Every time Wolves are mentioned on TV you hear the words “lowest scorers in the league” in the same sentence.
I’ve been studying the stats and it’s clear that the reason for this is not so much the failure to create chances, put the inability to capitalise on them.
If ever this was summed up in 90 minutes, it was in the 1-0 defeat at Bolton.
Of our 203 shots this season, 75 have been on target. That’s 37 per cent.
Stoke (196) and Hull (192) have had less shots while Birmingham (205) only have a couple more and Sunderland don’t have many more either (216).
However, Stoke’s on-target percentage is 38 per cent while Hull’s is 43 per cent, Birmingham’s is 48 per cent and Sunderland’s is 44 per cent.
We have 21 goals from our 75 on-target shots which is 3.6 shots per goal.
Here are our relegation rivals’ stats – Hull 3.3, Bolton 3.5, Burnley 3.7, Pompey 5.25.
What it tells us is that when we hit the target, we are just as likely to score as the rest of them.
We make enough chances to match up with our rivals too.
Where we are failing though is that we don’t hit the target enough when we’ve created the chance.
