Wolves bidding to avoid equalling club record tonight

Wolves are facing Brighton in the Premier League tonight, and are bidding to avoid equalling a club record in the top-flight.

The game is kicking off at 7.30pm at the Amex Stadium, and Wolves are looking to get back to winning ways.

Bruno Lage’s side have suffered back-to-back defeats to the two best teams in the division – Liverpool and Manchester City.

Wolves were somewhat unlucky to come away from both clashes with absolutely nothing.

It was a huge defensive effort in both matches, with a last-minute winner and a penalty that should not have been ultimately costing Wolves points.

Tonight’s game is a good chance to turn things around.

But Graham Potter has had them playing some really good football, and so the game will not be easy.

Just of late, Wolves have had a big problem scoring goals.

The team have not found the back of the net since Raul Jimenez scored in the 1-0 win over West Ham United on November 20.

If Wolves fail to score again tonight, that will be five top-flight games in a row without netting. That would equal their longest run, last set in September 2003 (via BBC Sport).

It would be nice to see the Wolves of the first few weeks of 2021/22 tonight. Fluid passing, intense pressing and crating chances.

Jimenez will be a big miss, but Wolves stilll have several threats.

Brighton will not be at their strongest on paper. Hopefully Lage smells blood.
