With his job publically on the line, will Slade stubbonly stick to his tried and rusted 4 4 2 line up or will his hand be forced? Will the players rise to the challenge and play for the Boss?

Wolves are on a run, with four consecutive wins, a great habit which City have failed miserably to achieve this year.

Lose this one and I hope that the club moves to get rid of Slade immediately, not in two weeks.

Hate to admit to a defeat, but 0 - 2 Wolves.

I hate to admit I kind of want us to lose - for the greater good of Slades P45.

I have mixed feelings about this. I think Slade is on the brink but that any half decent results will simply give Tan an excuse to keep him on longer. I'm trying not to want a defeat but I won't be disappointed if another poor performance precipitates action being taken.
2-0 to Wolves.

I'll be shocked if he doesn't change things around this afternoon in terms of the starting line-up.

Deja vu a repeat of 1954/55 9-1 to Wolves, only difference from then is that game was played at Ninian Park and in the top division.

Marshall
Peltier, Connolly, Manga, Malone
Noone, O'Keefe, Ralls, Whittingham
Pilkington
Mason

A 4-4-1-1! Thats almost a formation change! Sort of!

Oh, and Watt is completely missing from the squad. Considering he was still eligible until the end of the month, I don't think that means an extension is looking that promising.

I am pretty sure that Watt tweaked a hamstring against Hull, which is why he went off. Today's selection is essentially who is still fit.

Watt's loan runs out after today so I don't think we'll see him again. Mason isn't strong enough to play up front on his own.

Two good chances already, we look like we're doing well. Of course what normally happens now is the opposing manager will have a tactical rethink at half time while Slade wonders what's for tea leading into us having our a*ses kicked in the second half, so we'll see...

Gunnarrson has arguably been one of our best players this season. Not sure if that's a positive or a negative however...

1-0 up! Wonderstrike from Noone apparently.
