Wolves manager Bruno Lage has conducted his pre-match press conference ahead of the clash with Leeds United at Molineux tonight.

Lage was asked about Max Kilman, who was left out of Gareth Southgate’s England squad yesterday despite a fine season.

Lage also left Kilman out for a recent game against Watford, which Willy Boly played, before recalling him at Everton.

“Sometimes simple things are so important in football. When you in the focus, and with not a good performance, these things can happen and we have good competition in the group.

“Boly was ready to play so we rested Max and put Boly in. What happened? Boly played very well. It was a massive performance.

“I was very happy and after Max came back in for Everton and the level of Max came again. Sometimes, it is not to have anyone out, it’s to include everyone.

“Now I want both players, before Max was in a bad moment and Boly was not ready to play and now I have two good solutions.”

We are yet to see Boly and Kilman start together in the Premier League this season but maybe the time is coming on that one.

Kilman has played a lot of football this season and he was just given a little bit of time out of the side and the pressure which seems to have worked wonders.

Lage really needs to make sure his side go into the international break with some good momentum by getting all three points tonight.
