Wolves’ injury boost ahead of Hammers clash

Wolves have been given a huge boost ahead of their clash with West Ham, as goalkeeper Rui Patricio is fit to play, according to the Express and Star.

The 33-year-old has started every Premier League game thus far this season and is set to keep that record up against the Irons.

Daniel Podence could also be fit to play, per the report, after shaking off an adductor issue that has seen him absent since the February clash with Arsenal.

Podence has made 18 league appearances this season, scoring three goals and laying on one assist.
