The starting lineup for Wolves’ Premier League matchup at Molineux this afternoon against Newcastle United has been announced by head coach Gary O’Neil.

Nelson Semedo and Mario Lemina, who were suspended and missed the trip to the Vitality Stadium, have returned to the starting lineup, marking O’Neil’s two changes from the team that defeated AFC Bournemouth last time out.

When Semedo returns to the right back position, Matt Doherty is moved to the bench and Lemina replaces Joao Gomes in the Wanderers’ midfield. Muscle injury keeps Jean-Ricner Bellegarde out of the game completely.

From front to back. Jose Sa starts in goal once again with a back five made up of Semedo, Max Kilman, Craig Dawson, Toti Gomes and Raya Ait-Nouri. Lemina is joined in midfield by Boubacar Traore with Pedro Neto and Hwang Hee-chan supporting Matheus Cunha in attack.

Should he need to, O’Neil will have a variety of options available to him on the bench. Sasa Kalajdzic, the winner of the previous week’s match, is joined by Dan Bentley, Joao Gomes, Fabio Silva, Jonny, Tommy Doyle, and Pablo Sarabia in addition to Doherty.

Wolves starting lineup against Newcastle is as follows: Sa; Semedo, Kilman, Dawson, T. Gomes, Ait-Nouri; Lemina, Traore; Neto, Hwang, Cunha

Subs: Doyle, Sarabia, J. Gomes, Silva, Doyle, Jonny, Bentley, Doherty, Bueno, and Kalajdzic

Newcastle starting lineup against Wolves: Almiron, Gordon, Wilson; Guimaraes, Longstaff, Joelinton; Pope, Lascelles, Schar, and Burn

Subs: Krafth, Hall, Livramento, Willock, Dubravka, Gillespie, Dummett, Ritchie, Targett, and Hall
