Kevin Doyle is Wolves' major fitness concern. The Republic of Ireland international aggravated the knee ligament injury which sidelined him for two months during his comeback as a substitute against Sunderland last weekend.

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy will hope Steven Fletcher continues the form which has brought six goals in eight games as they look for the win which will guarantee top flight status for another season.

Blackburn have received a boost ahead of the game after Chris Samba, Junior Hoilett and Jermaine Jones all shook off injury niggles.

Rovers boss Steve Kean described the trio as "vital" and "matchwinners" and now has virtually a full squad to choose from.

Only long-term absentees Ryan Nelsen and Vince Grella are unavailable.

Wolves (from): Hennessey, Hahnemann, Stearman, Craddock, Berra, Mancienne, Mouyokolo, Elokobi, Foley, Guedioura, Henry, Jones, Milijas, Jarvis, Hunt, Hamill, O'Hara, Kightly, Ebanks-Blake, Fletcher, Ward, Vokes, Doyle.

Blackburn (from): Robinson, Samba, Givet, Olsson, Salgado, J Jones, Emerton, P Jones, Nzonzi, Dunn, Diouf, Hoilett, Bunn, Roberts, Pedersen, Hanley, Kalinic, Rochina, Formica, Benjani, Santa Cruz.
