, in November 2006, where the two sides shared the spoils courtesy of a 1 - 1 final scoreline in a Championship match.

Recent respective form guides

Wolverhampton Wanderers have been playing quite well at home, winning 3, drawing 2, and losing just 1. The goals for column just outweighs the goals against over this period, 7 to 5.

The Eagles have had a decent run of form away from home recently, tasting just one defeat in their last six, and picking up four good wins. Just 7 goals have scored in these games, though to be fair only a measly 4 have been let in at the wrong end.

Wolves's 37 points from 26 games sees them lie inside the top half of the table, in 10th position. Crystal Palace lie just outside the playoff positions in the Coca-Cola Championship, picking up 38 from their 26 games so far.
