Wolves head coach Nuno Espirito Santo has revealed several members of his squad are fitness doubts but refused to elaborate on who they are.

The club are already without Rayan Ait-Nouri, Jonny, Marcal and Raul Jimenez, while Romain Saiss remains a doubt.

Leicester are boosted by the return of Jamie Vardy, while Wilfred Ndidi may also be involved.

However, Timothy Castagne, Wesley Fofana and Dennis Praet all remain on the sidelines.

What you're forgetting cinci is that Nuno only went with a back 4 for the the first time against Southampton, due to the fact that Coady couldn't start. What has surprised me is that we continued with it after he came back. Most of us agree that he is better suited in a back 3.

By the way if you think I'm critical of Nuno (which I'm not), you should look in the mirror. I have hardly read a positive comment from you all season.

You are crazy critical of Nuno, he has played 4 at the back ten times this season and you have referred to it as ridiculous, bolloks etc etc. Give the guy a break.

I am positive whenever we deserve praise and critical when we don't, take a look at threads, I don't discriminate, I just live in the real world. It isn't my problem 'some on 'ere' need to pretend we don't have problems right now.

My opinion is that we are best suited to play with a back 3. Sure Nuno has used 4 at the back, but it's not the solution. He's doing as good a job as he can and I believe Fosun are not helping when it comes to transfers in or out.

If he thinks for one minute that Fosun will take control of transfers this summer, I wouldn't blame him if he left.

Up until the Southampton game things were going to plan and when Jimenez got injured, things have gone downhill and not having a settled defense has somewhat tied Nuno's hands. He'll do what he can with the current batch of injuries, but in the long term, as long as Coady is with us, we are far better off playing with 3 at the back.

I will support Nuno as long as he is with us and sure he'll get things wrong from time to time.

However, you constantly bang the same drum week in and week out, so until we get a creative midfield player or two, get used to a more defensive approach until the end of the season.

I'm still not convinced that Nuno wanted either Doherty or Jota to leave the club and it was Fosun wanting to balance the books and also rely too much on Mendes.

"Nuno is doing as good a job as he can wolfie"

"But he keeps playing a back four and I don't think that's the solution wolfie"

"He's had his hands tied cause Fosun have taken control of transfers"

"You need to get it into your thick head that Nuno likes working with a small squad wolfie"

"I support him in that, but until we get another 2 or 3 or maybe 4 creative midfielders in, get used to a defensive set up that doesn't suit us and clearly isn't the solution"

"I support Nuno in everything he does, but he get things wrong from time to time by playing a system were not suited to"

Still sore at being banned under your previous name of Lone Wolf, I see. I'm sure if you get too wound up again and cross the line, the Admins will ban you again.

Seems you’re obsessed with this Lone Wolf fellow! I’ve no idea who he is though. You have mentioned him in all your recent posts?

He has certainly got under the skin of a few on ‘ere though
