The matches come thick and fast now with two home games where Wolves will look to cement their position at the top of the Championship.

What about Leeds, well they beat Boro yesterday in a game that never really took off, a niggly affair.

Some talent in the forward positions but far more vulnerable to the counter attack on transition than last weekends opponents Reading.

Forecast.

Wolves to fill their boots in a highly enjoyable encounter.

Possible changes Douglas back in for sure, others well Nuno will have to identify those struggling a little with limited recovery times.

They are our toughest game on paper until the New Year and I fear that yesterday's result against a decent Boro side will have restored their confidence. We'll need to be more aggressive going forward than Saturday's display.

In front of a near sell out crowd, we will have to be at it from the first minute, Leeds have blown hot and cold so far this season but on their day can beat anybody. The next two games can see us get maximum points and maybe open up a gap of a few points, I see Nuno making a couple of changes at least in both the next two games.

And Sunderland under Coleman won't be there to roll over.

Looks like both Bristol City and Sheff Utd are going to lose tonight. Cardiff just scored though.

We just need to keep winning regularly (not EVERY game) and we'll be ok. ALL of the top sides will slip up on occasion, and we have the best squad to slip less than most.

Still do not believe Sheff Utd will keep up, or Cardiff. Many of their games are 'horrid' scabby affairs. Also Villa will lose a few... and Derby.. and....

Let's just have 3 points and a convincing performance!!

Agreed. We're going to lose plenty of times this season. But so will everyone else. Just need make sure the odd loss doesn't turn into a run of 2-3 without a win and we'll be OK I reckon.

Hi gladbach. With it being a midweek game, might only get chance for a quick one at the game, sorry. Xmas lights are Being switched on tonight too, so town will be busy.

Hopefully catch up at a weekend game sometime

Thanks, Hugh, I did not know that the Xmas lights were being switched on tonight, that creates even more people into the City centre..going to be a mad evening by the look of it.

Not sure how many go for lights 'switch-on'. Not exactly Oxford Street.... But I'm getting there early just in case! (A show on at Civic Hall too - Sean Lock - will add to the evening traffic. Escaping at 10.00pm might be a nightmare!)

As well as the Christmas lights being switched on, the comedian Sean Lock is appearing I think at the Civic. There are extra road closures in the city centre because of the 3 events. Get there early if you can.

Gone for a 2-0 win in the prediction league but the way the weather is it could make the game more difficult.

His name came into my head as first scorer and I thought, no chance, play safe and go for Bonatini. I should get some points though as said on 9 minutes so, still inside the 5 - perhaps!
