Wolves will assess three players ahead of the visit of Stevenage as they look to maintain the heat on league leaders Leyton Orient.

Full-back Matt Doherty missed last weekend's 2-1 victory at Bradford with a hamstring injury and still remains a doubt to face Boro at Molineux.

Richard Stearman stepped in at Valley Parade but was forced off on the hour mark with a recurrence of a foot problem although he trained on Thursday.

Nine-goal leading scorer Leigh Griffiths, meanwhile, has been struggling with a virus this week and will also be checked over.

Lucas Akins, Darius Charles and Ben Chorley are still missing from the Stevenage squad which travels to high-flying Wolves.

Winger Akins serves the final match of a three-game ban for his red card against Walsall a fortnight ago, and striker Charles is recovering from ankle ligament damage.

Defender Chorley is still building up his fitness following an injury-hit start to the campaign and will not be involved.

Manager Graham Westley could name the same line-up for the third straight match having secured back-to-back wins against Crewe and Crawley without conceding a goal.
