Wolverhampton Wanderers travel to the City Ground as both sides will be playing for pride on Saturday afternoon after disappointing campaigns.

The home side got their first win in nine last time out with a 3-1 win over Fulham to give interim manager Paul Williams his first win in charge of the team.

Like their opponents, Wolves have had a difficult season on and off the pitch and they are without a win in their last four games, something they’ll be looking to change on Saturday.

Here are THREE things to look out for in the match

1) Paul Williams hoping to sign off at the City Ground with a win

The managerial merry-go-round continued at Forest this season with owner Fawaz Al-Hasawi decided to relieve Dougie Freedman of his duties, despite doing a decent job under the circumstances.

He replaced him with first team coach Paul Williams until the end of the season but the change has not had the desired effect, with the 45-year-old only claiming one win so far.

This is likely to be his final game in charge of the side and he will be hoping to sign off his final home game in charge with a win.

2) Kenny Jackett looking to put a disappointing season behind him

After just missing out on the play-offs last season, Wolves fans were hoping that their side would build on that this time around and finish in the top six.

However it hasn’t worked out like that at all. Owner Steve Morgan announced that he was looking to sell the club and star players Bakary Sako and Benik Afobe have left the club, with less capable replacements being brought in.

This has been a miserable campaign for the former Millwall boss and he will be looking forward to putting it behind him this summer.

3) Wolves’ awful record at the City Ground

Last season, Kenny Jackett’s men ended a thirty-nine year hoodoo by winning at the City Ground for the first time since August 1976.

Wolves’ record of two wins in forty years in Nottingham will not fill Wolves fans and players with confidence and even though they won last time, this game is historically a difficult one for them.

Wolves don’t have the best away record in recent weeks either so their aren’t many reasons to be positive for fans going into this one.

Nottingham Forest and Wolves fans…What are your predictions for the match? Can Paul Williams make it two wins from two? Will Wolves make back-to-back wins at the City Ground? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
