Watford boss Roy Hodgson delivers verdict on Wolves ahead of tonight's Premier League clash

Wolves are taking on Watford in the Premier League tonight and are looking to get things back on track.

Three straight defeats have somewhat knocked the stuffing out of Wanderers, who could now struggle to secure European football.

It has been a really disappointing past couple of weeks.

After the wins against Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur, things were looking really good.

But Wanderers have performed poorly since then, and the losses to league rivals Arsenal and West Ham were hard to take.

Then, last weekend’s defeat to Crystal Palace was just sorry.

A big response is needed tonight. And Hornets boss Roy Hodgson is still wary of Wolves’ threat despite the club not being in a particularly good moment.

He said (Watford official): “We know Wolves are a good team, they’re hard to beat and they’re not in their position in the table by chance, they’re there because they play well and take points from games.”

Wolves will again be without Nelson Semedo, and Ki-Jana Hoever will also be unavailable after going off injured against Palace.

It is highly like Jonny Castro Otto will make his first start for the club a year on from his last.

It is also very possible Raul Jimenez will return to lead the line after being benched for the last couple of games.

A golden chance for Wolves to steady the ship

Wolves have been shocking over the past couple of weeks.

It has been really disappointing to see the level of performance on show in a crucial moment.

Watford will not have Ismaila Sarr tomorrow night, and may also not have Josh King.

Like Wolves, they are in poor form. They’re fighting for their Premier League lives so it could be another tough game.

But Wolves have got to just try and take the game to their opponents. We have seen it here and there this season where Wolves actually pass the opposition to death for short spells in games.

Seeing that tomorrow evening would be really good after some awful displays of late.
