Latest injury news ahead of Wolves v Blackpool in the EFL Carabao Cup.

Wolves are unlikely to risk Hwang Hee Chan in their Carabao Cup clash against Blackpool at Molineux on Tuesday night. Hwang was forced off on Saturday at half-time in Wolves' 1-0 win over Everton, and it emerged that he had suffered a hamstring problem.

Hwang felt his hamstring in the first half so we were forced into that one," said O'Neill when questioned about the decision to bring off the South Korean at the weekend. It is his third hamstring issue that he has suffered since his arrival, and it is unsure how long he could be out for.

Gary O'Neil was unable to call upon Matheus Nunes on Saturday because of suspension, and he is unlikely to feature against Blackpool tonight. He was fined after missing training amid reports of transfer interest from Manchester City. Wolves had training on Sunday and Monday, but it is claimed that the 25-year-old was not present, and are now expecting an improved offer from the Premier League champions to try and secure his services.

O'Neil has made it clear that he would like his team to go and a cup run and is aware that there is an expectation of a victory this evening. He is expected to make a few changes to freshen up the side, and that could include the likes of Daniel Bentley replacing Jose Sa, as well as match-winner Sasa Kalajdzic getting a start.

Meanwhile it has been confirmed that Bendaguz Bolla will spent the 2023/24 season out on loan at Swiss Super League side Servette. The 23-year-old right-back had not featured in any of the match-day squads so far this season.

As for Blackpool, Shayne Lavery is set to miss out having been substituted off at the weekend with a tight hamstring, according to the Blackpool Gazette. He is their top scorer this season after an opening day brace but since then the Tangerines have struggled to score. Summer signing Kyle Joseph is ruled out too with a hamstring problem which will see him sidelined for the next months.

Former Aston Villa assistant Neil Critchley is also unable to call upon Jordan Rhodes because he is cup tied, meanwhile Jordan Gabriel is recovering from an ankle injury that he sustained last term.
