First Impressions

Michael Kightly's recent performances for Wolves have been a major factor in Mick McCarthy's resurgent side remaining unbeaten since they last played West Bromwich Albion.

On that day in January Kightly was cup-tied and had to sit out the 3-0 loss, but there will be no such luck for The Baggies on Sunday.

Earlier this week Kightly talked about the upcoming derby, and his first impressions of the heat stoked up by a black country derby.

'I must admit that coming from Essex I didn`t know too much about the rivalry when I first came here, but it didn`t take long to pick up on it.

'Around here everyone is either Wolves or West Brom and when you go out that`s all they talk about. You get stopped on the streets by people telling you to beat them and telling you how much it means to them. But hopefully we can keep our run going because it`s a really big game for us.' he said.

The importance of Kights in Mick McCarthy's side cannot be overstated.

He can unlock defenses, turn provider or be goalscorer and will be high on Tony Mowbrays list of threats when he scans the Wolves lineup.

It will come as no surprise to anyone at Molineux if it is his name the headlines herald as the star of the Sunday showdown.
