Wolves will look to continue their recent strong form when they host Brighton in the Premier League on Saturday.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have lost just one of their last seven Premier League games and are well in the hunt for a Champions League place having beat Tottenham 3-2 at the weekend.
Brighton have a completely different set of concerns right now, with Graham Potter’s side enduring a nine-game winless run across all competitions. As a result, the Seagulls have slipped to 15th in the Premier League table.
Can Wolves keep the pressure on the top four or will Brighton stop the rot? Read on for our preview, predictions, team news and more.

Ones to watch
Home team: Diogo Jota
Having had a tough new-year period, Diogo Jota has hit a real hot streak in recent weeks, kick-started by his Europa League hat-trick against Espanyol in February.
The Portuguese forward is a superb dribbler of the ball but is equally adept at combining with the likes of Raul Jimenez and Ruben Neves, linking the midfield and forward line.
If Jota is on form, there won’t be much Brighton can do to stop him.
Key stat: Jota has been directly involved in seven goals across his last three games in all competitions, scoring six and assisting one.
Brighton: Neal Maupay
Brighton have scored more than one goal in a single game on just one occasion during their recent nine-game winless streak — their most glaring problem is quite clear.
That run has also coincided with a long barren streak for striker Neal Maupay, who has scored just once in 2020 so far.
That said, the Frenchman comfortably remains the Seagulls top goalscorer and Potter will be desperate for him to rediscover his golden touch soon to lift his team away from the relegation battle.
Key stat: Maupay has scored just once in his last 11 Brighton appearances.

Confirmed Brighton line-up
🔢 The team news is in for today's game with @Wolves.
— Brighton & Hove Albion ⚽️ (@OfficialBHAFC) March 7, 2020
Wolves are now just three points behind Chelsea in fourth and are building up a good head of steam both domestically and continentally.
They face a Brighton side desperate for points but terribly short on confidence on Saturday and with a vibrant Molineux crowd behind them, we can only see a win for Wolves here.
