Sports Mole looks ahead to Watford's trip to Wolverhampton Wanderers, who are still looking for their first win under Dean Saunders.

Wolverhampton Wanderers will head into Friday's encounter against Watford having not won under the management of Dean Saunders, who took charge of the club at the beginning of January.

As a result, the Black Country outfit have slipped into the relegation zone and will only lift themselves out of the bottom three with a victory against Gianfranco Zola's team.

Saunders's chances of claiming that maiden victory are hampered by the fact that they are playing host to the side with the best away record in the division. The Hornets have won 10 and drawn two of their 17 outings on the road.

It remains to be seen who Saunders will hand a place to in the starting lineup, with the Welsh boss having changed his team on a regular basis over recent weeks in a bid to reverse their fortunes.

There could be a change up front, with both Kevin Doyle and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake thought to be in contention.

Meanwhile, visiting Watford may recall Troy Deeney, who is likely to partner leading goalscorer Matej Vydra in attack.
