Four changes to Town’s starting XI

- Four changes to the Town side at Wolves
- Scannell, Brown, Wells & Cranie come in
- Billing & Quaner subs; Lolley out, Smith injured

Head Coach David Wagner has made four changes to Town’s starting line-up for tonight’s Sky Bet Championship game against Wolverhampton Wanderers, which kicks-off at 7.45pm at Molineux.

Having made his return as a substitute against Fulham at the weekend, Sean Scannell (pictured) makes his first start since suffering damaged ankle ligaments when facing Wigan Athletic on 28 November 2016. He replaces Joe Lolley, who has not travelled to the Midlands tonight.

The second change also sees a first start since injury for Chelsea loanee Izzy Brown, who replaces Philip Billing in the team. This switch should see Aaron Mooy drop back to partner Jonathan Hogg in central midfield.

Unfortunately Tommy Smith is unavailable tonight; he’s not recovered after picking up a dead leg against Fulham at the weekend. As a result, Martin Cranie comes in to make his 50th league appearance for the Club.

The final switch sees Nahki Wells make his first start in three matches at the expense of Collin Quaner, who is a substitute this evening.

Wagner is without the services of the injured Tommy Smith (dead leg), Elias Kachunga (calf), Jon Gorenc Stanković (knee) and Kasey Palmer (hamstring) tonight.

Rajiv van La Parra makes his first return to his former club tonight, making his 50th appearance for the Club in the process. He played 57 games for Wolves between 2014 and 2016 ahead of his move to Town and scored the winner in the first meeting of the two sides back in August.

Town’s team vs Wolves:
1. Danny Ward
6. Jonathan Hogg (c)
7. Sean Scannell
10. Aaron Mooy
14. Martin Cranie
15. Chris Löwe
17. Rajiv van La Parra
21. Nahki Wells
26. Christopher Schindler

44. Michael Hefele

Joel Coleman, Dean Whitehead, Mark Hudson, Philip Billing, Harry Bunn, Tareiq Holmes-Dennis, Collin Quaner
