Team News: Wolves
Looking at personnel, there is just one fitness concern for the Wolves gaffer Nuno Espírito Santo to be concerned with from an otherwise fully-primed group. Raúl Jiménez (Fitness) will miss out.
Team News: Brighton
Brighton manager Graham Potter has to currently contend with reduced team options. Aaron Connolly (Unknown Injury), Shane Duffy (Knock), Tariq Lamptey (Hamstring Injury) and Solly March (Knock) are names that won’t be on the team sheet.
We feel that Wolves may not find it easy to find the net against this Brighton side who should be able to grind out a win.
We’re therefore expecting a hard-fought 0-1 advantage for Brighton at full-time.
There should be little in it.
