Bruno Lage should hand Willy Boly his first appearance of the season when Wolverhampton Wanderers do battle with Tottenham Hotspur in the third round of the League Cup tonight, according to Express & Star journalist Luke Hatfield.
What's the latest news involving Boly?
However, the central defender has endured a frustrating start to Bruno Lage's reign and failed to make a single appearance so far.
He could be in line for a maiden appearance under Lage, who was appointed as Wolves' head coach in June, when Spurs head to Molineux with a place in the fourth round of the League Cup up for grabs tonight.
Incidentally, Boly was wanted by the north London club during the summer transfer window.
However, Boly failed to seal a move away before the deadline passed and his contract, worth £67,308-per-week, still has just shy of two years remaining.
What has Luke Hatfield said about Boly?
Hatfield has urged Lage to bring Boly back into the fold and offer the 30-year-old an extended run in the team, starting tonight.
The journalist told GMS: "I'd like to see Willy Boly brought back in. I think he's a really good defender when he's on his game but he needs a consistent run.

"It wasn't too long ago that we were saying Willy Boly is probably the best centre-back outside of the top six.
"He's got that quality in him and I'd like to see him back in the fold."
Who has been in Wolves' defence during Boly's absence?
But it has not worked out particularly well, with Wolves losing four of those six encounters and keeping only two clean sheets.
As a result, Wolves have made a disappointing start to the campaign and are just a point outside of the Premier League drop zone.News Now - Sport News
