"David Brooks won't be fit, he won't make it either.

"Ryan Fraser will have a late test going into this game."

Wolves – Joao Moutinho

The experienced midfielder, Moutinho’s role will be to exploit any gaps the hosts leave. He will also be challenged to break Bournemouth’s attacking play, something he has proved he is capable of in previous games.

Having created more chances (21), he has also made more tackles (43) than any other of his teammates in the competition this season.
