Wolves under-23s will be looking to bounce back from their winless run when they invite Newcastle United to Aggborough on Monday lunchtime.
The development side are looking for their first win in four after two draws and two defeats, with the second of those coming against Aston Villa last week, as head coach James Collins made several changes to his starting 11.
Wolves’ play-off push has been stunted in recent weeks, with a pair of draws against Middlesbrough and Sunderland, but the under-23s will be hoping to get back to winning ways against a Newcastle side which they overcame 3-0 earlier in the season.
Although Villa come into the game off the back of a pair of home defeats to Stoke City and Burnley, the young Villans will take confidence from their 3-1 win over Wolves at Aggborough back in October.
Despite being second from bottom in Premier League 2 Division 2, the Magpies come into the game following two games unbeaten, having picked up a win on their travels in Norwich last month before a point at Fulham.
Wolves’ loss to Aston Villa last time out saw them drop to sixth in the table, pushing them out of the paly-off spots on goal difference. But Collins’ side have a game in hand over the teams above them, and will move up to third with a win on Monday.
With the game to be played behind closed doors, supporters can still catch all the action live from Kidderminster on Wolves TV.
The match will be streamed online from 12pm, with the full match stream and commentary available to watch on wolves.co.uk, the Wolves App or the Wolves YouTube channel.
