Wolves v Brighton match preview

Date: Sunday 9th May
Kick off: 12.00
Venue: Molineux


On Sunday Wolves welcome Brighton to Molineux.

Last season both games against the seagulls ended all square and the reverse fixture this season also ended in a 3-3 draw. So there is really no reason to believe that this game will be any different.

Brighton come into the game on the back of an excellent 2-0 home win over Leeds.
Now occupying 14th place in the table they have distanced themselves from the relegation zone.

Wolves followed their worst performance and arguably their worst result of the season with an away 1-1 draw against Black Country rivals West Brom and with their best performance for weeks.

Due to more injury and illness in the ranks, Nuno was forced to make several changes for the Black Country derby, giving starts to 4 under 23 players, none of whom looked out of place.
Reverting to a back 4 made for much more possession based, entertaining football.
In the light of the performances of the youngsters it’s likely that Nuno will go with the same set-up and the same starting 11 again.

Win or lose this game Wolves will remain in 12th place in the table.

The game will be shown live on BBC 1

Some goal, he could see the goalie was off his line, I am in priority group 4 so stuffed I assume, as I usually am when trying to get an away ticket

Just over 10,000 have come through the ballot. 30%. Of capacity. They have split those people into four groups while they wait for government confirmation on Monday of how many they can admit. The original expectation was a limit of 25% capacity so that would mean priority groups 1,2 and 3 should be ok if that’s confirmed. Those in group 4 will either need the government to allow a higher % or need some in the first 3 groups to not end up buying a ticket

Difficult decision with Mir who is clearly turning into a top centre forward. Either we keep him or cash in with his value having increased enormously. Be a shame for Fabio if he is relegated to 3rd choice when it looks like he could be ready to get more chances. Key will be what Mir wants. And I suspect he will want to take up offers that will be on the table from some of the bigger spanish clubs

5 changes then with Saiss, Dendoncker, Traore and Semedo on the bench. Otasowie not in the squad.

That's a bit more encouraging, had expected more to have entered the ballot. 25% would be around 8000 then I guess.

Yes just under 8000 if they stick at 25%. I think I saw 7,925 quoted. There was a plan to have 500 away fans but that’s been shelved now
