TalkSPORT pundit Gabby Agbonlahor has given his two pence-worth on today's fixture between Newcastle United and Wolverhampton Wanderers at Molineux.

The Magpies will be looking to put the disappointment of Wednesday's Champions League defeat behind them with a Premier League win on the road today.

Despite a large list of injuries and FIFA getting their paperwork done on Sandro Tonali's worldwide ban in time, Eddie Howe can still field a strong starting XI.

Howe will need to make sure his players are on their game today

Wolves are gaining momentum under Gary O'Neil and will not be a pushover, especially in their own back garden where they recently beat Manchester City 2-1.

Former Aston Villa striker and now TalkSPORT pundit Gabby Agbonlahor definitely doesn't see it being straightforward for the Magpies as he gave his prediction.

Gabby is predicting a tight game between Wolves and Newcastle

“Tricky game for Newcastle.

Wolves have shown – maybe they’re not winning as many games as they should be – but they have shown a lot of fight. Against Villa they showed fight, against Man City, winning at home, they showed fight.

So this is a game where, if Newcastle aren’t bang at it, they could get turned over.

But with the class that Newcastle have got, players in form like {Callum) Wilson, (Alexander) Isak, (Anthony) Gordon, (Bruno) Guimaraes, I think they’ll have a bit too much for Wolves.

So I’m going to 2-1 to Newcastle.”

Gabby adds his name to the growing list of pundits who are expecting a narrow victory for Newcastle, which includes Chris Sutton and Paul Merson.

We'll take it, as a win is a win, and away from home is no time to be fussy about the margins.
