- Wolves have won four of their last five games by a single goal
- The hosts are on a three-game winning streak at Molineux, winning 1-0 twice and 2-1
- Recommended bet: Wolves to win by one goal

Wolves have a golden opportunity to book a trip to Wembley in the opening game of the weekend’s FA Cup quarter-finals. They host the lowest-ranked team left in the competition at home.

Wolves are odds-on favourites to make the last four and build on a fantastic Premier League campaign. The hosts are flying high in ninth despite starting the season among the leading contenders for relegation and they could cap off the campaign with a cup final. 

Team news

Wolves have some big names absent, with Pedro Neto, Hwang Hee-Chan, Jean-Ricner Bellegarde and Mattheus Cunha ruled out. Craig Dawson is also an injury doubt and he’ll be assessed ahead of this clash.

As for Coventry, they are expected to be without Tatsuhiro Sakamoto and Jamie Allen, but Ben Sheaf returned last weekend and he should also feature here. 

The stats

Wolves have won by a single goal in nine of their 12 Premier League wins this season.

The hosts have seven home league wins to their name, with all but one coming by a single goal.

Coventry have lost by one goal in seven of their eight Championship defeats.

The visitors have lost 2-1 in four of their five visits to the Championship’s top six.

Neto, Bellegarde, Cunha and Hee-Chan have scored 23 of Wolves' 42 league goals this season.

Wolves head into this clash priced at 4/7 with LiveScore Bet to win in 90 minutes and they’re 5/16 to qualify for the semi-final by any means. While the Premier League side are strong favourites, this cup tie is still likely to be a close one.

For starters, Wolves are missing four key attacking players. Their absent attackers - Neto, Bellegarde, Cunha and Hee-Chan - have chipped in with 23 league goals this season, over half their tally. With the quartet also contributing 19 assists, it’s hard to see Wolves running away with this contest without them.

The gap between the Premier League outfit and the Championship play-off hopefuls can’t be ignored. 

Coventry have visited five of the top six in the second tier, losing 2-1 on four occasions. The Sky Blues have had trouble on their travels overall, suffering eight away defeats. Outside of a surprise defeat at bottom side Rotherham, those have all come by a single goal.

Wolves are well-versed in narrow wins by this point, having edged games by one goal in nine of their 12 league victories. The hosts have won by a single goal in four of their last five, continuing their good form in spite of their injury list.

All the pressure is on Wolves in this tie, but they should be able to make it through. Look to a narrow home win as the best bet here, with Wolves taken to win by a single goal.
