Wolves bring behind closed doors experience to Irons clash


Wolves danger man Ruben Neves isn’t looking forward to laying behind closed doors again so soon after experiencing it in Greece ahead of lockdown.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side look to pick up where they left off ahead of the break when they arrive at the London Stadium for the clash against the Hammers.

But the behind-closed-doors experience in the Europa Cup clash against Olympiacos isn’t isn’t one which seems particularly appealing to Neves after the Greek experience.

He said: “It is hard to explain. We are used to playing in loud places with a lot of fans, and now it’s just like on the warm-up.”

The midlands outfit like ourselves are set to play in an empty Molineux and are hoping to sort our a couple of friendly matches before travelling to London.
Currently sitting sixth in the table – just five points behind fourth-placed Chelsea – Nuno’s charges have been back in contact training at Compton since last Thursday, and they can now go over game-like scenarios.
It will clearly be a tough game with the Hammers in a relegation battle and Wolves looking to nail a Europa Cup place.
