Wolves have no new injury problems ahead of the match at home to Arsenal.

Jody Craddock is still getting back to fitness after recovering from a hip injury, while Ronald Zubar is out with an ankle complaint.

Adlene Guedioura's broken leg makes him a long-term absentee. Michael Kightly is recovering from an operation on his knee.

Laurent Koscielny will miss Arsenal's game at Wolves after seeing his appeal against his sending-off against Newcastle dismissed.

Koscielny will serve an immediate two-match ban, joining fellow centre-half Thomas Vermaelen (Achilles), midfielder Abou Diaby (ankle), left-back Kieran Gibbs (knee) and Aaron Ramsey (broken leg) on the sidelines.

Should goalkeeper Manuel Almunia recover from an elbow injury, he could supplant Lukasz Fabianski in goal. Andrey Arshavin is also pushing for a start after coming off the bench on Saturday, although the best fellow forward Robin van Persie (ankle) can hope for is another substitute appearance.

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

Arsenal (from): Fabianski, Clichy, Squillaci, Sagna, Nasri, Song, Wilshere, Fabregas, Walcott, Eboue, Chamakh, Szczesny, Arshavin, Denilson, Bendtner, Vela, Djourou, Rosicky, Van Persie, Almunia.
