After coming through three rounds of qualifying, Wolves get their Europa League group stage games underway tomorrow night when they welcome Braga to Molineux.
Thursday…Braga at home…changes? Back to the regular back three for me. Doherty still on the bench with one eye on coming back in at Palace. Would like to see Cutrone in from the start, again with Jota fresh for the weekend. Thoughts? pic.twitter.com/I6wR1KwyWf

If Wolves line out as Spiers has suggested, there will be three changes to the team that lost 2-5 against Chelsea in the Premier League last weekend, with Willy Boly and Ryan Bennett returning to the back three in place of Jesus Vallejo and Romain Saiss, while Patrick Cutrone would come in for Diogo Jota up front.
That line-up would also see Conor Coady, Joao Moutinho, Leander Dendoncker, Raul Jimenez and Jota all maintain their record of playing in every Wolves match so far this season, having already made 11 appaearances each in all competitions. [via TransferMarkt.co.uk]
These Wolves fans on Twitter called for Jimenez, their top scorer this season with eight goals, to be given a rest for the Braga game tomorrow night:
Cutrone and Netto seem to be full of running. Would like both start to see them together. Jota to me seems to be like he was last season before it clicked with Raul. I think Raul must be shattered so any rest he gets is deserved.

I’d start Jota instead of Jiminez as he looks tired and Doherty for Traore. I’d issue a public apology to Bennett.

I’d be tempted to play Cutrone with Jota. Didn’t think he linked with Raul at all well at Everton. Plus if anyone needs a rest……

Must rest Jimenez soon. Gibbs-Whyte behind Cutrone?

I think the 2 players that look most in need of a game off are Jimenez who hardly had a break over the summer and Moutinho, I'd replace them with Cutrone and Neto, other than that same team as yours

I’d rest Jimenez, Jota and Moutinho for Cutrone, Neto and Gibbs White/Saiss.
We need to rest our game-changers for a winnable game in the Prem.
I’d even play Ruddy – as his distribution is way more productive.
And definitely play Bennett if he and Nuno can kiss and make up.
