Wolverhampton Wanderers face Derby County on Wednesday in what is expected to be a cracker of a midweek clash. The Championship leaders have a solid lead of 9 points at the top and a win against Derby will only further put them in comfort zone.
With the season coming to an end, Nuno Espirito Santo’s men must aim to finish as strongly as they started, making this game a must-win!
However, Derby are quite solid and they will be looking to cause a nasty upset at Molineux.
Ruddy should be coming into this game on a high. He made some crucial saves against Cardiff and is likely to retain his spot between the sticks.
Boly has been one of the club’s most solid defenders this season and his power at the back will prove to be crucial against Derby.
Bennett is expected to hold on to his spot at the heart of the defence.
The three-man backline is likely to be completed by Coady, who has established a formidable partnership with Bennett and Boly in recent times.
Douglas will be looking to establish control in this area to keep trouble from Derby at bay and his pace will certainly prove to be useful.
Doherty put in an impressive performance against Cardiff and is expected to take up the right wing-back position this week.
Saiss’ ability to dictate the pace of the game can prove to be lethal and he will have to be at his best to dominate his Derby counterparts.
Neves marked his return to the starting XI with a legendary performance against Cardiff and he is a sure starter for the upcoming game as well.
Jota put in a fine performance against Cardiff and it is important for him to provide a lethal attacking presence against Derby as well.
Afobe started on the right-wing against Cardiff but he was delightful to watch and is likely to continue there.
Bonatini can be a menace going forward and he is likely to lead the line this week.
