Wolves remain six points clear at the top of the table and need just four wins from their remaining eight games to seal promotion back to the Premier League. After suffering a humiliating defeat to rivals Aston Villa, Nuno Espírito Santo’s side have won back to back games, bagging three goals in each.

The hosts will be without target man Rudy Gestede who is out for the rest of the season, but defender Fabio Da Silva could return. Daniel Ayala is expected to be fully fit after managing sixty minutes in Boro’s draw at Brentford last time out.
Wolves will be without the talented Diogo Jota, he’s set to miss at least two weeks with an ankle injury.
But Nuno still has an array of attacking options to choose from including Benik Afobe who has bagged four goals in his last four outings.
The striker is 5/1 to open the scoring.
Boro have struggled to find the net against sides in and around them, while Wolves have lost just two of their last 12 away games, keeping seven clean sheets in the process.
And for that reason Wolves win to nil looks good value at 3/1.
