Wolves boss Kenny Jackett expects to have Leon Clarke available for the season finale against Carlisle.

The striker missed last weekend's 1-1 draw with former club Coventry with a groin injury but he should return for the visit of the Cumbrians.

George Elokobi, who has been told he will not be offered a new contract in the summer, will be denied a farewell appearance because of a hamstring problem.

Wolves head into the clash knowing victory would give them the League One record for most points in a season.

Carlisle are expected to be without Lee Miller at Wolves after the striker was left out of the squad in midweek for disciplinary reasons.

Miller was axed from the squad and played no part in the Cumbrians' goalless draw at Crawley in midweek, which all but condemned them to relegation, after missing a team meeting last weekend.

But fellow forward Gary Madine will return to contention after missing the trip to Crawley because of curfew restrictions associated with his early prison release, but strike partner Nacho Novo (hamstring) remains doubtful.

Midfield pair Liam Noble (calf) and James Berrett (groin), plus defenders Sean O'Hanlon (groin) and Reece Brown (groin) all played at Crawley despite carrying injuries and will be monitored.
