Suspension drama as daring defensive decision made - Wolves predicted XI vs Nottingham Forest - gallery

Here’s how we predict Wolverhampton Wanderers’ starting lineup to look against Nottingham Forest in the Premier League on Saturday.

Wolverhampton Wanderers are back in Premier League action on Saturday afternoon with a trip away to Nottingham Forest. Refreshed after the international break, Julen Lopetegui will be hoping his side can bounce back from the heavy 4-2 defeat to Leeds United that camed it.

The end of the season is fast approaching - with just 10 games for Wolves to play - but it is far from over with a mere four points separating 20th and 12th as it stands. It is one of the most hotly-contested relegation battles in Premier League history and Wanderers are well amongst it.

Saturday’s clash is a huge six-pointer with the result having ramifications for every team in the bottom nine. If Wolves win, they would move six points clear of the drop but a defeat could see them in serious danger with every team below them - bar Everton - having played fewer matches.

Quite a few players are expected to return from injury this weekend with the two-week break doing Lopetegui plenty of favours. With that in mind, here is the starting XI we think Wolves will go with at the City Ground. See below.
