Boly did not train most of the week and despite featuring against Burnley, there has been a concerning change to Boly’s heart rate, which forced Wolves to shut him down.

“He’s in a tough moment. He was infected and this week he was not able to train,” Nuno said after the match.

“His heart rate increases very fast so we have to look. He’s doing exams and analysis to see if there’s any other issue. I hope not. I hope medically things will improve after resting him.

“After Covid, everyone has to look at the after-effects of Boly and many other players. We must be aware of that. His energy is not there. He feels tired and he’s not able to sustain the level of training that we want.”

On the match itself, Nuno was quick to point out the torrid, rainy conditions at the Hawthorns and praised both teams for their efforts.

“It was difficult conditions and a difficult opponent. We started well with possession and control and were dominant for most parts of the game.

It was physical in tough circumstances and the boys fought, won duels and they were there.

“We should improve on certain aspects. Defensively, at the beginning of the second half, we had issues with the long ball of West Brom. And offensively we had chances to do better in the final part.”

With four games left to play, Wolves are safe from relegation and are just about mathematically eliminated from European contention.
