After losing to Norwich City on Saturday, tonight has been about responding for Wolves, and keeping the good league form going.

Bruno Lage made five changes to the team that lost to Norwich, with the likes of Jose Sa, Romain Saiss and Raul Jimenez all coming back in.

Someone else who started the game was Francisco Trincao.

The winger was unable to face Norwich due testing positive for Covid-19.

He started on the right wing, but struggled in the game, particularly with his crossing.

In the 33rd minute, the on-loan star from Barcelona overhit two crosses in quick succession.

Ward said on commentary for BT Sport: “Trincao is so frustrating for this Wolves crowd. He does everything. he does the hard bit, gets himself a yard of space. But that final ball, right or left foot, is ridiculously bad at the moment.”

But the end product has been sorely lacking during his time at Wolves so far.

If he is going to secure a permanent transfer to Molineux, that side of his game simply has to improve.
