Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe has given his verdict on Wolves this morning, as the sides prepare to face off at St. James’ park tomorrow night.
It’s a big game for both teams.
Wolves need three points to continue their push to secure European football.
And Newcastle are looking to get back on track having lost their last three games. With Burnley winning against Everton last night, the Magpies are now seven points above the relegation zone.
Wolves ran out 2-1 winners in the reverse fixture back in October.
Hwang Hee-chan bagged a brace that day, and Bruno Lage might be tempted to start the South Korean again.
Newcastle may be on a losing run at the moment, but they are a much better side than the one that rocked up at Molineux under Steve Bruce.
Howe has done a good job since coming in, and he has been speaking about tomorrow night’s match this morning.
He said about Wolves: “It’s a big challenge. Their record away from home has been very good all season. They’re tight at the back and they’ve got players that can hurt you with the ball.
“We believe we can beat anybody when we bring our A game so we need to do that.”
A potentially difficult games lies in store for Wolves
Wolves are hard to break down, as Howe says, but the defenders could be in for a hard time tomorrow night.
Newcastle really benefit from playing at home before their supporters.
They are going to be deafening tomorrow night as they try to inspire their players back to winning ways.
The Magpies will be hoping Allan Saint-Maximin can provide a bit of magic for them. And they also have Chris Wood leading the line. He has, of course, given Wolves quite a bit of trouble in the recent past.
