PREVIEW: Hull City v Wolverhampton Wanderers

Leonid Slutsky will be delighted to get off to a winning start on home soil with a 4-1 victory over 10 men Burton. Yet, undoubtedly, this match just three days later against Wolverhampton Wanderers, promises to be an altogether more difficult proposition - especially as the visitors arrive with a 100% record.

The Russian boss is likely to name the starting XI that overturned Burton Albion by a convincing score on Saturday, meaning Kevin Stewart is probably going to have to wait a little longer for his Hull City debut, even though the summer signing has now recovered from an ankle injury that prevented him starting the season.

City have a good record on home turf against Wolves with four wins from the past five matches, but the visitors will be buoyed by a flying start to their Championship campaign after some heavy spending in the summer. However, key members of the team will be missing for the trip to East Yorkshire, as Helder Costa, Dave Edwards, Phil Ofosu-Ayeh and Ben Marshall are all ruled out with injury.
