Wolves could be without Pedro Neto for tomorrow evening’s trip to Bramall Lane after Nuno Espirito Santo confirmed the winger picked up a knock in Saturday’s defeat against Arsenal.
The head coach was already missing Daniel Podence from his squad at the weekend after the Portuguese needed to return home the previous week and has since been isolating after arriving back in Wolverhampton.
Nuno is hopeful of having both wingers back in contention as his side aim to bounce back from their first loss in nine Premier League matches when they take on Sheffield United from 6pm.
On Neto picking up a knock
“Pedro, during the match, had a strong kick. Even after he came in he was struggling. He was able to finish the game, but he was struggling.
“We still have to assess him before tomorrow. His chances are a lot, but at the same time not too many. We’ll have to wait and see how he will work this afternoon, so let’s see how it goes.
“After what happened, for sure Daniel [Podence] is available to join and give us one more option. We still don’t know if Pedro is going to be ok or not, but we will assess this later.
“We have Daniel and he could start the game.”
On Podence isolating after returning from Portugal
“We did what we have to do. The moment he returned he went to his home and he stayed at his home. He tested two times already negative and we now he can join us.
“There’s a law that allows this situation, so he will probably join us tomorrow.
“He’s been doing it from home, but the days that he was without full training sessions with the team hopefully didn’t impact too much on him, so hopefully he’ll be able to recover his fitness levels over the next couple of days.
“It’s very positive because we need all the players, that’s the reality of our squad. So when we have all the players available, that’s the best situation for us, so that’s positive.”
