WOLVES LOSE TWO SUCCESSIVE LEAGUE GAMES
Wolverhampton Wanderers have now lost their last two games in the Premier League after they were beaten 1-0 at Burnley on Sunday. Czech striker MatejVydra scored the only goal of the game in the second half off the assist from Dutchman WoutWeghorst to hand his team three huge points in their quest to survive the relegation zone this season.
Wolves came into the Burnley game on the back of threedefeats in four games away from home and the Clarets were able to make it four defeats in five games away from the Molineux thanks to Vydra who applied the finish from close range for the winning goal in the second half. Vydra was the only change made by caretaker manager Mike Jackson from the team that beat Southampton 2-0 at home and the Czech Republic national team star was responsible for the lone goal in the game having replaced Ivorian player Maxwel Cornet in the Burnley starting XI.
For Wolves, they had a very good record on the road until the impressive 2-0 away win over Tottenham Hotspur. The recent poor away form started with the 2-1 comeback defeat at Arsenal. Wolves took the lead in the first half through Hwang Hee-Chan before late goals from substitute Nicholas Pepe and a Jose Sa own goal gave Arsenal the three points. Since the Arsenal defeat, they have lost to West Ham United, Newcastle United and now Burnley with the only away win coming at Everton thanks to the first half header from skipper ConorCoady. His header gave Wolverhampton Wanderers a 1-0 away win over Everton.
Burnley manager Jackson has done a fantastic job since he assumed caretaker role earlier this month following the sacking of long-term manager Sean Dyche. He has won seven points from the maximum nine points and taken Burnley two points clear of the relegation zone.
