Bruno Lage will be hoping his side continues their good form of recent weeks as they take a trip to relegation candidates Norwich City, who will be looking to make it two wins from two under new manager Dean Smith

Last time out Wolves beat high flying West Ham United by one goal to nil, which saw the midlands side rise to sixth in the table, just four points away from the Champions League spots. It was a brilliant performance from every player and manager Bruno Lage will be hoping that his side can do the same again.

As for Norwich, Dean Smith has one win from one game as manager, a win that has seen his side rise off the bottom of the table. Goals from Teemu Pukki and Grant Hanley secured the comeback against Southampton and Smith will be expecting his players to put up a challenge against a very well drilled Wolves side.

  • Team News

The home side will only be without Christopher Zimmermann who is currently out with an ankle injury and is not expected to return until early December. It is possible we could see an unchanged line up from the Canaries, but the one question mark is over Todd Cantwell and whether he would be a better option that Joshua Sargent.

As for Wolves, Lage will be without Pedro NetoJonnyYerson Mosquera and Willy Boly as they are all sidelined with injury and have been for quite a while. Boly was a question mark coming into the game, but Lage confirmed the centre-half has picked up yet another muscular injury in training.

Daniel Podence who had a very impressive game last time out against West Ham is expected to start, alongside Raul Jimenez and Hwang Hee Chan.

Norwich City (4-3-3): Krul, Williams, Gibson, Hanley, Aarons, Gilmour, Normann, Mclean, Cantwell, Rashica, Pukki.

Wolves (3-4-3): Sa,  Semedo, Kilman, Coady, Saiss, Ait-Nouri, Neves, Moutinho, Podence, Jimenez, Hwang.

  • Previous Meetings

In the most recent fixture, Diogo Jota scored two goals with Jimenez scoring the other to round off a great Wolves performance.

  • Ones to Watch

Pukki is the man that Norwich will be looking towards for inspiration in this game, as he is the main man up top. So far this season Norwich have scored just the seven goals, with four of them coming from Pukki. It will be his job to find a way through a Wolves back three that have only conceded 12 goals all season.

For the visitors it is Ruben Neves who could have the biggest impact on this game in an old gold shirt. The Portuguese maestro has been incredible this season under the new manager and is starting to take up much better positions in advanced areas. His quality on the ball and his ability to pick holes in a defence as leaky as Norwich's has been this season could cause damage.
