Home » EPL, Latest » Match Preview: Wolves vs Blackburn

Wolves skipper and defender Roger Johnson is included in the squad after being disciplined for being in an unfit condition to train on Monday.

Johnson, dropped for the past two games, and on-loan Tottenham defender Sebastien Bassong, who has recovered from a hamstring injury, are in contention after the 5-0 defeat at Fulham last weekend.

Midfielder David Davis, recalled from a loan spell at Chesterfield, is included in the squad as a possible replacement for Karl Henry who is sidelined with a hamstring injury.

Fellow midfielder Dave Edwards resumed training on Thursday after two weeks out with a knee injury while top scorer Steven Fletcher has recovered from illness.

Blackburn manager Steve Kean has extra defensive options at his disposal, with both Gael Givet and Jason Lowe returning from suspension.

It is unlikely the duo will break into the Scot’s starting line-up, though, with both short of match practice.

One man who could start at Molineux is David Dunn, with the midfielder having come off the bench against Aston Villa last week to score the equaliser in a 1-1 draw.

Wolves (from): Hennessey, De Vries, Foley, Stearman, Doherty, Johnson, Bassong, Berra, Ward, Elokobi, Kightly, Hammill, Hunt, Davis, Edwards, Forde, Jarvis, Doyle, Ebanks-Blake, Fletcher, Jonsson.

Blackburn (from): Robinson, Orr, Dann, Givet, Hanley, Lowe, Martin Olsson, Pedersen, Petrovic, Nzonzi, Hoilett, Dunn, Yakubu, Formica, Modeste, Goodwillie, Marcus Olsson, Rochina, Vukcevic, Henley, Blackman, Bunn.
