How have Wolves been doing?

Bruno Lage’s side will be looking to pick themselves up after a faltering end to the 2021/2022 in which they lost six of their final ten games.

The Midlands club have added just one player, former Burnley defender Nathan Collins, to their squad so far this summer transfer window.

On their recent pre-season tour of Benidorm, Wolves were held to draws by Primeira Liga side Sporting CP and second-tier Portuguese team SC Farense after falling to defeat to Villareal’s reserve side.

Injury news

It will yet be months before there’s a return for Stuart Dallas, who underwent surgery for a thigh injury in May, but Junior Firpo, Adam Forshaw, Luke Ayling and Luis Sinisterra are all expected to be back on the pitch very soon.

Marsch will provide an update on injuries when he speaks to the media ahead of the season opener on Thursday.
