Mark Lawrenson predicts Norwich will beat Wolves at Molineux

Wolves are back in action tomorrow when Norwich visit Molineux in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

BBC Sport pundit Mark Lawrenson has made his prediction for the game, which comes on the back of a perfect January for Wolves.

Despite that, he thinks that Dean Smith’s struggling side will come away 1-0 winners and book their place in the fifth round.

Lawrenson’s prediction

“Wolves are having a great season in the Premier League but I just wonder how seriously their manager Bruno Lage will take the FA Cup, given they have a chance of making the top six.

“Norwich’s priority is obviously to stay up but their form had just started to improve before the season paused last month. When you are struggling, winning games is a healthy habit to keep whatever the competition.

Lawro’s prediction: Wolves 0-1 Norwich.”

No Premier League team can be taken lightly but Lawrenson’s prediction does not make a great deal of sense.

Why would Wolves not take the FA Cup seriously? They are in absolutely no relegation danger, with no European commitments and in need of some silverware to mark the period of modern success they have enjoyed with something tangible.

The Premier League meeting at Carrow Road was 0-0 so it could be a tight game but it is fair to assume not many Wolves fans will not agree with the prediction.
