Preview: Wolves v Bristol City

Wolves v Bristol City
Sky Bet Championship
Molineux
Tuesday, March 8th (7.45pm)

Bristol City take on Wolves at Molineux tonight, a place they haven’t won since 1931.

All the key information on tonight's opponents.

WOLVES
Wolves have won once in nine matches, and just three league fixtures in 2016. The Black Country club lie in 13th position in the table, and go into tonight’s match following a 2-1 loss to Middlesbrough on Friday. Kenny Jackett’s side look likely to endure another Sky Bet Championship season with the play-offs 12 points out of reach, and the relegation zone 11 points below. Ethan Ebanks-Landell (metatarsal), Nouha Dicko (knee), James Henry (hamstring), Mike Williamson (hamstring), Razak Boukari (knee), Dave Edwards (metatarsal) and Jordan Graham (knee) are all out of action. Michal Zyro (calf) returns to the Wolves squad. 

MANAGER
Kenny Jackett - Former Wales international and one-club man as a player who made over 400 appearances for hometown club Watford. After a first stint in management with the Hornets in 1996/97, Jackett took charge of Swansea City for three years and Millwall for six. He led Wolves to the League One title in his first season at Molineux and narrowly missed out on the Championship play-offs last term. 

STAR MAN
Joe Mason - Plymouth Argyle academy graduate who played 55 times for the Devonshire side before moving to Cardiff for £250,000 in 2011. Mason has been out on loan to Bolton Wanderers three times since 2013, scoring 10 goals in 28 games. In his four years with the Bluebirds, the 24-year-old scored 24 goals earning himself a big money move to Molineux in January. 

OFFICIALS
Scott Duncan is appointed as the man in the middle. Michael Denton and Adam Matthews will assist him. Christopher Kavana will be the fourth official. 

TICKETS
There will be no pay on the night. 

LAST TIME OUT
Bristol City 1-0 Wolves - Jonathan Kodjia’s eighth goal of the campaign was enough to seal maximum points over Wolves. The Frenchman rose highest to head home Elliott Bennett’s cross in a match City were rarely troubled. 

LAST SEASON
Sky Bet Championship: 7th 
FA Cup: Third round replay (lost to Fulham) 
Capital One Cup: First round (lost to Northampton Town) 

DID YOU KNOW?
Wolves are one of only three clubs to have won all four English professional leagues. Only Preston North End and Burnley have also achieved the feat.
