Wolves midfielder Mario Lemina believes his team ‘must to win’ tonight’s Carabao Cup third round match against Ipswich Town at Portman Road.
The Premier League club has struggled in the league thus far this season, winning just one of their first six games and currently sitting 16th in the rankings.
They are coming off a 1-1 draw with Luton Town on Saturday, which was Luton’s first point of the season and included a contentious Hatters’ penalty.
However, Gary O’Neil’s side, who face Manchester City on Saturday, thrashed Blackpool 5-0 in the last round of the FA Cup.
And midfielder Lemina said tonight’s clash in Suffolk (7.45pm) is a key one for the club.
“We need to think about the game in the cup at Ipswich because it’s important and we need to win,” he told the Wolves website.
