Two Top Talents

Possibly the biggest game of Wolves' season so far kicks off at Molineux at 8pm this evening. After a very close game recently at Anfield, Wolves have the chance to bring a halt to the Liverpool juggernaut team which has dropped only two points all season, and to jump over Manchester United into 5th place in the League.

When facing the press Wolves Head Coach Nuno Espirito Santo has adopted esxactly the same mantra as he has before all other games, by playing down the importance of the game whilst stressing the need to 'compete'. However he will surely know how importantly fans view this game and the potential chance of making nationwide headlines by inflicting the first defeat on Jurgen Klopp's formidable team this season. Having achieved the 'double' over their closest rivals Manchester City this season, fans will have no doubt that their team can come out of this game with rewards.

 

Two pieces of good news have come out of the camp this week, most notably that defender Willy Boly is back in training with the team, and that striker Diogo Jota may be fit to take part in tonight's game after missing the last four games. Also our first new signing in the January window has been completed, although Ecuadorian Leonardo Campana will initially slot into the Under 23's team and be developed from there. It is still hoped some new faces will be seen for the first team.

 

Senior referee Michael Oliver will be in charge of tonight's game which will be screened on BT Sport 1. 

 

This board will hopefully provide some updates of the progress of the game (although to avoid the risk of interrupted streaming, I will be watching it in the pub!!). Members are encouraged to post their observations for the benefit of those unable to follow it otherwise.
