Saturday evening’s clash with Tottenham Hotspur continues to draw ever closer for Wolverhampton Wanderers and head coach Nuno Espirito Santo.
Back to back defeats in recent Premier League matches against Brighton and Hove Albion and Watford haven’t really dampened spirits in the fanbase, least not amongst those who have seen far darker days at the club, but it has highlighted a clear concern as that is obviously the rate to which we find the back of the net as although Raul Jimenez gives us work rate and brings other people into play, the 27-year-old does need somebody to lighten the load as he’s only netted twice for us so far this season.
Other forwards at the club have their own issues.
At the beginning of the week we had a clean bill of health and although Santo isn’t one for chopping and changing his starting XI as we’ve already seen this year particularly, should he choose to do something different everyone is fit and can be called upon.
Hopefully, that won’t change in the next 48 odd hours and he won’t have to make any last minute adjustments to his plans on Saturday as returning to winning ways would boost everyone and bring an end to the overreaction from some in media.
The less said about the ridiculous kick off time is probably for the better though.
