Lead coach Mark Robson will be hopeful of having close to a full contingent of young Hammers to work with for Monday’s fixture.
Divin Mubama and Harrison Ashby both made their respective returns from slight injuries last time out, while Kamarai Swyer and Junior Robinson continued their own comebacks against Liverpool as well.
As experienced players return from injury, the likes of Kaelan Casey and Oliver Scarles represented the U18s last weekend, but Robson could once again call upon the duo after impressive outings for the development side.
Promoted from Division 2 last season, Wolverhampton Wanderers are making a solid start to life back in Premier League 2’s top-flight.
Wolves sit eighth in Division 1 with 14 points from eleven matches played so far this campaign. A slow start to the season has picked up in recent weeks, with impressive home wins against Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City pushing the side up the table.
The West Midlands outfit achieved promotion through the Play-offs last season and, as they seek to establish themselves in Division 1, goals have come from all over the team.
Midfielders Harvey Griffiths and Joe Hodge have been essential to the side so far this campaign. Griffiths has scored four goals and provided three assists in 14 outings for Wolves U21s this season, while Hodge has netted three goals in just nine matches.
Much like the Hammers, Wolves U21s have worked with a relatively young side this campaign, and are under the guidance of former midfielder James Collins.
The 44-year-old has worked with Wolverhampton Wanderers since 2020 and has recently also assisted with coaching in the first team, as the Club seeks a new first-team manager.
