    Wolves host Manchester City tomorrow in an attempt to build on their 1-1 draw in the last match with Bolton, and earn their first Premeirship win.
    For the first time this season, Dave Jones really doesn't have to worry as much about injured players. Steffen Iversen, Joelon Lescott and George Ndah are all out, and Mark Kennedy is 50-50, after he hurt a hamstring in practice. Since Wolves have a 2-week break for international matches after this game, Kennedy may go for at least a little while, seeing as how he'd have time to recover. Everyone else should be available.
    Manchester City will be without Steve McManaman, along with Tiatto, Macken, and Dunne.

    From the BBC:
    Wolves (From): Oakes, Irwin, Butler, Craddock, Naylor, Silas, Ince, Cameron, Newton, Gudjonsson, Camara, Kachloul, Kennedy, Miller, Blake, Sturridge, Luzhny, Rae, Okoronkwo, Clyde, Murray

    Man City: Seaman, Weaver, Sun Jihai, Distin, Sommeil, Wiekens, Tarnat, Jordan, Bosvelt, Sibierski, Reyna, Wright-Phillips, Barton, Berkovic, Sinclair, Anelka, Fowler, Wanchope.

    Stats and Info: Man City are 5th in the Premeirship with 12 points. Wolves sit 20th with 2 points.

    Last Meeting: Man City 2 Wolves 0- Molineux, Division 1, April 1, 2002

    Referee: Jeff Winter (Winter worked the season opener at Blackburn- 1 yellow issued to each team in that match)

    Prediction: Almost a win at Bolton, and the importance of playing 90 minutes in the Premeirship was driven home with Bolton's late equalizer. Wolves have to go into the break with positives, and at minimum, a draw is required in this one. Having a (nearly) full, healthy team will help, and the home crowd pushes it over the top, Wolves finally get their Premeirship win. 1-0 to Wolves.

    Wolves strike first in the 74th minute:
    Cameron on a cross from Camara, and Wolves lead 1-0. Can they hold on this time?

    Wolves hold on for their first Premeirship victory, 1-0 over Man City. This time, there is no late goal to take points away.
