On the road to Deepdale next weekend as Wolves travel to face Preston, another side who will try and get in our face.

Just outside the top six expect Preston to try and back us up which could leave them vulnerable on the break.

Forecast for this one, ONE EACH, another step on the road to promotion.

Always been a tough ground to win at, and they have only lost once in 15, but they have a couple of suspensions and have lost their main goalscorer since we last faced each other.

A scrap of a match on the cards in which Neves may well finally get that unwanted yellow.

I can see us losing this one, but I think Villa will lose at Fulham as well

Preston are number one on the list for Yellow cards in the Championship this season with 73 to their name so far.

With Wolves capacity to draw fouls much depends on the referee if they are to see the game out with eleven players still on the field.

You don't see Preston as having the organisational pressing and athleticism to put Wolves under extreme pressure on their own patch.

That's confidence, I hand that to you.

For those of you going to the game check out the Preston fan in the seats to your right. He is an Asian bloke, obviously a Sikh, an obviously barking mad, check him out bruvs.
If you are going by train it is a fookin long walk from the station I tell thee.

No such thing as an easy away match. Preston are going full out to make the top six. It will be a tough match that I reckon we will play mainly on the break. A very nervy tight 2-1 in our favour.

We struggled against them in the home fixture, I think this one will be tougher than some think

He was at the Mol this season, on the one edge of the Preston fans, constantly waving a blue-white-and-blue Preston Union Jack. I think it's him on the intro of the Championship programme. Fair play to him.

I ay bin to Deepdale since 87, when it was a tinder box, but a cracking stadium. The following season we beat them 6-0 at the Mol.

A tough game indeed, however, I am expecting Wolves to win 2-0 or 2-1, but a Wolves win!

I'd be more worried if they still had Hugill. He would have caused us major problems. But without him I expect us to win. Won't be easy though, they're playing well.

The key aspect of the game for me is how many errors Preston can force out of Wolves with their constant pressing and pressure.

If Wolves find time Wolves win, if they dont its a difficult afternoon.

Nuno had one of the wackiest substitutions I can remember from him, it was Dean Saunders like in its thought process.

Afobe for N'Diaye.

Yeah but you rectified it.

Every now and then Nuno throws in a real curveball with his subs that leaves the team stumped. Thankfully he generally gets his starting XIs absolutely spot on.

Well, it was a scrap of a match as I thought, but at least Neves escaped. My Sky Super 6 prediction of 1-1 unfortunately spot on... 30 minutes against 10, I hoped we could turn it around - still just that game at Ashton Gate that has seen us turnaround a match.

It's not as bad as that makes it seem though, we have only lost 4 all season and at least 2 of the 5 draws we have come from behind.

What do you mean by 'find time'? Nuno said words to the effect of, 'when they went to 10 men, they obviously played deeper and we needed a different more slower build up to break them down', obviously, he knows that they didn't do it the way he explains it post game.

BTW, it appears I was referee too:-

Referee:
Robert Jones
Attendance:
18,570

Its using English eyes to look at the game which was wrong on my part because the Portuguese coach looks at the game differently.

What I summized was if Wolves had time to get their heads up and see the pass then play the pass it would be happy days.
What Nuno does is think with a different mindset.
Its more, can we get on the ball facing the opponent, isolate them in one on one situations, go past them, then use speed of attack.
They look to break the initial first line as a first thought.
