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.

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.

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

What Is It That FIFA Actually Do?

That's the question raised timidly by someone sat at the back of the room, whilst others remind that UEFA aren't perfect either. Plus a few more gone on to better XIs...

Time To Step Up, Mr Platini...

UEFA should step up and extend the Euros to replace FIFA's tarnished World Cup, say a couple of mailboxers. Also: all hail Carlo, King of the Kop, and plenty more Budget XIs...
