The draw looks the best option in Saturday's live evening Championship fixture.
Blackburn v Wolves - Saturday 17:30, Sky Sports 1
Sam Allardyce, Nigel Pearson and Paul Lambert are reportedly on the shortlist of candidates for the Wolves job, so caretaker Rob Edwards would be wise to dismiss any ideas he might have about trying to stay in the role for an extended period. A quick appointment should be expected. With no game in midweek, this will probably be his only game in the dugout.
But you can’t knock his enthusiasm. The 33-year-old former Wales centre back is just as excited about the opportunity as you would expect and it could provide a stark contrast compared to the mood around Molineux over the past couple of weeks as the vultures began circling around Walter Zenga. By all accounts, the Italian was well-liked by the players.
All things being equal, I make the 90-minute prices about right and the overwhelming temptation is to sit on the fence and back the draw at 23/10. Blackburn have got their act together in recent weeks, splitting possession almost 50-50 against a string of top-half opposition over the past month or so but coming up short in terms of chances created.
With home advantage, they have it in them to grab a goal at some point and you have to go back seven matches for the last time they conceded twice in the same match, so stick an additional point on the 1-1 correct score at 6/1. With so many unknown variables, particularly regarding how Wanderers intend to set up, it’s hard to make a stand-up case for either side.
