Early kickoff on Saturday, as were on the telly for the game at Wolves.

They've sacked Walter Zenga recently after a not to great start, don't think they've got a new manager yet, may be wrong though.

Hopefully will get back from work to catch most of the game.

Expect Hughes will come in for Hanson and will be interesting who starts out of Bent & Vydra. Don't expect any other changes, though I would like to see Wiemann get a chance. Not sure if he's not quite fully fit yet or Mac just doesn't fancy him. But I'm surprised how little he's been used.

Young Jamie did well against Sheff Wed, but obviously Will has to come back in. Bent & Vydra is the interesting one, especially with how well Bent played, perhaps Vydra could be used on a wide role?

Darren Bent rolling back the years with that one :D

Very comfortable first half, just need to make sure we don't let them back in it.

3-2 goals flying in at both ends, chances galore at both ends, it's just like old times.

Entertaining game, would have been disappointed if we had not won. Great to see Ince back to his best. We didn't look the same without Christie at right back, Hanson looked out of place.

McClaren certainly knows how to get the best out of Ince & Bent.

Spot on about Christie, Hanson struggled at right back, and offered no threat going forward, which left their left winger who was their best player the freedom to push forward. Hopefully Christies injury isn't serious, as Hanson isn't a right back and that leaves us with Baird.

First 45 mins were superb, should have been 3 or 4 up. Christie going off and Wolves coming out with more purpose second half changed the game. But we did enough in the end.

Good to see Ince performing and Bent rolling back the years. Hughes was brilliant, Butterfield is getting better. Some shaky moments at the back still, but much better than the dire stuff under Pearson.
