‘I just hope’ Wolves fans will love these comments by Crystal Palace boss Roy Hodgson
Roy Hodgson is sure that Wolverhampton Wanderers will find some form – but he hopes it is after Sunday!
The Crystal Palace boss was speaking ahead of the two sides meeting at Selhurst Park, with Wolves looking for their first Premier League win of the season.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side come into the game having lost their last three encounters in all competitions, including their Europa League group stage opener against Braga.
But Hodgson is insistent that although the results are not there, Wolves are playing every bit as well as last season.
“They have obviously not got the start they would have wanted,” Hodgson said. “They have had a few disappointing results and I am sure they will be upset about the cruelty of fate.

“I watched the (Braga) game and if a team was going to win, I thought it would be them, so to come away from that with a defeat will be a bitter blow.
“But it shouldn’t affect their confidence as a team, because I thought they played very well and that they are playing every bit as well, watching the game, as they did last season.
“I fully expect them to get points in the bag very soon, because they are a strong side, but I just hope they will wait until after our game on Sunday to do so.”
The two sides exchanged wins last campaign, with Wolves coming out on top at Selhurst Park, whilst Palace dominated a dour Wolves at Molineux in January.
