Suddenly on a three-match losing streak, all against London clubs, Wolves hope the tonic is in welcoming a struggling opponent from 20 miles outside the English capital when Watford hits the Molineux (2:30pm ET Thursday online via Peacock Premium).
Wolves fell 2-1 at Arsenal, 1-0 at West Ham, and 2-0 vs Palace, but will expect better when Watford visits town. The Hornets have lost two-of-three, to Palace and Arsenal, sandwiched around a nil-nil draw with Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Watford will hope that United draw is a precursor to a better away result come Thursday. The Hornets are three points outside the bottom three with 11 matches left to play and most of the teams they chase have matches-in-hand.
Wolves cannot afford to drop points in matches like this one, five points back of the top seven with less than a dozen matches to go in their season. They beat Watford 2-0 at Vicarage Road on Sept. 11 and will eye a season sweep in order to renew their hopes of a return to European competition after a year away.
Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Wolves vs Watford.
