Wolverhampton Wanderers take a short trip across the midlands tonight to take on Gary Megson's Leicester City, hoping for a re run of last years 4-1 demolition of The Foxes
Gary Megson looks set to name an unchanged squad for tonights match, but ay possibly tinker with his formation.
The Foxes have managed a solitary league win this season and are on their second manager just 7 games into the season, hardly the start Milan Mandric had in mind when he took control at the Walkers Stadium.
Once a potential Wanderers transfer target, the former Saddler has yet to make his mark at Leicester after a bright start to his career. He may not have matured yet, but could still pose problems for Wolves back four
Manager Mick McCarthy has no fresh injury problems to consider.
Stephen Ward has recovered from his knock on Saturday.
McCarthy's main concern being which of his strikers to plump for.
Pressure is mounting to recall Freddy Eastwood, but after publicly backing Andy Keogh and Stephen Elliot may opt to field th same team that started against Pymouth.
Starting to hit form again, Kightly was outstanding at the weekend and could prove too hot to handle for the Faxes defence that has leaked 8 goals in 7 games so far.
Neither team has hit top fprm yet this season, with Wolves fairing slightly better than their midlands cousins, bagging 11 points to Leicesters 7.
Overall, the two sides have met 105 times with the Foxes winning 35 to Wolves 40 since 1906
Next up, it's Coventry at home!
