After a push in Holland, we're off to the English Midlands to see if Wolves can return to winning ways in the Championship.

"Reading have won just one of their last 16 Championship games, and they are leaking plenty of goals."

Royals should fear a visit to Wolves' lair

A Dutch draw last night to start the week, and no harm done as Fortuna Sittard's late leveller against De Graafschap means our stake was returned.

We'll re-invest that money closer to home, as Wolves take on Reading. I used to cover Wolves a lot for radio, when Kevin Doyle led the line and every press conference with Mick McCarthy was a brutal game of cat-and-mouse.

Things are a little different at Molineux these days, with Wolves top of the Championship, and boasting a squad that certainly won't look out of place if it wins promotion.

However, Nuno's men are having a little wobble. They were stuffed 4-1 at Aston Villa at the weekend, and it wasn't that long ago that they went down 2-0 at Fulham. Their lead at the top has been cut to three points after a run of one win in five games.

However, there's a big gulf in quality between the likes of Aston Villa and Fulham, and a struggling side like Reading. The Royals are just six points above the Championship dropzone, having won just one of their last 16 games in the league. They have leaked 13 goals in their last seven outings.

Nuno has called for focus and an extra effort from the fans for what is an important game. Despite Wolves' slump, they are still the best side in the division, and I expect them to beat a poor Reading side comfortably.
