Wolverhampton Wanderers will be looking to bounce back from defeat when they take on Reading at Molineux Stadium and they could make changes for the match according to a preview by SkySports.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side were hammered by Aston Villa last Saturday in a 4-1 loss, which has seen their lead at the top of the Championship table cut to three points.

With ten games left of the season, the once runaway leaders will now be looking over their shoulders in the final run in to make sure they can secure automatic promotion.

Wolves have only won once in their last five Championship matches, which has included two draws and two defeats.

The Portuguese manager would have been far from happy with the performance of his side at the weekend and he could be forced into making a number of changes ahead of their clash with the Royals.

Benik Afobe could be in line to get a start for Wolves, having been trying to make an impact from the substitutes bench since his arrival from AFC Bournemouth.

The striker joined the Championship outfit on loan on deadline day in the January transfer window and has been relishing the chance to get regular football with his former club.

Nuno could also be tempted to bring Romain Saiss and Ryan Bennett back into the side after both started the game against Villa on the bench.

Carl Ikeme remains an absentee for the home side as he continues to fight his personal batter with Leukaemia, whilst Phil Ofosu-Ayeh continues to remain unavailable with tendinitis.
