Despite the fact they are doomed to return to Division One after just one season back in the top flight, Wolves approach this match in as good form as they have been all season - unbeaten in their last 4 games. The Wolves are well up the top half of the current form table, which just goes to show what a brave fight they have put up in the last few weeks. Sadly, they left themselves too much to do. Virtually all season they have languished in the bottom three, but they did manage 15th place in the Autumn.

Ex-Spurs Steffen Iversen has managed just 4 goals this season, but then he has spent a fair amount of time out injured, or just not being good enough for selection. Alex Rae is the top scorer with 8 goals, and Camara is just behind him, with 7 for the season, but 6 in recent weeks. Denis Irwin is scheduled for a great send off, as he has announced his retirement from the game.

Wolves fans will have some great memories of this season, especially the day they beat Manchester United 1-0, at a time when United were still very much in the Championship race. (Not after that day!).

So, it will be party time at Molineaux this Saturday, when you can guarantee the home side will be determined to finish with a win, to prove they are capable of holding their own with the League's best!

Unfortunately, as we all know, Spurs cannot be put in that category, but they too are determined to end on a high. Veterans Poyet, Ziege and Anderton have been released, and now that safety has been secured, surely this will be a game to expose younger talent. Maybe John Jackson will get a start as well as Ricketts. Stephen Carr may return at right back, and Kelly may be needed at left back in place of Taricco, who hobbled off after 11 minutes last week. It would be nice if some of the younger players could be exposed, but there is still 1,000,000 at stake for a potential rise of two places in the table!

Wolves old boys Dean Richards and Robbie Keane will probably be hoping to feature, but Richards may have to sit this one out, whilst Robbie will surely start again. I feel that one thing is for sure - we will not see a repeat of the 5-2 win in December. I find it hard to predict a Spurs win, so I'll go for an entertaining draw.
