Wolves head into Sunday’s Premier League clash with Newcastle on a high after ending a six-game winless run last time out.

The Molineux outfit head to St James’ Park off the back of a morale-boosting victory at home to Chelsea in midweek.

Meanwhile, the Magpies have looked much stronger over the last month following a tough start to the campaign.

Newcastle have tasted defeat just once in their last six outings and Rafael Benitez would have been satisfied with a draw at Everton on Wednesday.

Benitez is hoping to have Kenedy and Paul Dummett available, but Florin Lejeune, Isaac Hayden Karl Darlow are certain to miss out.

Fabian Schar serves a one-game ban after picking up five yellow cards, while Matt Ritchie is available after serving his suspension.

Wolves showed real guts to come from behind and beat Chelsea and boss Nuno Espirito Santo will urge his men to build on that performance.

Ruben Neves is back in the mix for the Midlands outfit after serving a one-game suspension, while Leander Dendoncker, who made his league debut from the bench against Chelsea, could be set for his first start.

Newcastle have never lost in six previous Premier League encounters against Wolves, winning two and drawing four, with both sides scoring in all six of those games.
