Wolves have a number of injury concerns ahead of the match.

Dave Edwards and Dave Jones both have leg injuries, although the latter may recover by Sunday.

Steven Mouyokolo is out after hurting his knee in training on Friday.

Ronald Zubar is also out with a sore back, while Stephen Hunt has not recovered from a calf strain.

Long-term absentee Michael Kightly played 45 minutes of a reserve match on Thursday, but no date has been set for his return, and on-loan midfielder Jamie O'Hara is ineligible to play against his parent club.

Harry Redknapp plans to hand Gareth Bale a place on the Tottenham bench in order for the Welshman to prove his fitness ahead of Wednesday's Champions League clash with AC Milan.

The winger has been out for seven weeks with a back injury but could come on for the last 30 minutes of the game at Molineux, according to Redknapp.

The Spurs boss is without Rafael van der Vaart (calf) for Sunday's game, while Vedran Corluka (ankle), Jonathan Woodgate (groin), Younes Kaboul (knee) and Tom Huddlestone (ankle) remain sidelined.

Jermain Defoe picked up a minor ankle knock during the club's warm-weather training camp in Dubai this week but he is now back in training and is available for selection, though Ledley King (groin) is unlikely to feature.

Wolves (from): Hahnemann, Jarvis, Craddock, Jones, Ward, Fletcher, Ebanks-Blake, Stearman, Mujangi Bia, Vokes, Milijas, Elokobi, Hennessey, Batth, Doyle, Henry, Hammill, Ebanks-Blake, Foley.
