Predicted Wolves Line-up To Face Bristol City In The EFL Championship

Wolverhampton Wanderers will look to continue their strong start to the season, when they face Bristol City at the Molineux Stadium, in the EFL Championship, on Tuesday night.  

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men sit 3rd in the Championship table, after six rounds of fixtures, with 13 points, having registered four wins, along with a loss and a draw. They come into the game on the back of a 1-0 win over Millwall during the weekend, and the manager will be hoping his team add another three points to their tally, on Tuesday.

Team News 

Defender Willy Boly is set to miss out again for Wolves due to injury along with right-back Phil Ofosu-Ayeh and goalkeeper Carl Ikeme. Helder Costa too is unlikely to be involved.

Here’s how Wolves could line up against the Robins on Tuesday night.

Manager: Nuno Espirito Santo 

Formation: 3-4-3 

John Ruddy (GK) 

The former Norwich City man has kept four clean sheets in six games this season. Undisputed first-choice between the sticks.  

Conor Coady (CB) 

Has transitioned seamlessly into the role of a centre-back and has played an important role in the results. Should be another start for him.

Danny Batth (CB)

With Boly still missing, the captain of the club should make his second league start of the season, in the heart of the defence.

Roderick Miranda (CB) 

The former Rio Ave man has impressed since joining the club in the summer. Set for his seventh start in the Championship.

Matt Doherty (RWB) 

The Irishman is another who has featured in every game from the start of the season for the Wolves and another start beckons for him in the right wing-back role.

Ruben Neves (CM) 

The statement signing of the summer is living up to the price-tag with some solid displays in the middle of the park. Should feature from the kick-off. 

Ruben Neves

Romain Saiss (CM) 

Has been the ideal partner for Neves in the midfield and should get the nod for the clash against the Robins on Tuesday.

Ruben Vinagre (LWB)

The loan signing has done well in the absence of Barry Douglas for the last two games and should continue at left wing-back. 

Bright Enobakhare (RW) 

The 19-year old has enjoyed plenty of game time under Santo this season. After making an appearance from the bench over the weekend, he should start against Bristol City, with Ben Marshall dropping out. 

Leo Bonatini

Leo Bonatini (ST) 

The focal point of the attack should be the 23-year old Leo Bonatini. Has found the back of the net on two occasions so far and will be keen on adding more.

Diogo Jota (LW)

On the left-side of the attacking trident should be Wolves’ weekend hero, Diogo Jota. Scored the only goal of the game against Millwall, and will want to continue on a similar note.
