Nathan Judah's Wolves notebook vs Spurs

Nathan Judah gives his notebook thoughts following Wolves' 2-1 win over Spurs.

Hallelujah, I predicted the starting team! Two changes from the defeat at Sheffield United and both made sense.

Joao Gomes has had to be patient on the sidelines following a little dip in form, but gets the chance to make up for lost time in this big game.

Bellegarde was always the preferred option (at the expense of Kalajdzic) if he could prove his fitness - he has, so I'd expect at least an hour from him.

Plenty of options on the bench, but no room for Santiago Bueno, leaving Wolves without a back-up centre-back.

But with three on the pitch and Matt Doherty in an emergency, I don't think it's too risky.

Plenty of changes for Spurs (as expected), but this is still a strong front three that will punish you if Wolves are caught napping.
