Wolves and Leicester City will look to enhance their respective European hopes when they meet at Molineux on Friday night.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have slipped to ninth in the table but remain just four points behind fifth-placed Sheffield United and six points adrift of Champions League football.
Leicester, meanwhile, can move 13 points clear of fifth with a win here and will very much feel like three points can all but secure Champions League football next season.

Ones to watch
Wolves: Willy Boly
Manchester United’s Anthony Martial and Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Willy Boly (right) battle for the ball during the Premier League match at Molineux, Wolverhampton.
Willy Boly returned to action against Manchester United and his presence could play a defining role in the ever-tightening race for European football.
Sheffield United lead the pack just outside the top four thanks to their superior defence, outlining just how important strong centre-backs can be in Premier League success.
Key stat:Boly made more interceptions (4) than any other player on the pitch during Wolves’ 0-0 draw with Manchester United.
Leicester City: Jamie Vardy
Despite still sitting atop the Premier League scoring charts, Jamie Vardy hasn’t netted a single goal since Leicester’s 3-1 defeat to Manchester City in mid-December.
That said, the 33-year-old will still have the Golden Boot at the forefront of his thoughts, and Brendan Rodgers needs his top marksman back on form as soon as possible.
Who better for Vardy to get back on track against than one of his traditional bogey teams?
Key stat:Vardy is without a goal in five career appearances against Wolves.
Adama Traore has had the winter break to recover from an injury sustained against Manchester United and is contention to be included among Espirito Santo’s squad here.
“Adama has a lot of people caring for him. It’s a problem, but he’s doing muscular work and taking care. He’s OK,” said Nuno in this week’s press conference.
Ruben Vinagre is out with a hamstring injury.
Willy Boly is fit to start, meaning Romain Saiss and Leander Dendoncker will battle it out for the final spot in Wolves’ back three.
Predicted XI:Patricio; Dendocker, Coady, Boly; Doherty, Moutinho, Neves, Jonny; Traore, Jimenez, Jota.

Wilfred Ndidi is still struggling with a knee injury, but Rodgers should have the Nigerian midfielder available here.
Wes Morgan, Daniel Amartey and Namaplys Mendy are all sidelined.
Predicted XI:Schmeichel; Pereira, Evans, Soyuncu, Chilwell; Ndidi; Perez, Tielemans, Maddison, Barnes; Vardy.
Neither side has been overly convincing in recent weeks but on their day, they both have the firepower to beat the best of them.
With Leicester safely tucked away in the Champions League places, this game arguably means a lot more to Wolves, but the Foxes should be good value for a draw in what could be an entertaining match.
