PREVIEW: WOLVERHAMPTON v SHEFFIELD (Prem)

WOLVERHAMPTON mark 94 years to the day since the first meeting at Monmore Green in tonight’s (Monday) Premiership clash with Sheffield.

The home side are back at full strength with Leon Flint returning at reserve, with Ryan Douglas set to race after aggravating a shoulder injury on Friday.

The Tigers have won all three of their league matches so far, and were also successful at Monmore in the League Cup – a result which Wolves equalled at Owlerton ten days ago.

Wolves skipper Sam Masters said: “We can take a lot of confidence from that win at Sheffield the other week.

“We know they’ve already come to our place and won once this season but that was our first meeting as a team, we all had a few teething problems, and I think if they’d have come a little bit later, the result would’ve been different.

“So now’s the chance to show that, but we know how strong they are so we’re all going to need to score some points to get that win we need and want.”

Tigers boss Simon Stead said: “It’s always a really tough ask going to Wolverhampton. But if we continue to ride how we are doing then there’s no reason why we can’t get a result.

“We’re feeling really positive, but we’ll show Wolverhampton and Peter Adams’ men the respect that they deserve because they’re a very, very good outfit.”

WOLVERHAMPTON: Sam Masters, Steve Worrall, Luke Becker, Ryan Douglas, Nick Morris, Drew Kemp, Leon Flint.
SHEFFIELD: Jack Holder, Craig Cook, Tobiasz Musielak, Kyle Howarth, Adam Ellis, Stefan Nielsen, Connor Mountain.
