A victory for the young Wolves side will see them enter the knockout stages of their first ever European competition.

James Collins’ team will take on Liverpool under a floodlit Molineux on Wednesday evening.

Wolves currently sit bottom of the group with two points after picking up 1-1 draws against Paris Saint-Germain and Athletic Club Bilbao. But they are just one point behind the Reds.

They will now go into their final match of the Premier League International Cup group stages with a winner takes all fixture.

A win will see them not only advance to the quarter-finals but will also see them shoot to top spot above their rivals in Group E.

Defender and vice-captain Dion Sanderson spoke to Molineux News about how important this fixture is for both himself and his team.

On progressing to the next stage:

“It would mean a lot the get into the next stage for myself and the team. As you said, it’s our first European cup and we want to go as far as we possibly can.”

Facing Liverpool as a team:

“We’ve played them a few times now; we know what we are going to come up against. The lads and I have prepared right and have worked hard both on and off the pitch.

“If we do what we have been working on in training then we will win.”

On playing at Molineux:

“It’s always a pleasure to play at Molineux. It’s what you want as a player. Playing under the lights, a big crowd and of course performing to win.

“Playing against PSG, it was a good experience. The support that we had was crazy. We showed great character and hard work all through the game. Being 1-0 down was tough but the boys gave it their all and hopefully we will do the same against Liverpool.”

The game will be available to stream for free worldwide on WolvesTV and the Wolves App.
