Parrys International Wolves know they will need to pick up wins away from home if they are to make a late charge for the top four.

Both sides are at full strength for a key clash with Swindon, who are already in the Cup Final, strongly fancied to make the cut.

Wolverhampton skipper Rory Schlein is hoping recent experience on the revamped Abbey Stadium track will benefit his team.

He said: “I think we’re starting to get some momentum at the ideal time of the year and I think we can beat anyone home or away.

“There’s still work to be done though and some big meetings to come with the next one at Swindon.

“We were there not so long back so it’s pretty fresh in our memory.

“We kind of ran them close part way through before we faded slightly at the end.

“But hopefully this time we can go there and do even better because that could prove to be a massive result one way or the other.”


Swindon: Jason Doyle, Adam Ellis, Tobiasz Musielak, Rasmus Jensen, Troy Batchelor, Ellis Perks, Claus Vissing.

Wolverhampton: Jacob Thorssell, Luke Becker, Rory Schlein, Nick Morris, Sam Masters, Kyle Howarth, Ryan Douglas.

Also, triple world champion Tai Woffinden will be back at Monmore Green for Wolverhampton’s home clash with Peterborough on Monday. He’ll be meeting fans at his merchandise stand, as well as taking orders for his autobiography which is due out next month.

And he will be joining the BT Sport team for some more fun on TV.

“I’m looking forward to it,” he said. “I always feel like I’m going home when I go to Wolves, I still have a lot of friends there and it wil be good to see everyone.

“I’m also looking forward to doing some more TV work, I felt a bit out of my depth with Kelvin Tatum and Nigel Pearson at the British Final but had some fun with them.”
