Cardiff City v Wolves
English Premier League. Kick off: 8pm, Friday 30th November. Live on Sky Sports Football.
WOLVES have hit a dip in form since their impressive start to the season and have taken just one point from their last five league games.
He sounds like something a priest chants during an exorcism and Nuno Espirito Santo will be hoping to banish the demons of that horror run with a win at Cardiff.
But the Molineux boss will know a clash against Neil Warnock's agricultural Bluebirds side is probably the last thing they need as they bid to halt the slide.
Wolves edged a 1-0 win in Wales on their procession to the Championship title last season but also lost the reverse fixture 2-1 at home.
It will be an interesting clash of styles as Santo's merry band of Portuguese artists will have to cope with a hectic 90 minutes and plenty of physical challenges. I'm expecting a few bookings and 888 Sport offer 4/1 on big Sol Bamba to get a card which looks a great bet.
I fancied Wolves to get back to winning ways at home to Huddersfield last weekend only for them to let me down so I'm loath to tip them here.
Cardiff's price of 11/4 with 888 Sport looks generous after winning two of their last three home games in the league while the draw also appeals at 43/20.
Callum Paterson has been used as a makeshift striker by Neil Warnock a few times this season and the Scot is good value at 3/1 for anytime scorer at 888 Sport.
Raul Jimenez has been the main man up front for Wolves but looked short of confidence against Huddersfield, blowing a couple of good chances. He's 4/1 to score first with 888 Sport and 7/4 for anytime scorer but there's better value in Ruben Neves, who sealed that 1-0 win in Cardiff last term.
The classy midfielder is a threat from set-pieces and penalties so he seems a good option at 4/1 for anytime scorer.
- Cardiff to win 11/4 (888 Sport)
- Sol Bamba to get a card 4/1 (888 Sport)
- Ruben Neves anytime scorer 4/1 (888 Sport)
