Recent respective form guides

Wolverhampton Wanderers have only collected 1 win and 3 draws from the last six home games played. Only 2 goals have been registered in this time, with 4 in the wrong end.

Wolves are hovering perilously just above the relegation zone, with 35 points from 37 matches. Sunderland see themselves just below half way in the Barclays Premier League, showing a record of 44 points from their 37 games played so far,
