Wolves manager Mick McCarthy has a host of injury worries ahead of his team's match against the Black Cats.

Defender Steven Mouyokolo is struggling with a back injury and is rated as 50/50 for the match but McCarthy is hopeful that Kevin Foley, who injured his knee in training, and Steven Fletcher, who has a virus, will be fit to play.
