One to watch

Carl Cort

Carl Cort - 9 goals

Wolves's bad boy

Mark Kennedy - 4 0

Palace old boys

Rob Edwards & George Ndah (If hes not offside..)

The lanky front man has already shown Palace fans how much of a threat he can be, bagging a late winner in the return meeting at Molineux earlier in the season. The ex-Wimbledon (that’s MK Dons to you younger folk) and Newcastle player has found his form once more under the guidance of Glenn “God” Hoddle.

Cort has already bagged 9 goals this season and will be a huge threat as he aims to go in to double figures. His height will make him a threat from the long balls that Hoddle gets his team to knock up to Cort, and on the ground his pace and strength will cause The Eagles’ backline a lot of hassle.

Another key man for the Wolves (meow!) will be left back Lee Naylor who will cause a particular threat from any set pieces given anywhere from 30 yards to the edge of the area. Naylor can strike a free kick better than most, so this is something Palace will have to keep an eye out for. He is also extremely strong at the back and forms part of a formidable back line.

Tom Huddlestone and Ki-Hyeon Seol will look to run the midfield and supply Cort with the ammunition he needs to fire the Golden Shower that is Wolves to victory – let’s hope this doesn’t happen though.
