Wolverhampton Wanderers entertain Blackpool hoping to push on from last weekends 3-1 victory at Hillsborough.

With a number of players aquiting themselves admirably in the week at varying levels of International, and coming off the back of the seasons first win, spirits are inevetably high.

With both sides happiest in a quick tempo encounter, and The Seasiders' excellent record on the road, there will be little between the two sides.

There is no doubt that the men from the coast can match Wanderers work ethic.

How they deal with Wolves quality is a different matter.

On paper, and now posessing an dazzling array of goalscoring options, and providers, Wolves look the stronger side.

But still undefeated Blackpool are afraid of no one, as they showed in their opening day victory at The Walkers Stadium.

This may well be settled by one moment of brilliance.

Tangerine, or Gold is the question.



Vital Quotes: Mick McCarthy

'I think when a team that has been promoted and kept the majority of the squad together they can have a bit of momentum going into the next season,'

We'll be seen as a big scalp and they play a very high tempo game so we know we're going to have to work hard.'

Wolves Team News:

Mick McCarthy has no fresh injusr yworries ahead of Saturdays match.

Hitman Freddy Eastwood was withdrawn from his Wales debut with tightness in his groin, but is expected to be fit, and Wolves other International stars came through their meedweek national duty unscathed.

Steven Elliot is still some way off full fitness, but winger Matt Jarvis has been given the all clear to return to training following a pre season hamstring pull, but is unlikely to feature.

Player to watch: Freddy Eastwood

3 games, 3 goals, and now sure to be high on any managers list of dangermen.

Blackpool Team News:

Blackpool are set to make a late decision on whether Ian Evatt will return in defence, at the expense of Kaspar Gorkss who made the Championship XI last week.

A late decision will be mad on Gorkks following his midweek subs appearance for Latvia.

Scott Vernon and Keigan Parker are both pushing for a starting place up front and Simon Grayson has yet to call on the services of new signing Michael Flynn

Player to watch: David Fox

The former Manchester United trainee has a vital role. Failure to dominate the midfield and cut off supply against a side with Wolves firepower could prove fatal.
