Match preview

Two of the Premier League’s bottom three go head-to-head, as East Midlands takes on West Midlands in a crucial game.

Wolverhampton Wanderers are still without a manager, having parted company with Bruno Lage a fortnight ago.

Since then, reportedly, Julen Lopetegui, Rúben Amorim and Pedro Martins have all turned down the job, as the search, primarily consisting of Jorge Mendes clients, continues.

Last weekend, under caretakers James Collins and Steve Davis, Wolves were swatted aside 3-0 by Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

This means they’ve still scored just three goals all season, losing each of their last three without finding the net.

As a result, the Wanderers have slipped into a very Midlands-centric looking relegation zone.

On Monday night, Nottingham Forest edged off the foot of the table, climbing one point above near-neighbours Leicester.

The Reds were held to a 1-1 draw by fellow strugglers Aston Villa, taking the lead through Emmanuel Bonaventure Dennis’ header.

This did, at least, stop the rot, with Steve Cooper’s side having lost five on the bounce beforehand, but their sole win remains the success over West Ham nine weeks ago.

Who will claim three precious points at Molineux?

Wolverhampton Wanderers team news

James Collins will serve the third of his three-game ban here, meaning he will be available for Tuesday’s trip to Crystal Palace.

For now, Toti will continue alongside Max Kilman at centre-back; Yerson Mosquera is the alternative.

In good news, Rúben Neves is available again, after serving his one-match suspension at Stamford Bridge.

He’ll rejoin João Moutinho and big-money summer signing Matheus Nunes in midfield.

Up front is obviously Wolves’ biggest issue, with Raúl Jiménez sidelined and Saša Kalajdžić having suffered an ACL injury 45 minutes into his debut.

So, a clearly unfit Diego Costa could continue to lead the line, chosen over Hwang Hee-chan.

Nottingham Forest team news

Steve Cooper switched to a back four on Monday night, so could match-up Wolves in that regard.

Neco Williams was left out for the first time since joining the club in that one, but could displace Serge Aurier at right-back.

Moussa Niakhaté isn’t fit yet, so Steve Cook and Scott McKenna are set to continue at centre-back.

Alternatively, Willy Boly could feature against the club he left just 44 days ago.

Jesse Lingard’s poor performances saw him dropped on Monday, with another former Wanderer, Morgan Gibbs-White, set to start instead.

Up front, Taiwo Awoniyi is the only Forest player to score a winning goal this season, but Emmanuel Bonaventure Dennis could get the nod, after opening the scoring against Leicester.
