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.

Wolves will be without captain Karl Henry for two months after he suffered a knee injury during the team's defeat at Blackpool. Dave Edwards is also out with a thigh complaint. Christophe Berra is suspended, but Ronald Zubar comes back into the squad after recovering from an ankle injury.

Sunderland are set to begin a lengthy spell without defenders Titus Bramble and Michael Turner.

Bramble underwent surgery on a damaged knee cartilage on Thursday and is facing at least six weeks on the sidelines, wile Turner could be out for three months with a knee ligament injury.

John Mensah is set to partner Anton Ferdinand in central defence despite still recovering from a dislocated shoulder, while striker Asamoah Gyan has returned to training after missing Monday night's 2-2 Premier League draw with Everton because of a thigh strain.

David Meyler (knee) is working his way back towards full match fitness, but Fraizer Campbell (also knee) is still out.

Wolves (from): Hahnemann, Foley, Van Damme, Jarvis, Jones, Ward, Fletcher, Ebanks-Blake, Doyle, Stearman, Mujangi Bia, Mouyokolo, Halford, Milijas, Elokobi, Hill, Hennessey, Hunt, Bent, Zubar.

Sunderland (from): Gordon, Mignolet, Onuoha, Bardsley, Richardson, Angeleri, Ferdinand, Mensah, Da Silva, Cattermole, Riveros, Henderson, Malbranque, Elmohamady, Zenden, Bent, Gyan, Welbeck, Adams.
