Raul Celebrates A Record

Bournemouth are the visitors to Molineux for Wolves first home game of the restarted season, and they will know it will be a difficult challenge for them to return to the South coast with any points.

Nuno Espirito Santo takes his team into this game on a high after an excellent win at West Ham in Wolves first restart game at West Ham on Saturday, which saw Raul Jimenez break the record for Wolves goals scored in the Premier League with his goal, and a superb left footed volley smashed into the net by Pedro Neto for a 2 - 0 win. Bournemouth fared less well in their first game back, losing 0 - 2 at home to Crystal Palace. Nuno will be hoping for three points tonight and for Man United to lose or draw at home to Sheffield United which would see Wolves leap into 5th place in their own right.

In his pre-mach online press conference Nuno has declared a fully fit squad but also showed his usual respect to his opponents saying that it will be a very difficult game. We wonder whether, following their success after coming on as subs on Saturday there will be starting places for Traore or Neto, and whether Ruben Vinagre or Daniel Podence will get a chance during the game.

The game coincides with three other matches at 18:00 hrs this evening and will be screened by BT Sport 2. Unfortunately there are no pubs open to go and watch it in, so those of us without BT Sport will have to try other means to access it.

Our referee will be Michael Oliver for his third game since the restart.

This board will endeavour to provide regular updates on the progress of the game for the benefit of those unable to watch it, and board members are encouraged to post their own observations.
