This is what Tim Mk II thinks:

From the BBC:


Wolves have Dominic Iorfa banned after his fifth booking of the season.

Matt Doherty should come in, but the hosts have only four fit defenders and midfielder Dave Edwards faces a test after a groin injury on Wales duty.

Middlesbrough have a doubt over striker Christian Stuani, who returned from Uruguay duty with a hamstring problem.

Other than that, Boro have no new injury problems, but Daniel Ayala, Grant Leadbitter and Adam Clayton are all one booking away from a ban.

Wolves have won each of the past four fixtures between these sides at Molineux, keeping a clean sheet on three occasions.
Middlesbrough have already beaten Wolves 3-0 at the Riverside this season in the Capital One Cup.
There has not been a draw between these two sides at Molineux in nine games, with the visitors losing twice as many times as they have won in that time (W3 L6).
The home side have won each of the last six league encounters between these two sides.
Wolves have conceded a league-high 65% of their goals in the first half this season.
Boro meanwhile have shipped just three goals in the opening 45 minutes this season - only Reading have conceded fewer in this time (2).
Seeing how empty the stadium is, is depressing. Even last season whilst doing well gates were shocking poor.

Low expectations today but fingers crossed.

Six minutes gone and it's been 50/50 here at Molineux. The sides exchanging spells of possession as they get a feel for the game.

Not even the Wolves Twitter is saying anything so far other than that...

Afobe booked for clashing with Amorebieta as the pair jostle for the ball. A stray arm perhaps? The Boro man looked in agony. Fine 30 secs later

Passing the 20-minute mark and there haven't been any real chances to speak of. An even affair so far. Wolves looking brighter.

He's referring to our shirt colour...
