According to the 'form book', there's little point Millwall turning up at Molineux tonight.

Wolverhampton Wanderers have not dropped a point at home since mid-March - poor Millwall have one from seven matches this season and are bottom of Division One.

But they were the last side to win at Molineux on the day when Glenn Hoddle was appointed last December.

They are managed by Colin Lee, the former Wolves manager, and what a place this would be for Lee to earn his first win as Millwall boss, especially as he hopes to have two more Wolves old boys on show.

Adrian Williams signed on a three-month loan yesterday from Coventry City and Jermaine Wright last night looked set to complete a move from Leeds United.

It is nearly five years since Lee was shown the door by Wolves, essentially for disagreeing with his board's financial management. But the self-made property millionaire still has an unerring eye for choosing football clubs reaching the bottom of a downward business curve.

"This was always going to be a very difficult job," Lee said last night while attempting to do player deals in time for tonight's return to Molineux. "I came in initially to help Steve Claridge but I never even got on the training field with him before he'd gone.

"From what I've sussed out, what happened to Steve seemed a decision made before I came.

"It was a bizarre, uncomfortable situation. My name was being spoken about without my even knowing. And, when they offered me the job, I had to be talked into it by my family.

"To make matters worse, they'd not only lost all their best players but everything else on the shelf had gone. And you had to take into account the financial situation, which has been the case at every club I've been at.

"This is different to what I did when I came in at Torquay and Walsall and kept them up because I knew we had to replace players. This team had been demolished over the summer. And we've had a torrid time. But I love coaching. That's my strength and I know there are young players here who, although they are not really ready, I have already improved. But I'm back on the training field, back in football, and I'm thoroughly enjoying it."

Tonight Lee finds himself in the opposite dug-out to a training-ground tactician he has known almost 30 years. Hoddle was among the Tottenham scorers on the day Lee scored four goals on his debut in a televised 9-0 win over Bristol Rovers in October 1976.

Lee, impressed with how his old Spurs team-mate has revitalised his career, said: "He's steadied the ship. And he's doing a good job. You talk about the top six, even the top two, and Wolves come into your mind.

"What he's done is put together a system for the players he's got which is very difficult to break down, but with quality in the right areas that gives them a good chance to win.

"Friends of mine who are Wolves fans were worried about all those draws they had. But not losing builds confidence. And in Kenny Miller they've a player whose form of late has been superb.

"I tried to get him when I was there but didn't have the money. Then again, there's a lot of players I tried to sign for Wolves and didn't get given the money!"
