Wolves injury updates before Southampton
When the international break ends, Wolves return to Premier League action with a home match against Southampton.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side will head into the game on the back of four straight wins.
Ahead of the Southampton game, the Express & Star have looked into some of the injury problems at Molineux.
In their last match – a 2-0 away win at Man City – Wolves lost Romain Saiss in the first-half.
Saiss has pulled out of international duty with Morocco as a result.
Will Saiss be fit for the Saints? Wolves fans have been told:
Though the injury is not thought to be serious, Wolves head of medical Phil Hayward yesterday admitted it was not yet clear how much time the 29-year-old may miss.
If Saiss misses out, Ryan Bennett is likely to return to the Wolves XI.
Two other players with injury problems at Wolves are Diogo Jota and Morgan Gibbs-White. The Express & Star report:
Forward Diogo Jota is responding well to treatment on the foot injury which has kept him out since last month’s 1-1 draw at Crystal Palace.
Morgan Gibbs-White is also being assessed by the club’s medical staff, having withdrawn from the England under-21 squad with a back injury.
