Nottingham Forest will be without Willy Boly, Taiwo Awoniyi, and Nuno Tavares due to muscle injuries. Morgan Gibbs-White is doubtful for Nuno Espirito Santo’s team after getting injured against Tottenham.

Wolves boss Gary O’Neil hopes Matheus Cunha can make his first league start since recovering from a hamstring issue. Craig Dawson could return to the squad, but the match may come too soon for top scorer Hwang Hee-chan.


  • Forward Hwang Hee-chan is in the matchday squad for the first time since the end of February following injury, while Rayan Ait-Nouri is also set to be involved.

  • O’Neil said the game against Forest will be “incredibly tough” and added: “When I look at the depth they have and the money they’ve spent, it’s a real surprise that they are where they are.”

  • O’Neil was charged by the Football Association for his behaviour following the controversial defeat by West Ham on Saturday. He said it would “probably be best for him not to comment until the process is complete”.

  • Asked about the club’s frustrations with VAR, O’Neil said: “You can feel it nationally really. Across the whole league there’s been a lot of frustration or disappointment around some of the decisions and the way the season has gone with VAR and other bits and pieces.”

  • He continued: “That’s not to say it’s all bad. There have been some good calls and things that have definitely helped. But not only at Wolves, I would say there is a desire from everybody for the standard of it to improve and I’m sure that goes for the people in charge of it as well.”

  • O’Neil said he speaks regularly with PGMOL chief Howard Webb to discuss incidents in Wolves’ and other clubs’ games, and that Webb is “always open and honest” with his explanations. He added: “I don’t need them to agree with me – it’s not where we’re trying to get it to. It’s just being open and honest, and giving me a good understanding of why decisions are given. We’ve received apologies this year, which I always accept. I understand people make mistakes and it’s no problem as long as there’s an openness and an honesty to the process.”

  • Asked about points Wolves have potentially lost because of contentious decisions this season, O’Neil said: “I don’t blame anybody else or credit anybody else for our league position apart from us. I’m sure there will be many clubs that claim they could be higher without certain decisions.”



  • Nottingham Forest have one victory from their last 10 league games against Wolves (D4, L5) and are winless in all three Premier League meetings (D2, L1).
  • The sides drew 1-1 in this season’s reverse fixture, with Matheus Cunha equalising for the hosts after Harry Toffolo gave Forest an early lead.

Nottingham Forest

  • Nottingham Forest have conceded a league-high 21 goals this season from set-pieces, excluding penalties.
  • Forest have dropped 48 Premier League points from winning positions since the start of last season, more than any other club.
  • No side has lost more top-flight games than Forest in 2024, while only Burnley and Sheffield United have earned fewer points this calendar year.
  • Chris Wood has scored 12 Premier League goals this season, two shy of his career-best figure for Burnley in 2019-20.
  • Anthony Elanga and Chris Wood have six goal combinations in the top flight this season. The only duo with more are Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins and Leon Bailey, with seven.

Wolverhampton Wanderers

  • Wolves have kept just two clean sheets in their last 32 away league games, with the most recent January’s 0-0 draw at Brighton.
  • They are at risk of going four Premier League matches without a win for the first time this season.
  • Wolves have scored 27% of their goals from set-pieces (excluding penalties) this season, the third highest ratio in the league, behind Everton and Luton.
  • They remain the only team in Europe’s top five leagues yet to score a league goal from outside the penalty area (excludes one goal deflected in against Fulham for an own goal).
  • Gary O’Neil is unbeaten in all three of his top-flight games as a manager against Nottingham Forest, including Bournemouth’s 3-2 victory at the City Ground last season (W1, D2).
