Wolves handed Willy Boly fitness boost

Wolves’ win over Brighton last time out was a refreshing one for the supporters at Molineux.

Nuno Santo decided to experiment and in doing so, they managed to reap the rewards.

The manager looked down his squad list and chose to prepare for next season, handing a number of younger first-team members an opportunity.

In winning 2-1, Wolves fielded the third-youngest starting XI in the entire Premier League this season as youth prevailed over experience.

That said, Nuno will be welcomed by the news that two of his more practised campaigners are fit and ready to play again.

Taking to Twitter in the build-up to their clash with Tottenham on Sunday, reporter Tim Spiers provided a double injury boost for the Midlands outfit.

Who is Wolves' best centre-back?

He claimed that Willy Boly was now back training, while Marcal had fully recovered from his lengthy thigh problem.

The game will probably come too soon for the Brazilian who now faces a late fitness test but there are reasons to be a tad more optimistic about Boly.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference, Nuno said: “Boly has joined the group, he’s working in a normal situation. He still has some individual issues to be able to go all the training sessions at the same level, but he’s really improved.”

The Frenchman had been feeling the after-effects of illness but he looks to have made a sufficient recovery.

It will be a welcome boost to have him back in the team ahead of their clash with Spurs. After all, he is absolutely imperative to their defence.

Romain Saiss has hardly had a inconsistent season but Boly is their rock, a man to be counted upon, especially in the games.

Can you guess these obscure Wolves players? Here's the first one...

His influence has been telling throughout the season. During 16 matches where the centre-back has been absent due to injury and illness, Wolves have only kept four clean sheets.

To have him fit and potentially back in the starting XI for a game against the likes of Harry Kane and Heung-min Son will be huge.

It could still be a rough afternoon for the Wolves backline but this will give them a huge helping hand. The manager will be ecstatic to see his recovery improving.
