Supporters could, at long last, return for the clash with Manchester United on May 23.

Around 7,900 (25 per cent of Molineux’s 31,700 overall capacity) would be able to go should Covid-19 infection rates continue to fall.

Wolves will confirm exact details at a later date, but say there will be ‘a balloting system to assign the tickets’.

James Davies, Wolves’ head of ticketing, said: “The news that supporters can return to Molineux from May 17 onwards is extremely welcome.

"The prospect of playing our final game of the season against Manchester United on 23rd May in front of thousands of supporters is exciting for players, staff and fans alike.

“As further details emerge around the requirements to ensure the safety of supporters, the club will update previously-made plans and make announcements on how tickets will be made available, and what supporters can expect the matchday experience to feel like.”
