Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Stale Solbakken is well aware of the threat posed by in-form Crystal Palace ahead of tonight’s clash at Molineux.

After a nightmare start to the season, Dougie Freedman’s side have turned things around with four wins in their last five games, including particularly impressive showings against Cardiff and Bolton.

Wolves sit 3rd in the table, meanwhile, having won their last four games on the bounce.

“I’ve been impressed by what they’ve done, especially in their last two games in beating Cardiff and Bolton,” Solbakken said.

“That shows how difficult this game will be. We’ve controlled the last two games against Peterborough and Sheffield Wednesday quite well.

“But in this division, every game has a life of its own in a way! It’s hard to predict anything.

“Hopefully we can work at what we’ve done in the last two weeks.”
