Team News: Wolverhampton Wanderers unchanged for Derby County trip

Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Nuno Espirito Santo names an unchanged XI for the trip to Derby County.

Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Nuno Espirito Santo has named an unchanged XI for the trip to Derby County this afternoon.

Nuno keeps faith with the XI that delivered a 1-0 win over promotion favourites Middlesbrough at Molineux last weekend, with youngster Bright Enobakhare starting up front alongside Diogo Jota and Leo Bonatini, who grabbed the winner against Boro.

Matt Doherty, Romain Saiss, Ruben Neves and Barry Douglas make up the midfield in a 3-4-3 formation, with Roderick Miranda, skipper Conor Coady and Willy Boly in the backline ahead of John Ruddy in goal.

Ivan Cavaleiro is back in the matchday squad after serving out his suspension and takes his place on the bench alongside Nouha Dicko, who claimed the winner against Yeovil Town in the EFL Cup in midweek.

Other options for Nuno include Danny Batth, Jack Price and youngster Connor Ronan, while there is no place in the travelling squad for long-serving midfielder Dave Edwards.

The Rams also field an unchanged starting XI following their opening-weekend draw at Sunderland last Sunday, with Johnny Russell, Chris Martin and former Wolves loanee Andi Weimann up front.

Jacob Butterfield, Tom Huddlestone and Bradley Johnson marshal the midfield, while Andre Wisdom, Richard Keogh, Curtis Davies and Craig Forsyth continue at the back ahead of Scott Carson in goal.

Matej Vydra misses out on the squad after tweaking his hamstring during a training session, while Gary Rowett also opts not to risk Nick Blackman after his recent thigh injury.

Derby County: Carson; Wisdom, Keogh, Davies, Forsyth; Butterfield, Huddlestone, Johnson; Russell, Martin, Weimann
Subs: Mitchell, Bryson, Anya, Baird, Pearce, Bennett, Nugent

Wolverhampton Wanderers: Ruddy; Miranda, Coady, Boly; Doherty, Saiss, Neves, Douglas; Enobakhare, Bonatini, Jota
Subs: Norris, Bennett, Batth, Cavaleiro, Dicko, Price, Ronan
