However, there is a strong chance that both will be relegated this term, with Wolves sitting 18th in the table after being stuffed 5-0 at Fulham, just a fortnight after that 5-1 humiliation at home to West Brom that cost Mick McCarthy his job.
Terry Connor appears to have his work cut out and he hasn’t been helped by captain Roger Johnson pitching up for training under the influence of alcohol, with the former Birmingham defender being fined two weeks wages in the process.
What chance do Wolves have on Saturday? A reasonably good one according to the bookies, who offer 7/5 (Betfred free bets) about a home win and the supporters will be out in force to cheer on their beleaguered team.
Perhaps Steven Fletcher will start the game based on the fact that he is the team’s top scorer and it was a surprise to see the Scot on the bench at Craven Cottage, with odds of 11/2 (Bet Victor) about him opening the scoring against Blackburn.
Rovers are currently out of the relegation zone by virtue of their opponents getting a pasting by Fulham and Steve Kean’s side are far from dead and buried, despite numerous supporter protests against the manager since the early throes of the season.
With so much uncertainty surrounding Wolves at the moment, the 2/1 (bet365 £200 free bets) about an away win looks pretty tasty and Yakubu could be the man for the occasion as he was at Old Trafford in December.
