West Brom v Wolves: match preview

West Brom begin the weekend nine points adrift of safety after conceding an agonising late equaliser at Villa Park – and their survival prospects may be even bleaker by Monday. “We’d have liked to have given ourselves a better chance,” Allardyce admitted this week. This is an opportunity to keep hope alive against opponents they beat 3-2 at Molineux in January, and who slumped to a dismal 4-0 home defeat against Burnley last week. Nuno Espírito Santo has revealed his side have “many injury problems” going into the derby game but declined to go into details – “that would be an advantage to our opponent.” The Wolves manager will demand a reaction from his players to Sunday’s performance, which he succinctly described as “terrible”.
