The game between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Blackburn Rovers in the Premier League on Saturday, 24th April 2010 at 15:00 takes centre stage for FootyMad's preview analysis.
Blackburn R. travel to take on Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Rovers will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 25 and win only 8 of the 42 games.
The last time the two teams met at Wolves was back in January 2004, over five years ago, where the two teams cancelled each other out in an enthralling 2 - 2 draw in a Premiership match.
