PREDICTED 11 VS PORTSMOUTH


After a comfortable win against Crewe, the lads face possibly the hardest task of the season so far in a home fixture against Portsmouth.

GK: Lee Burge. He’s still susceptible to the odd lapse in judgement, but a fine run of clean sheets means he’ll keep his place again.

RWB: Lynden Gooch. The American was great against Crewe at wing back, and with O’Nien covering in the centre Gooch may even look to make the position his own.

CB: Tom Flanagan. Injured last week, Parkinson says the Northern Irishman should be okay to play tomorrow and add options defensively.

CB: Bailey Wright. One of the many consistent performers this season, Wright has been outstanding in helping an unsettled back line through games. He’ll have to be at his best to keep out Pompey’s potent attack.

CB: Luke O’Nien. Our versatile midfielder has taken to centre half like a duck to water, potentially carving out a future in the position. He’s got new competition in the form of Dion Sanderson, but this match will probably come too early for the Wolves youngster.

LWB: Denver Hume. Hume saw a lot of the ball on Tuesday but might have to show more defensive awareness in this match in a one-on-one battle with Marcus Harness at times.

CM: Grant Leadbitter. Grant’s coasted through games in this more reserved role, which really suits him at an older age.

CM: Josh Scowen. A man who knows all about running, Scowen’s work rate will prove to be useful tool both offensively and defensively.

CM: Max Power. The combined tenacity of Power and Scowen have helped protect Leadbitter’s legs in a system created by Parkinson to do just that. Bar an injury or suspension, there probably isn’t any way for George Dobson to come back into the side as a starter.

ST: Chris Maguire. We all know CM’s history with Portsmouth and he’ll be hoping to cause problems again on this weekend.

ST: Charlie Wyke. Our number nine is in his best run of form at the club and was unlucky to not be able to claim Tuesday’s own goal. He’s been leading the line and pressing well, not giving away fouls as he usually does.
