Wolves and Julen Lopetegui are four points from safety in the Premier League, so they have a lot to worry about moving forward. However, Tuesday’s game against Gillingham feels like the beginning of a new era.

If reports are to be believed, the Spaniard plans to make a number of high-profile signings in January, seemingly upending the practise of purchasing young players who could be sold for a profit in the future.

Wolves’ new season will be equally important and difficult. Following this contest, games against Everton, Manchester United, and Aston Villa are impending, followed by a trip to Liverpool for the FA Cup.

Lopetegui will, at least for the time being, be concentrated on trying to advance Wolves to their first EFL Cup quarterfinal in 27 years.

Wolves played friendlies against Empoli and Cadiz prior to this game, drawing with the Italian team before defeating the La Liga team by a score of 4-3.

Neil Harris believes that, given the club’s current struggle to stay in the EFL, this match is not one of the club’s top priorities.

Although they have a game in hand over some of the teams above them and are only one point out of 21st place, Gillingham are currently last in the fourth tier.

After a couple of postponements, this team is rested, and they will see this as an opportunity to possibly set up a lucrative last-eight match.

Given that Gillingham was drawn at home to Leicester City in the FA Cup third round, they are already in that situation, which may lessen the pressure of this match given that they are already receiving additional revenue.

The Kent-based team previously demonstrated their ability to defeat Premier League competition while playing on the road by coming from behind to defeat Brentford in a penalty shootout.
