MATCH PREVIEW: Wolves v Middlesbrough

Overview
Wolves host Middlesbrough at Molineux on Tuesday evening (kick-off 7.45pm) in their 13th fixture of the 2014/15 Sky Bet Championship campaign.

Kenny Jackett's side are currently seventh in the table having taken 20 points from 12 games, drawing 3-3 with Millwall in their last outing at The Den.

Danny Batth opened the scoring on 23 minutes before Ethan Ebanks-Landell and Bakary Sako netted after the break to give Wolves a three-goal lead. The away side were then pegged back by a goal from Lee Gregory and a Ricardo Fuller brace, surrendering their advantage and settling for a point from the Lions.

With 23 points from their opening 12 games Middlesbrough currently sit third in the Sky Bet Championship table, defeating Brighton & Hove Albion 2-1 in their last outing at the Amex Stadium.

Boro went in front through goals from Lee Tomlin and Albert Adomah before Gordon Greer scored a late consolation for Brighton, heading in Paddy McCourt's corner at the far post.

Wolves were victorious in Middlesbrough's last visit to Molineux in March 2013, winning 3-2 through goals from Stephen McManus (og), Bjorn Sigurdarson and Kevin Doyle.
