Time at Club:
Wolves are managed by Paul Lambert, with the Scot replacing the sacked Walter Zenga who was axed after just 87 days. It marked Lambert's first return to the dugout since leaving Blackburn Rovers at the end of the 2015/16 season.
Zenga took charge of the club in the summer of 2016, shortly after the takeover from the Chinese consortium. Wolves had been managed by Kenny Jackett but the new owners decided to sack him after three seasons at the helm, before appointing Zenga a day later.
In his first season in charge Jackett led Wolves to the League One title (2013/14), but agonisingly missed out on the chance of a second successive promotion the following season after finishing just outside of the Championship play-offs on the final day. Meanwhile, they ended an inconsistent 2015/16 campaign in 14th.
It is fair to say that Wolves have had a yo-yo few seasons of late. The Midlands club were relegated from the Premier League in 2012 after finishing rock-bottom of the table. It got worse the following campaign after they suffered the dreaded drop for the second season in a row. However, they managed to bounce back by winning the League One title in 2013/14.
Wolverhampton Wanderers have reaped 6 wins in the last 10 games, beating Leeds United, Nottingham Forest, Cardiff City, Fulham, Brentford and Rotherham United. 1 draws against Blackburn Rovers and defeats to Huddersfield Town, Brighton and Hove Albion and Bristol City has seen them score 12 at an average of 1.2 goals per game while shipping 9.
