Go on then-what's the score going to be.

I don't think there's anything here for us.
On a good day it'll be 2-0. On a bad day possibly 3 or 4-0

My prediction: Wolves 3-1 Bolton with us having around 19% possession again.

With Parky stating that he's backing his own judgement and won't be making any major changes for the Wolves game, we can only hope they find a way to avoid spending 90% of the game defending like the Alamo. I'm also thinking 2 nil to the Wolves but as usual hoping for better.

We'll be lucky to get away without conceding at least 4, it's so annoying reading the empty words spouted by Parkinson, there's not a snowball in hells chance he can change his style as he is so limited in ability.

Everyone on the Wolves chat room reckons they will win comfortably with predictions varying from 2 nil to 4 nil and nearly all reckoning Brazilian Leo Bonatini will score first. They have so many good foreign players, it's hard to pick a first scorer though. Maybe they'll get complacent?

Preview: Five talking points ahead of Wolverhampton Wanderers v Bolton Wanderers

As Wanderers travel to Wolverhampton Wanderers looking to maintain their recent unbeaten run, bwfc.co.uk highlights five talking points ahead of the Whites' Sky Bet Championship clash with Wolves.

1. Unbeaten run

Unbeaten from their last seven outings, Wanderers travel to Sky Bet Championship leaders Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday.

Picking up maximum points against Sheffield Wednesday and Norwich City, the Whites had late goals to curse for stalemates against Queens Park Rangers, Fulham, Sunderland and Reading on top of a goalless draw at Preston North End.

Now preparing for their final outing of November, Bolton will be looking to extend their unbeaten run into a third month despite their underdog status, knowing a victory could see them climb out of the bottom three if other results go their way.

However, the Trotters face arguably their toughest test of the season so far with hosts Wolves winning of their last eight outings in the league.

And with Wanderers' last win on the road at this level coming back in April 2015, they know they will have to be at their very best if they are to clinch a positive result at Molineux.

2. Defensive decision

Manager Phil Parkinson must decide whether to reinstate Mark Beevers to his back four or stick with Reece Burke after the West Ham United loanee scored his first goal for the club on Tuesday night.

Only suspension brought Beevers' ever-present status to an end against Reading in midweek after he picked up his fifth caution of the season against Preston North End.

Burke did his chances of retaining his place no harm against the Royals and continues to impress in the heart of the Whites' back-line when called upon.

However, Beevers has been back to his best alongside David Wheater in recent weeks, providing a healthy selection headache for Saturday's game.

3. No pay on the day

Fans are reminded that tickets for Wanderers' trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday will NOT be available on the day of the game.

Bolton will be backed by over 800 supporters at Molineux this weekend after advance sales closed earlier today.

4. Former Wolves

A number of former Wolves players will be hoping to line up at their former stomping ground come 3pm on Saturday.

Karl Henry memorably won promotion to the Premier League with the club in 2009 as he spent seven seasons in the West Midlands, making 272 appearances and scoring seven goals.

Mark Little started his career at Molineux, making 32 appearances between 2006 and 2010 alongside a handful of loan moves before signing for Peterborough United.

Meanwhile Adam Le Fondre spent the 2015/16 season on loan with Wolves, while David Wheater had a one-month temporary stint at Molineux in October 2006.

Will any come back to haunt their former employers? Only time will tell!

5. Late goals?

With the majority of the Trotters' recent goals coming in the first half with a number of opposition strikes going in late on at the other end, the shoe could be on the other foot on Saturday if Wanderers' recent history at Molineux is anything to go by.

In the eight meetings between the two sides in the West Midlands since the turn of the millennium, 11 of the Whites' 15 strikes have come after the interval.

Furthermore, six of those goals have come in the final ten minutes. Will history repeat itself? Be sure to stay in your seat until the very last kick if you do not want to miss a potential dramatic finish on Saturday!

A game which demonstrated the gulf in class. That said, it's not this game that decides our season. It's the ones in which we lose a lead in the final minutes against teams around us. Barnsley will be a pressure game now.

Spot on Lusty.  The Wolves are a class above (and a few million quid above) everyone else in this league.  The next few games will tell the tale.  It will be interesting to see if KA will splash any money in January to help us survive.  Games like today will see the crowds shrink even further, endangering KA's game plan.  As you said so correctly, we can't be giving away points in the final 10 minutes... that's the difference between survival and League One.  We need to big up wins and we need some reinforcements.  KA - The next move is yours!

Not unexpected I suppose, but again totally set up wrong by a manager who is so tactically inept, there'll be many more results like this with Parkinson still in charge, the likes of Derby, Boro, Leeds licking their lips at the thought of playing us, I now believe we are by far the worst team in this league by a country mile, thanks Parkinson.

We’re a team patched together, restricted by embargoes and being totally skint. How anyone expects us to compete against a side that spend £20+ million in the summer is beyond me.

Definitely aren’t the worst side in this league and I think we’ll stay up just about though sheer effort and team spirit

So what was the point of getting promoted? most teams have spent big in this league, I will refer back to games against Sunderland, QPR, Fulham, Reading, we had leads going into the last 5 minutes had we won them today wouldn't have been a biggie, but we didn't and you can gloss over it all you want but Parkinson has cost us too many points this season, now carry on defending the indefensible.

We got promoted because we won games in League 1. This division is a world apart and millions have been spent by others. In the past, even in the Prem we rarely filled the 28000+ stadium. We don't have a massive fan base, more Manure fans in Bolton than Bolton fans. We are about at the level we could expect without spending big, moving stadiums or a mix of the two. We survive this term and we'll have a similar battle next term unless we are sold and have a goodly amount of the folding stuff spent on players, but our low capacity stadium will always tie us up. Anyway, lots more games to go and fingers crossed.

We don’t need to fill the stadium with 28-000 every week. Burnley Swansea have 20-000 max, Bournemouth have gates of 10-000. If we were in the premier.
Success brings the fans along. 4-500 away at Port Vale in leauge 1. Football success is not only crowd based. Wolves have roughly the same average as Sunderland.
Middlesbrough before they got back up to the premier a few seasons ago were only getting 15-16,000 crowds. We got up last year ,we had no money,an embargo and debt.
A couple of victories and we drag a few teams back in to the Relegation fray. Obviously we have been pegged back from winning positions. But there’s 28 games left.
Wolves have spent Millions. Money talks these days. Everyone would have bitched if we stayed down. Anyone wearing a Scum top should receive a good kicking. Wankers.

Report: Wolverhampton Wanderers 5-1 Bolton Wanderers

Bolton Wanderers' unbeaten run came to a halt against table-toppers Wolverhampton Wanderers who ran out 5-1 winners at Molineux.

The hosts, who picked up their fifth successive Sky Bet Championship victory, cantered into a 2-0 half-time thanks to goals from Willy Boly and Leo Bonatini.

A penalty from Ivan Cavaleiro in the second-half increased the home side’s advantage before substitute Will Buckley reduced the arrears with his first goal in a Wanderers shirt.

But further goals from Cavaleiro and Jota ensured Wolves registered a comprehensive victory in front of their own fans.

Team News

Wanderers made just one side from the side that drew 2-2 with Reading at Macron Stadium on Tuesday evening with Mark Beevers returning from suspension to replace Reece Burke.

Phil Parkinson’s men were aiming to extend their unbeaten run to an eighth game against an in-form Wolves side flying high at the summit of the Sky Bet Championship following a four-game winning streak.

First Half

Wearing all white, Wanderers kicked the game off and fashioned a chance within seconds of getting the game underway when Josh Vela pressured Barry Douglas into losing possession inside his own penalty box. The midfielder saw Gary Madine screaming for the ball unmarked but unfortunately was unable to find the striker.

Vela and Madine combined once again with the former’s free-kick finding the head of the big striker, who was unable to get enough power on the ball to direct it beyond John Ruddy.

Madine took a blow to the head during that attempt and had to go off the field for a short while to receiving treatment and a new shirt.

But it was the hosts who took the early advantage after 13 minutes when Willy Boly powered home Douglas’ corner with a firm header that left Ben Alnwick with no chance.

Boly almost doubled his and his team’s tally with another header just four minutes later but Alnwick somehow kept him out. Wanderers then had to survive a barrage of shots after they failed to clear their lines before Antonee Robinson cleared for a corner.

Bolstered by their early goal, Wolves were trying their luck from all angles and Ivan Cavaleiro went just wide with a left footed drive after cutting in from wide.

The hosts doubled their lead in the 26th minute after Jota lofts the ball over the advancing Alnwick allowing Leo Bonatini to steer into an unguarded goal.

Wanderers looked to get back into the contest with Madine and Sammy Ameobi showing attacking intent. Madine was consistently holding up the ball well and Ameobi causing issues on the right hand with his trickery

Just before the half time whistle both managers were sent to the stands by referee Keith Stroud following a touchline remonstration moments after Wheater was shown a yellow card for a tackle on Jota.

Second Half

Both teams resumed the second half without making any changes and the hosts started as they had left off with a determination to add to their tally.

The visitors were struggling to get hold of the ball against a dominant Wolves midfield.

Bonatini should have done better when presented with a close range effort, only to see his shot deflect for a corner.

Adam Armstrong created a good chance when he sidestepped a Wolves defender but should have done better with his shot which went wide.

But Wolves increased their lead on 62 minutes when Cavaleiro sent his spot kick past Alnwick after Robinson upended Romain Saiss.

Parkinson responded with a double substitution immediately afterwards with Craig Noone and Will Buckley coming on for Ameobi and Armstrong.

Buckley pulled a goal back for Wanderers after 74 minutes after being put through by Madine following some sloppy play by the Wolves defence.

Wanderers made another attacking substitution – their final of the afternoon – with Adam Le Fondre coming on for captain Darren Pratley.

Any hopes of Wanderers getting back into the contest were soon dashed when Cavaleiro thundered his second beyond Alnwick to make it four for the hosts.

Alnwick’s kick went straight to a Wolves player and immediately out his defence on the hop. Cavaleiro evaded several tackles before picking his spot to power past the Wanderers keeper.

Jota made it five with four minutes to go after a swift counter attack saw him place the ball underneath Alnwick.

Full Time

Doesn't matter what the circumstances of our situation is.... we are dead bottom on November 26th.....and that unfortunately means we are the worst team in the league today.
Wolves will have harder games against lower teams than us (FA Cup etc.).....I feel like Parky went there with a loss in mind. There was no "lets have a good old go at them". Such as Mugson yesterday with West Brom.
Still plenty of games left so living in hope I suppose.

I think you'll find that there were plenty of excuses in his post match conference. They just weren't very good ones. He (as predicted) went on about how good Wolves were and how much money they had spent. Problem is that he knew both those things before the match started and didn't have any answers.

I've just sat through the Wolves goals again and there's nothing particularly great about any of them. They're all easily defended by anyone half competent could have dealt with them.

Interested to know what everyone thinks our best defensive line-up is?

I went on Saturday and 5-1 was flattering to Wolves. 

No we didn't play well, we didn't create any clear cut chances and couldn't keep up with Wolves dynamic forward play, but having said that it's not really a surprise is it. Wolves are the exception rather than the rule in this division and they'll make better teams than us look bad. 

The criticism of Parky is unfathomable, the man is being asked to do a job with two hands tied behind his back, he got us on a good unbeaten run which could have been even better with just a little more quality in key moments, seeing it break here is no surprise to anyone - but we should not judge him on that, let's wait and see how we perform against Barnsley. We're better this season than we were under Lennon IMO, maybe that won't be enough to stay up, but Parky has shown enough to be given a chance to try.
