Preview: Wolverhampton Wanderers

2 October 2012


ABOUT:
Tonight's encounter will see two of the Championship's in-form teams collide when Palace travel up to Molineux to take on a Wolves side who have strung together four straight league wins, include three clean sheets on the bounce.

Stale Solbakken has enjoyed a great start to his time in Staffordshire, and has guided his side to third in the table as they aim for an instant return to the Premier League following last season's miserable campaign under Mick McCarthy and Terry Connor.

Saturday saw them beat Sheffield Wednesday 1-0 thanks to a Bakary Sako free-kick, whilst Sylvain Ebanks-Blake continues to score goals for the club, with four to his name so far this season.


TEAM NEWS:
Wolverhampton Wanderers: Razak Boukari suffered a calf injury against Sheffield Wednesday and will be out for a month, and joins Stephen Hunt and Georg Margreitter and the sidelines who are both out with hip problems.
Crystal Palace: Paddy McCarthy faces a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a groin injury, whilst Peter Ramage missed Saturday's win at Bolton with a thigh problem. Danny Gabbidon is still searching for match fitness.
