Wolves vs Preston: How to watch, live stream, kick-off time and team news

Wolves host Preston this evening (August 23) - here’s what you need to know ahead of kick off

Wolves go into this Carabao Cup tie on the back of Saturday’s spirited defeat to Tottenham Hotspur, and they will hope that this tie against lower league opposition will spark their season into life.

Winless in their opening three league fixtures this season, Wolves have only scored one goal - in an opening-day 2-1 defeat to Leeds United - and sit in the relegation zone in 18th place.

They face a Preston side who have had four goalless draws in their opening five Championship fixtures this campaign - the other being a 1-0 victory over Luton Town - so goals have been incredibly hard to come by for the Lilywhites so far. They sit 9th in the league after five games, after keeping five consecutive clean sheets.

With Wolves struggling to score as well, it’s hard to imagine there will be many goals in this encounter.

Preston did win 4-1 away at Huddersfield Town in Round 1, however, so perhaps they save their goalscoring for the cup.

Team news ahead of Wolves vs Preston

Wolves are expected to make changes from the defeat to Tottenham, with players that didn’t start the game in the frame to start this one, such as Adama Traore, Hwang Hee-Chan and Willy Boly.

Chiquinho remains a long-term injury for Wolves.

Preston are also expected to make changes due to the fixture congestion from playing in the Championship, with the league being the main focus for manager Ryan Lowe.

They’ll definitely be without Andrew Hughes, as the defender went off injured during Saturday’s 0-0 stalemate with Watford.
