      Tip Reasoning

      The pre-season view was that Wolves could potentially mount a promotion challenge and they started brightly with a win at Blackburn but things have gone downhill since then and it might not be such a pleasant second season back at this level for Wolves.

      First the loss of Bakary Sako to Crystal Palace was a massive blow. The winger scored 15 goals in the Championship last season and there are even rumours Benik Afobe who has taken over the goalscoring mantle may leave before the window closes. Defensively they have been poor and you have to go back to last season for their last clean sheet. Defeats to QPR and Cardiff in their last two Championship matches have even led to the odd murmouring of discontent for the first time in what has been an otherwise fantastic two years under Kenny Jackett.

      In short, Wolves aren’t in a great place right now and looked a little shell-shocked in the defeat to Cardiff when they couldn’t even get much going in an attacking sense.
      By contrast Guy Luzon has made an excellent start to his Charlton career with two wins and two draws to open up the season in the league as well as two convincing cup wins. Confidence is high with the unbeaten Addicks and they travel to the West Midlands with real momentum, especially after Johann Guðmunds­son netted a 98th minute winner against Hull City, who are one of the strongest sides in the division last weekend.

      Therefore they look excellent value at 19/20 to extend their unbeaten start at Molineux on Saturday and go into the international break on a high. Wolves meanwhile could probably do with two weeks to re-group and sort out their defensive issues but the same problems could well be evident in this game.

      If Charlton are bold they could win the game but they are likely to be content with a point here. You can certainly see them breaking down the shaky Wolves defence at some point in the game, while Wolves are always a threat going forward at home, so a score draw looks likely and you can back it to end 1-1 at 11/2.
