Awful Wolves shot statistic emerges ahead of trip to Crystal Palace

Wolves are taking on Crystal Palace tonight in the Premier League and are looking to follow up their weekend win over Nottingham Forest.

Wanderers enjoyed a morale-boosting 1-0 victory over the Reds at Molineux.

Ruben Neves scored from the penalty spot, and Jose Sa then saved one from Brennan Johnson.

It was a huge result, and one that lifted Wolves out of the bottom three.

Tonight, the team are in south London at Selhurst Park to take on a Palace side who have not done as well as expected so far this season.

Patrick Vieira enjoyed a pretty good first season at the club. And many felt as though he’d really get them to kick on in 2022/23.

But they have taken just 10 points from their first nine games. That’s only one more than Wolves.

But tonight could be a tricky game for managerless Wanderers – the Eagles have won each of the last three meetings.

Wolves’ struggles this season have been documented.

The scoring of goals is the biggest issue at the moment, and Wolves have been finding that particularly difficult away from home.

According to WhoScored, Wolves have taken 73 shots at goal in away games since they last scored a goal.

The last person to score was Daniel Podence at Elland Road on the opening day of the season.

Wolves forwards are long overdue a good goalscoring performance

To have not scored a goal away from home after 73 shots at good is very poor.

Potentially at this point the lack of scoring – both home and away – has become a psychological issue.

There’s an abundance of talent in the squad.

It is astonishing to see the team regularly failing to breach opposition defences.
