West Brom striker Peter Odemwingie is battling to overcome a foot problem in time for the derby clash.
Simon Cox and Somen Tchoyi are in contention to replace Odemwingie, last season's top scorer with 15 goals, if he is ruled out.
Summer signing Billy Jones is in line to make his first Premier League start at right-back should Steven Reid fail to recover from his fractured hand.
Wolves striker Steven Fletcher has been ruled out with a calf injury suffered in training.
It leaves Kevin Doyle as the only fully fit experienced striker, with Sylvan Ebanks-Blake not match-fit after a two month lay-off following a knee setback.
Left-back George Elokobi is also sidelined with an ankle injury as Wolves look to end a run of four successive defeats.
