Wolves v Sheffield United: match preview

·1-min read

Wolves ended a five-match winless streak thanks to Adama Traoré’s last-minute goal at Fulham last week but were struck by another two cruel blows in a luckless campaign. Pedro Neto has already undergone surgery for the knee injury suffered in that match, while Ruben Neves will miss this weekend’s game, at least, after testing positive for Covid-19. Sheffield United have an even longer injury list but this might just be Paul Heckingbottom’s best chance of picking up a point during his time in temporary charge of the Blades. Paul Doyle
