Brentford boss Dean Smith says Spanish winger Jota is keen to figure following a back injury, despite being the subject of rejected bids this week.

Rico Henry is close following a knee problem, while Sergi Canos could also return after a twisted ankle.

Wolves, who have named the same starting line-up in all four league games, made 11 changes for their EFL Cup win at Southampton on Wednesday.

Head coach Nuno Espirito Santo is likely to revert to his strongest team.
