Molineux Finale

The final home game of the season sees Wolves welcome Crystal Palace to Molineux for a game which fans will know is a must win for the home team if they wish to achieve Europa League status for next season.


Wolves were pushed down into seventh place in the Premier League by Spurs after their impressive 3-0 victory over Leicester yesterday, however three points from this evening's game would restore the status quo, and take everything to next Sunday's final games of the season. So a repeat of last week's comprehensive defeat of Everton would be great result for Wolves, especially after the disappointment of being robbed of two points by poor refereeing and VAR decisions at Burnley midweek.


Daniel Podence has made a very positive impact on the team in the last two matches and it's reasonable to expect that he will also start tonight's game - in fact Nuno may well to continue with the Burnley starting eleven which was a very solid attacking line-up. Palace will be without the suspended Benteke and injured full back Van Aarnholt. It remains to be seen whether former Wolves keeper Wayne Hennessey will make an appearance.


Tonight's game will be officiated by one of the 'newbie' PL referees Peter Bankes who was particularly poor when taking charge of the home game with Newcastle.


The game will be screened on BT Sports 1 and will kick off at 20:15 Hrs
