Predicted Wolverhampton Lineup To Play Derby County
Having at won 5 games in a row at one stage, Wolves have now taken just 4 points from their last 5 games and now arrive at Pride Park this weekend with another tough task on their hands.
Paul Lambert is simply not able to settle on an XI or even a match day squad in which he can trust. Given the position that they are in, it’s hard to think that they have 20+ players of such great quality.
Wolves are safe now but are at risk of finishing the season with a whimper, while Derby would like to finish on a high before beginning a promotion push next season. The away side will need to be at their best to deny the home side this time and the constant changes to the starting side will not help their cause in truth.
It’s almost impossible to second-guess the Wolves boss, but we guess that he will line-up with the following players in a familiar 4-2-3-1 formation:
Probable Wolves Lineup:
Manager: Paul Lambert
GK – Andy Lonergan
The veteran stopper has been the custodian lately and may well start again in goal.
RB – Conor Coady
The midfielder turned full-back has been a positive for the Molineux side and may get to go again against Derby.
CB – Danny Batth
Back in the side for their defeat against Fulham, the skipper has had a good year and is still improving.
CB – Kortney Hause
Had been developing a good partnership with Batth and as such may be recalled to play alongside him at the expense of Richard Stearman.
LB – Silvio Manuel Pereira
With Matt Doherty injured, Silvio replaced him last time but was substituted. He should start the game this time out.
CM – Jack Price
Started against Huddersfield and may be entrusted with the central midfield spot once again next to the influential David Edwards.
CM – David Edwards
10 league goals this season and the potential for more still to come. Should start in central midfield.
RW – Andreas Weimann
The Austrian has been played all over the front line, but started here against the Terriers and may do so again.
CAM – Ben Marshall
The former Blackburn man looked to be running out of steam in recent weeks but is a big favourite of the manager.
LW – Jordan Graham
The young winger is just back in the team and may get the chance to start this time.
ST – Nouha Dicko
He was dropped for Bodvarsson last time out but Dicko still remains Wolves’ biggest threat from the no.9 position and should get the chance to start at Pride Park.
