Bruno Lage has provided an update on Willy Boly, as Wolves look to this weekend’s game with Manchester United.

The team are on a high after last night’s fantastic 4-0 victory over Nottingham Forest in the EFL Cup second round.

Chris Hughton did put out a young side, but it was still a hugely impressive team performance from Wolves.

They dominated from first whistle, recording 74% ball possession and having 28 shots by the end of the game.

Hopefully the players will be able to take real heart from such a result, as they look to take their first points in the Premier League.

As good as Wolves looked against Leicester City and Tottenham Hotspur, they did lose both games.

It will be another tough game on Sunday against United.

But fans will head in with a great sense of optimism.

 

Lage now has Daniel Podence back available, and it seems another senior player might be in contention to play.

Lage said (Express & Star): “(Willy) Boly has started working for two or three days and I think he needs more time to work, maybe he can be available in the next game.”

Boly has not yet featured for Wolves this season after sustaining a hamstring injury against Real Betis in pre-season.

Boly may not be risked

It is great news that Boly is back in the picture.

He is obviously a brilliant defender when fully fit.

That said, Lage might be reluctant to change things against the Red Devils.

Max Kilman, Conor Coady and Romain Saiss have played all three games so far and done pretty well – especially the former.

It would be no surprise if the 45-year-old named Boly on the bench.
