Wolves take early promotion challenge to Huddersfield

Sport | Published:

Wolves take their early promotion challenge to Huddersfield on Saturday aiming to make history with a unique club milestone.

Stale Solbakken's side return from the international break seeking to become the first Wolves team in the club's 135-year history to record four successive league away wins without conceding a goal.

Unchallenged victories at Ipswich, Peterborough and Blackburn have put Wolves in with a chance of an unprecedented club first.

Wolves last won four consecutive trips on the road in November 2008, while the following April, they recorded three clean sheets in three straight away wins before Birmingham beat them 2-0. But they have never done it without conceding a goal.

In 1982-83 and 1992-93, Wolves started the season with five successive away shutouts, but not all the games were won.

The last time Solbakken's side leaked an away goal in the Championship was 295 minutes of playing time ago – Peter Whittingham's hat-trick-clincher in the 3-1 defeat at Cardiff on September 2.

David Davis is expected to keep his place in the side with captain Karl Henry suspended for the trip north.
