Wolves are set to take on Aston Villa on Saturday evening in what is a crunch clash for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.
The Black Country club are currently 12th in the Premier League table with just two wins from their last five outings and will look to react after their 4-1 defeat to Manchester City last time out.
Villa are three places above them in the standings but have two games in hand – as well as three more wins to their name this season.
Speaking to BBC Sport, Lawrenson believes that their performance at the Etihad will galvanise them into gaining three points against their Midland rivals.
He said: “Nuno Espirito Santo’s side were well beaten in the end by Manchester City in midweek but they were still hard to break down. They didn’t get much of a chance to attack against City but, apart from that game, they have had a bit more bite recently too.”
Lawrenson went on to predict that Wolves would beat Dean Smith’s side 1-0 in a closely-fought contest.
Transfer Tavern Verdict
Wolves definitely illustrated glimpses of promises last time out as they went toe-to-toe with the league leaders, which shows why the scoreline was harsh on the visitors.
They can temporarily move into the top 10 with a win as they will have played more than the teams around them, and there is no reason why they can’t do just that.
