Burnley will host Wolves at Turf Moor on Tuesday evening, looking to continue their recent unbeaten run with a positive result at home.

Burnley are 19th in the league table, and they will be desperate to secure safety from relegation as they get set to welcome Wolves to Turf Moor on Tuesday evening. The Clarets are unbeaten in the last three games and it remains to be seen whether they can pick up all three points here.

Meanwhile, Wolves are going through an impressive 2023/24 campaign, but they have been quite mediocre in recent weeks. The Black Country outfit have lost three of the six league games, and it will be interesting to see if they can bounce back strongly.

Wolverhampton Wanderers are currently ten in the league table, and they will be hoping to finish in the top half. They cannot afford to keep dropping points if they want to finish the season strongly.

Wolves picked up a narrow win over Burnley at home earlier this season, and the home team will look to make amends and avenge that defeat here. The Hard Tackle takes a closer look at the encounter ahead of the latest meeting between the two sides.

The 24-year-old Brazilian attacker is expected to return from his injury blow on Tuesday and he is our key player to watch out for. Cunha has been impressive in form this season, scoring nine goals and picking up six assists in the league.

He will look to make a big difference in the final third with his goalscoring ability and creativity. The former Atletico Madrid striker will look to link up with his teammates and open up the Burnley defence.


Burnley 1-2 Wolves

Burnley have been difficult to beat in the last few league games, and they will look to make life difficult for the opposition here. However, Wolves have the better team on paper, and they should be able to grind out a positive result. They have been quite mediocre in recent weeks, and the away fans will expect a strong reaction from the players here.
