Albion face French threat
Albion will have to beware a bit of French flair at Molineux today.
Former Rennes star Bakary Sako, who is of Malian descent, has been a star performer for Wolves this season.
Sako nominally lines up on the left side of midfield in a 4-4-2 set-up but will drift inside or act as an extra striker.
He is a big threat with his delivery at set-pieces.
Wolves boss Stale Solbakken is looking to introduce a more considered way of playing this term.
It is proving to be a bit of a culture shock after the more in-your-face approach of his predecessor Mick McCarthy.
However Solbakken reckons his side are on course and has warned they are close to getting things right at home.
He said: “We are not satisfied with two points from our last five games.
“That’s a disaster for us when you look at the table and see where we were.
“But it’s very important to keep this in perspective.
"I think we are going in a good way. That is maybe stupid to say after we have taken two points in five games but I feel quite comfortable we are going in the right direction.
“The home games have been about killing them off. We have had big chances that could have changed a draw into a victory.”
On-loan winger Jermaine Pennant, who came off the bench in the 2-1 midweek defeat at Hull, could start today.
Sylvan Ebanks-Blake is top league goalscorer for Wolves this term with five while Sako has four to go with his five assists.
