“I expect”: Paul Merson backs it up as he makes a ‘proper’ claim over Wolves ahead of the Nottingham Forest clash…

In anticipation of the upcoming clash between Wolves and Nottingham Forest this weekend, football pundit Paul Merson has expressed his admiration for Wolves and their recent performance under the management of Gary O’Neil. Following a 1-0 victory against Burnley that broke a two-game losing streak, Merson commended Wolves as a “proper mid-table team” and acknowledged their commendable achievements this season.

Praising O’Neil’s impact at Molineux, Merson, in his predictions column for SportsKeeda, lauded Wolves for their recent success, stating, “I like Wolves, they are a proper mid-table team and have done really well for themselves this season under Gary O’Neil.” The football analyst expressed confidence in Wolves’ abilities, suggesting that they possess the necessary qualities to outperform Nottingham Forest in the upcoming match.

Merson’s optimistic outlook is reflected in his scoreline prediction, foreseeing a 1-0 victory for Wolves on Saturday. Despite acknowledging the defensive vulnerabilities of Nottingham Forest, Merson’s prediction could potentially underestimate Wolves’ offensive prowess, particularly considering the outstanding form of key players like Matheus Cunha and Hwang Hee-Chan.

The victory against Burnley has bolstered Wolves’ position, and a win this weekend could propel them to 21 points, possibly securing the 10th spot in the table depending on other match outcomes. Wolves enter the game with a sense of confidence, having recently challenged Arsenal closely and secured a midweek win. In contrast, Nottingham Forest suffered a resounding 5-0 defeat against Fulham in their previous match.
