Wolves were made to settle for a goalless affair with Manchester United just before the winter break, a game in which they showed brilliance in batches, taking the game to their opponents at Old Trafford.
Though they remain with just one win in eight games, they are expected to put up a significant measure of resistance when they host Leicester who themselves have won just twice in their last seven.
Moreso, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are still in the mix for an European competition slot, and can move as high as sixth with a victory here, and within three points of fourth-placed Chelsea.
Leicester City equally drew 2-2 with Chelsea, and the break couldn’t have come at a better time as the Foxes have not been at their very best for the better part of the year.
They have lost to Aston Villa and drawn with the Blues in their last pair of games, the latter coming in the Premier League. Ben Chillwell and Harvey Barnes scored second half goals in that cracker, but a brace of headed goals from Antonio Rudiger pegged them back on home turf.
Brendan Rodger’s will hope the effect of the break rub off on his tiring team, and help keep them in shape during the course of the season’s run in.
Adama Traore appeared to have dislocated his shoulder in the draw with United, but Nuno will be desperate to have him available here.
Rúben Vinagre is ruled out with injury.
Neither of Wes Morgan, Daniel Amartey, Matty James and Namaplys Mendy will suit up for the trip to Molineux.

The reverse fixture between the two sides played out goalless but this meeting should have goals to spice it up. Both teams to score on the day thus, have an appeal and is prized 4/5.
