Molineux, Tuesday, 7.45pm

IF Blackburn v Bolton is a massive match then this affair at Molineux is almost as important to Wolves.

Mick McCarthy's men are down in fourth bottom, five clear of Bolton and four ahead of Blackburn, as they prepare to welcome Norwich.

Wolves threw away a golden chance of points against Stoke at the weekend and like Blackburn can't seem to finish off games these days.

McCarthy's under just as much pressure as the likes of Owen Coyle at Bolton but a win against Paul Lambert's promoted outfit would help his festive dinner go down much easily. Lose and he could be another Christmas turkey.

However, it's a tough ask against a side who have adapted superbly to life in the top flight after two successive promotions.

Lambo's side don't have any superstars but possess a great work ethic and team spirit and sit proudly in ninth spot after a weekend draw at Everton.

Norwich have come so far so quickly that not many people were willing to side with the Goodison Park men at the weekend with most believing the Canaries wouldn't lose and possibly even sneak the points.

In the end they came close but the 1-1 draw will have given them another lift because most of their points have come at Carrow Road.

My opinion is the same as Saturday when I tipped Norwich at 13-10 on the double chance (not to lose).

This time the double chance is probably not worth taking at 8-11 with Coral while a draw pays a best 12-5 at bet365.

Wolves are 6-5 with the likes of Paddy Power, Ladbrokes and William Hill while Norwich are 9-4 at firms including Betfred, Hills and bodog to pick up just a second away win of the season.

Steven Fletcher has netted 16 Premier League goals in 24 starts but flopped against Stoke at the weekend.

He is 6-1 at Paddy Power and unibet to hit the opener while Norwich talisman Grant Holt, on target with a clever finish a Everton, is 13-2 (various).
