Wolves lost 2-0 to Nottingham Forest in a behind-closed-doors friendly at Molineux on Tuesday afternoon.

Neither club has mentioned the game and there was no media present, but Nuno Espirito Santo is understood to have fielded a mixture of first-team and under-23s players against the Championship side.

A Tyler Walker penalty and a John Bostock goal saw Forest come out on top.

Used as a way to boost fitness levels ahead of the Premier League's restart at West Ham a week on Saturday, the game was played without an official referee or assistant referees.

Only essential staff were allowed in for the friendly – the players, coaching team and other important club personnel – and Wolves had to carry out a thorough risk-assessment before the match. Players also travelled to the ground alone.
