Norwich looked down and out when they lost 2-1 at home to Leeds United at the end of October, but Daniel Farke managed to deliver a 2-1 victory away to Brentford on November 6 before losing his job as manager.
Former Aston Villa boss Dean Smith came in as Farke’s replacement, and the 50-year-old guided the Canaries to a 2-1 success at home to Southampton last weekend, with Grant Hanley’s 79th-minute effort proving to be the winning goal at Carrow Road.
The back-to-back wins have lifted Norwich off the bottom of the table, and they could potentially go level on points with 17th-placed Leeds United with another victory this weekend.
There is no getting away from the fact that the promoted club still face a serious battle to secure another season at this level, but a win over Wolves would mean that confidence would be incredibly high heading into the trip to basement side Newcastle United on November 30.
Norwich lost both Premier League games against Wolves during the 2019-20 season, though, while they have not overcome Saturday’s opponents in England’s top flight since March 2012.
Wolves will also be full of confidence heading into this weekend’s contest, having recorded a huge 1-0 victory over top-four hopefuls West Ham United on Saturday courtesy of a second-half effort from Raul Jimenez.
The West Midlands club struggled for results in the early stages of the season, losing four of their first five Premier League games, which brought some early pressure on new head coach Bruno Lage.

However, Wolves have now won five of their last seven in the league, losing just once, and the impressive run of form has seen them rise into sixth position in the table.
Lage’s team are above the likes of Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United and sit just four points behind fourth-placed West Ham, which is incredible considering their early-season problems.
Wolves ran out 2-1 winners when they last travelled to Carrow Road in the Premier League in December 2019, while they recorded a 3-0 victory when the two teams last met – at Molineux – in February 2020
