As per BBC Sport, Wolverhampton Wanderers will be without ‘injured pair’ Willy Boly and Morgan Gibbs-White for their trip to Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday afternoon.

Boly has made 16 appearances in all competitions for Wolves this season, the last of which came against Southampton in mid-October. The 28-year-old has missed the last six Premier League games, having undergone surgery on his left fibula, so he’ll need more recovery time before returning to the squad.

In his absence, Nuno Espirito Santo has called upon Romain Saiss, Conor Coady, Leander Dendoncker, Max Kilman and Ryan Bennett, so Wolves have coped well with the centre-back’s loss.

How will Wolverhampton Wanderers fare against Brighton & Hove Albion?

Yes

Yes

No

No

As for Gibbs-White, the 19-year-old has been out of action since early November with a back injury, missing Wolves’ last four games. He wasn’t a regular this season anyway, making just three appearances in the league, so Nuno won’t lose much sleep over his absence with Ruben Neves and Joao Moutinho available.

The Midlands outfit are coming off the back of a 10-game unbeaten run and have picked up nine points from their last five away outings, so it’s proof that Nuno’s men have coped well in Boly & Gibbs-White’s absence.
