GAMEDAY – Wolves at Home

Blues take on Wolves today hoping that they can get their first win at St Andrew’s this season. Having taken five points from three games Blues haven’t done too badly with their start but they face a Wolves side heavily infused with cash from new owners.


Congolese international Prince Oniangué could make his debut in the old gold and black today having joined the club from Stade de Reims on Monday. Nouha Dicko could also come into the squad having been out for a year with injury.

The chief question for Blues will be if Gary Rowett sticks with his team that picked up four points on their travels, or looks for something a bit more attacking at home.

It’s a tough one to call; on the one hand Blues have looked shotshy at home and the inclusion of Che Adams and Greg Stewart could inject some real pace and goals into the team; on the other hand it’s a local derby and there could be a real battle in midfield against a Wolves side which has been heavily bolstered in the current transfer window.


Keith Stroud is in the middle for this one. This will be his fifth game of the season, with his previous four producing 24 yellow cards and a sending off. Mr Stroud’s last game involving Blues was the 2-2 draw with Preston at St Andrew’s in which he booked seven players including Kyle Lafferty and Jacques Maghoma for Blues.
