Wayne Hennessey is back in contention for Wolves' home clash against promotion rivals Preston.

The goalkeeper has apologised for refusing to play in last Friday's 1-0 defeat at Gillingham and is now available for selection following an internal disciplinary. He will compete with Aaron McCarey to face North End.

First-choice stopper Carl Ikeme (broken hand) remains sidelined along with defenders Ethan Ebanks-Landell (ankle) and Matt Doherty (hamstring) as well as midfielder Jack Price (knee).

However, defender Richard Stearman returns from a one-match suspension while striker Liam McAlinden is back in training after glandular fever.

Simon Grayson has the luxury of having a Preston squad without any injuries or suspensions as he takes his team to promotion rivals Wolves.

Midfielder Neil Kilkenny is available after he joined on a permanent contract at the end of his loan spell this week, as is defender Scott Wiseman, who penned an 18-month deal following his release by Barnsley.

Top scorer Joe Garner will hope for a recall to the starting XI after only coming on as a substitute in the 1-1 draw with Ipswich in the FA Cup last weekend.

Jack King missed that long trip as Grayson uses him sparingly following a recent broken foot, so the utility man could be another that comes into contention.
