Wolves dropped two points at Millwall yesterday but fans may be more concerned by the injuries suffered by Willy Boly and Ivan Cavaleiro.
The duo have both played a key part in Wanderers success so far this season but both had to go off at The Den during the fesity 2-2 draw.
Cavaleiro was forced off at half-time and was actually on the floor as Wolves equalised, with Helder Costa setting up Diogo Jota.
Boly, who has been highly influential in Wolves’ fine defensive record, lasted until the 68th minute before he was replaced by Roderick Miranda. It’s no coincidence that Nuno Espirito Santo’s men conceded the equaliser just four minutes after the dominant Frenchman had gone off.
However, Express & Star journalist Tim Spiers issued a positive update on the pair, revealing through his twitter account that Santo was hopeful the injuries sustained weren’t serious.
Nuno hopeful that Cavaleiro and Boly's injuries aren't serious. Certainly Boly was walking around ok after full time.

He also added that Boly was seen walking around after the game and didn’t appear to be limping.
Nevertheless, the pair are sure to be serious doubts for the crucial clash against Bristol City at Ashton Gate in three days time.
Wolves fans will be glad that the injuries don’t appear to be too serious as the pair are key to the way the team plays.
Boly is probably the best defender in the league and whilst Santo has players who can step in, their defensive record with the on-loan Porto man is insane.
Similarly, whilst Wolves have the likes of Costa and Jota to play without Cavaleiro, the Portuguese attacker has produced many big moments for the side this season and will be missed.
