After Wolves FA Cup bubble burst at Wembley they now travel to Southampton seeking to re-establish themselves in 7th spot in the Premiership.
After today's game Wolves will be heading back to Marbella in Spain for some more 'warm weather training', to prepare them for the Premier League run-in. Today they will strive for another three points in their ambition to achieve European football next season. However they will face a Southampton team who have visibly responded to the appointment of Ralph Hasenhuttl, and are currently fighting to stay above the bottom three so are likely to be a different challenge from the team managed by Mark Hughes when they visited Molineux in September.
Southampton have scored in each of their last eleven home games, whilst Wolves have failed to keep a clean sheet in an away game since October, so perhaps we can anticipate goals in this game. Wolves currently sit in 8th place in the PL on equal points with Leicester in 7th but having played two games less. Everton and Watford are in close attandance in 9th in 10th, both currently one point behind. So both teams have everything to play for in what should be an interesting game.
This board will hopefully keep members up to date with the progress of the match for those unable to follow it.

Southampton seem to be getting their act together so it will not be an easy afternoon. Hoping that the team have been able to put last week behind them because they will need to be on the front foot to get control of the game.

Afternoon Lupine I agree entirely with you. I think it will be a difficult game for us as they are well motivated considering there situation. They undoubtedly have some dangerous players
As I type Southampton open the scoring through Redmond before I can even find a stream!!
Wolves getting their act together now, forcing Saints back whenever they are in possession, and the extra man in midfield is telling. Redmond takes the impact of a Neves shot on the end of his foot and is hurt.
Joao resorts to a foul to stop Redmond and gets the first yellow card of the game. Redmond is such a fast mover with the ball he is always a risk. Free kick finds Yoshida in the are but it goes wide. 5 mins plus added time to play
Raul gets a yellow card for a foul don Hojbjerg although he didn't actually touch him!
First half whistle goes. Southampton lead due to taking the opportunities they have had, although they have also missed a couple! Boly got a fine header back from a corner, but Redmond found too much space in our area for an easy second goal. Ings is dropping back into midfield to help c relate opportune the Saints. Wolves are playing well, although Jota and Raul have struggled to link up the way we know they can.
A fairly even first half but our defenders need to up their communication. Midfield is crowded and neither Neves or Moutinho able to have any real time to play their usual passing game so forwards being starved of supply.
Vinagre might just liven things up a bit.
Yellow card for Bertrand for clattering Neves in the face.
Great play by Traore for a corner kick. Saints have 9 players in defence now so we have to hope Traore can get behind them. Great opportunity for Raul but he puts it out for a throw in!
MGW replaces Neves who in my opinion is struggling to maintain his high standards these days
3-1.. season over. Im not really interested whether we finish 10th or 15th as they are all the same thing really. Our main hope was to get into Europe which isnt happening now.. time to get away from football until next season. Have a decent summer and see you next season gentlemen.
Rui has been the busier of the two keepers by far. Wolves have been busy but largely toothless list Saints have defended well.
All over and we lose 3 - 1 at Southampton after a poor performance really. We looked to be the better team in the first half despite a poor start, and Boly scored a very good header, but defensive lapses left Redmond and Long the chance to score easy goals.
It will be interesting to see what effect a week in the sun has on our tired looking team
Well that was the most pedestrian performance I’ve seen all season. Not one player stands out for any particular credit and we got what we deserved.
I do find it frustrating to watch the team play the same training ground moves over and over again where is the creativity or flair.
