Eric Black is anticipating today's opponents Wolverhampton Wanderers to be a powerful side to play against.

Black cast an eye over this afternoon's opposition earlier in the week when Wolves played Crystal Palace at Molineux.

And although Wolves lost 2-1 on Tuesday evening, Black knows that they'll provide another stiff test for Rovers.

"Wolves are in exactly the same position as we are," said Black ahead of the game.

"They've enjoyed all the benefits of the Premier League, fallen out of it and now need to recover, reshape and align their whole process to ensure they can get back up at the first time of asking.

"I saw them on Tuesday night and they are a big powerful team. They are well organised, they are direct, they've got a lot of Premier League experience in their squad so they'll be a handful.

"I've watched them play a couple of teams and they physically ran over the top of them so it'll be a big challenge for us but that is the Championship for you.

"I fully expected Wolves to win their game at home to Crystal Palace, but having watched the game it is indicative of the Championship, teams turn up with good players, they're well organised and they aren't intimidated and I thought Palace were exceptional on the night, they had one or two really outstanding young players."
