Wolves had to endure a frustrating afternoon when stifled by Brighton’s negative tactics here over the weekend, despite having 68 per cent of the possession and 23 attempts on goal.
Diogo Jota hit the woodwork twice for Wanderers, while Mat Ryan denied Leander Dendoncker from point-black range as the hosts slipped to ninth.
Nuno Espirito Santo said: “We had chances, we tried, we had a lot of the ball, it was not to be – it’s just football.
“It’s very difficult to break a team down, we created situations and Brighton defended well. Their main objective was not to concede.
“It’s up to us, we should do better in some moments. It was good goalkeeping, we hit the post, this is the game.”
This should be more open, though, and that does tend to bring the best out of Wolves, who have beaten Liverpool, Chelsea, Tottenham and Manchester United twice this term.
Wanderers also led for a long time before drawing at Emirates Stadium in November.
Last Wolves line-up: Patricio, Doherty, Bennett, Boly, Coady, Jonny, Neves, Gibbs-White, Jota, Moutinho, Jimenez.
Leander Dendoncker is pushing for a recall and could replace Morgan Gibbs-White, while defender Ruben Vinagre may also feature from the start after impressing off the bench on Saturday.
