Apart from a stunning 3-2 win over champions Manchester City in December, the Wolves haven't had a good time of late, losing 0-1 to League toppers Liverpool and succumbing to relegation side Watford 1-2 at Vicarage Road.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have been guilty of squandering too many chances to score.
Adama Traore, Raul Jimenez, Pedro Neto and Diogo Jota have been far below their best when it comes to finishing despite combining brilliantly upfront.
That's been their feature for the past three games (that included a goalless draw with Manchester United in a FA Cup game) where the Wolves found the back of net just once.
They are now hoping that Saturday's clash with Newcastle at the Molineux stadium will present them with their first win after going through three games without one.
The Wolves are in danger of slipping out of the Top 8 if they cannot win this one with 8th placed Sheffield United and 9th placed Crystal Palace just one and two points behind them.
Newcastle head coach Steve Bruce has been boosted by the return to training of six players from their injury problems.
Fabian Schar, Javier Manquillo, Jonjo Shelvey and Jetro Willems all of whom had to leave the field during the Leicester game owing to various injuries could be sidelined on Saturday for the Molineux game.
However, Paul Dummett, Ciaran Clark, midfielder Miguel Almiron and forwards Dwight Gayle and Andy Carroll are all back in training and can be expected in action on January 11.
Club captain Jamaal Lascelles, who fractured his tibia against Bournemouth in November, is also expected back on the training ground, while winger Allan Saint-Maximin hads almost recovered from a hamstring tear.
The Magpies have gone through three Premier League outings without a win, in fact, lost all of them and will be willing to break the spell at the Molineux.
Steve Bruce's men who managed to break into the Top half in December are now in the 13th spot after 21 games.
Wolves v Newcastle Verdict
Newcastle haven't been able to win against the Wolves in all of their 4 encounters since December 2018, losing two of them in fact, one by a margin of 0-4 in the Premier League Asia Trophy in China in July 2019.
So, the new UK bookmaker odds are stacked heavily against the visitors as seen by the figures below.
But Newcastle have that element of surprise in them as they demonstrated in their 2-2 draw against Manchester City and wins over Top half clubs Manchester United and Sheffield United earlier in the season.
But for that, Bruce will need his go-to man Jonjo Shelvey to be completely fit and firing.
