Wolves skipper Coady: Let’s give Brighton the blues

Wolves v Brighton preview – Hughton admits to toughest time yet

Chris Hughton has admitted he is facing the toughest time of his managerial career as his Brighton side prepare to face Wolves on Saturday.

Boss Hughton says he faces a critical time to drag his side clear of…

Traore can become Wolves’ Zaha – Ndah

Wolves should stick with Adama Traore because he can become their main man – just like Wilfried Zaha at Crystal Palace. That’s the verdict of George Ndah, who knows a bit about pacy forwards. Having played for both clubs, Ndah has watched both players at close quarters and has been excited by Traore. The Spaniard was until recently Wolves’ £18m record signing before he was overtaken by £32m Raul Jimenez. But the jury remains out on him as he strives for the consistency to match his electric pace. Head coach Nuno Espirito Santo hasn’t found him a regular place in…

The 21-year-old left-sided defender has travelled with the first team squad to their warm weather training camp in Marbella after impressing the head coach in training and in the Under-23s games.

Birthday boy Leander Dendoncker admits Wolves must stop giving away early gifts if they are to end the season on a high. Nathan Redmond scored for Southampton after just 94 seconds on Saturday as Wolves ended up losing 3-1 at St Mary’s.

Dendoncker, who turned 24 today, confessed conceding early is costing Wolves dearly. “They got the first goal way too quickly and…
