Nuno warns Wolves players: We MUST win Black Country derby against West Brom

Wolves boss Nuno says beating West Brom in today's Black Country derby is a MUST.

Nuno - who also says Willy Boly will return from injury and start - is determined to beat the Baggies and start looking up again in the Premier League.

"It is a must-win game, because of our previous games and because it is our main rival," he said.

"If you see in terms of the region what it means for our fans, but especially what it means for us.

"We've had three games in a row at Molineux, and besides not having the home factor, it's Molineux.

"For us, that's something we must keep even without our fans. Molineux must be a fortress.

"It must be a place that no matter which opponent comes makes them feel uncomfortable.

"They must feel how hard it is to play in Molineux. Regaining this spirit is fundamental for us."

On facing Sam Allardyce for the first time and when asked if he knew the Baggies chief grew up as a Wolves fan, Nuno added: "I haven't faced Sam Allardyce before.

"I didn't know he was a Wolves fan, so now we have something in common."
