Southampton make the trip to the West Midlands on Monday evening and will be looking to keep their strong run of form going against Wolves.
Three consecutive Premier League wins have lifted them up into the European positions and seen them combine creative attacking displays with solid defensive performances.
The number of days available for preparation ahead of Monday has meant that Saints can squeeze in some more training sessions to make sure they are well set for their latest top-flight clash.
Ralph Hasenhuttl, his staff and players were shown at Staplewood via an official training gallery on the club’s website and this has given us a clue about how Saints may line up.
Most importantly, players who have returned from injury and from international action are shown taking part in Saturday’s training.
Ryan Bertrand, James Ward-Prowse, Will Smallbone and Theo Walcott are to set to be available for selection after minor injury problems.

Jan Bednarek, Jannik Vestergaard and Stuart Armstrong also appear and look to have come through matches for Poland, Denmark and Scotland unscathed.
One player is not shown is Moussa Djenepo, but his long travel time to international duty for Mali may play a part in this.
Other players such as Nathan Redmond and Che Adams were shown in training galleries during the week so are likely to also be available to start vs Wolves if they have not picked up an issues of their own.
It is also a positive to see academy graduates Kayne Ramsay, Jake Vokins, Nathan Tella and Dan N’Lundulu involved in preparations as they add further options behind the first-choice 11.
