    Huddersfield Town manager David Wagner is confident his struggling side will start scoring more as they prepare to take on high-flying Wolves at Molineux on Super Sunday.

    Nineteenth-placed Huddersfield have scored just six times in 12 games so far this season - the lowest in the Premier League - but Wagner remains unconcerned by their struggles in front of goal.

    "I'm happy that we are creating opportunities. I have a gut feeling we have created more opportunities than we have done in the past," he said.

    "Unfortunately, and there are a lot of reasons why, not just one, we have not been able to use all of them and haven't scored enough."

    Wolves captain Conor Coady explains how his game has developed and improved under Nuno Espirito Santo

    Merson's prediction

    I thought Wolves were outstanding at Arsenal, they took the game to them and embarrassed them at times and Bernd Leno had to have a really good game. They were great, but again, only scored one goal and there have been other games where they were great and did not even score a goal.

    So that is Wolves' problem - they have not got a goalscorer and everybody is looking for one at the moment, even Chelsea. And if they can't find one, how are Wolves going to?

    I expect Wolves to win this as I just do not see how Huddersfield are going to get near them in the passing stakes. The pressure over the game will be too much for them and Wolves will come out winners.

    I do not know if it will be early doors, or late doors, but Huddersfield will not be able to defend for that long. And Huddersfield are really not a keep-the-ball team, they like to get it forward and I just think it will be wave after wave of Wolves attacks, so I'm going to go for 3-0 to Wolves.
