Wolves welcome Sheffield United to Molineux in the third round of the FA Cup on Sunday when Bruno Lage aims to put an end to the club’s long wait for bigger silver.
After finishing Wolves’ 42-year victory-free run at Old Trafford on Monday night, the Portuguese will be keen to end the club’s 41-year wait for a major trophy.
Lage has no new injury problems to contend with, but Romain Saiss is the latest absent after he dropped out of the African Cup of Nations.
This is how the Wolves can line up when they aim to reach the fourth round.

John Ruddy (GK) – Decisive for Wolves’ promotion to the Premier League a few seasons ago.
Max Kilman (CB) – The left-footed right-handed midfielder goes from clarity to clarity every week.
Conor Coady (CB) – His experience and leadership qualities will be crucial for Wolves in this competition.
Leander Dendoncker (CB) – Will have to step up in the defense in the absence of Saiss.

Ki-Jana Hoever (RWB) – Have thought it’s tough to remove Nelson Semedo this season.
Bruno Jordao (CM) – Can be a great chance for the 23-year-old to impress when Lage tries to freshen up his side.
Ruben Neves (CM) – The Portuguese are an integral part of how Wolves work as a team.
Rayan Ait-Nouri (LWB) – Had performed well before suffering an injury and he lost his place to Marcal.

Francisco Trincao (RW) – Talented and frustrating to the same extent, often disappoints with his decision-making in the last third.
Fabio Silva (ST) – A talented player, but he needs to find the net more regularly to catch Lage’s gaze.
Adama Traore (LW) – Made a big impact from the bench at Old Trafford last Monday.
