Wolverhampton Wanderers will look to continue their good form against Leeds United this weekend.
Last Saturday’s dramatic comeback victory against Aston Villa was the club’s third in a row in the Premier League, and fourth in five matches.
Bruno Lage’s men are up to 10th in the table now, and things are starting to click.
Many improvements still obviously need to be made.
But things are going in the right direction.
Leeds have struggled so far in 2020/21, but Marcelo Bielsa’s side have some great players who can hurt Wolves.
But Wolves also have lots of dangerous players of their own.
One man who falls into that category and is available for selection again on Saturday is Francisco Trincao.
The loan star from Barcelona was unavailable for the Villa game due to having to isolate after a positive Covid test.
But he’s back training with the group now, with the club releasing some photos this morning.
Prior to his bout of Covid, Trincao had started all but one game for Wolves in the league.
It remains to be seen if he will be brought straight back in against Leeds.
There’s a chance he won’t, with Raul Jimenez likely to come back in, and Daniel Podence and Adama Traore having given good accounts of themselves last time out.
Hwang Hee-chan has also generally done well since his arrival at Molineux.
There’s also the chance Lage could set up with two strikers and three midfielders like against Villa, with width coming more from the wing-backs.
Wolves fans discuss
On social media, fans were pleased to see Trincao back in training.
But it seems many don’t think he should come straight back into start the match:
Would rather see more of Podence he looked good against villa feel like he needs more game time

Proven to me that the only player essential to start is Raul, followed at the moment by perhaps Neves. Have no problems with any of the other main contenders.

Definitely not bench warmer until he toughens up like Neto did…🧡🖤🐺

Not straight in if he’s just had covid but I’d bring him on at some point
