West Brom head coach Roy Hodgson will await late fitness checks on striker Shane Long and midfielder Graham Dorrans.

Long has been troubled by a back complaint and chest pains and has only been able to train on his own this week, while Dorrans is suffering from a hip problem.

Hodgson has to decide whether to give first starts to transfer deadline day signings, left-back Liam Ridgewell and midfielder Keith Andrews. Skipper Chris Brunt (ankle) and fellow midfielder Zoltan Gera (knee) are long-term absentees.

Wolves will check on the fitness of central midfielders Jamie O’Hara (groin) and Dave Edwards (thigh) before the game.

Manager Mick McCarthy is already without Emmanuel Frimpong, who returned to Arsenal after rupturing knee ligaments, and the suspended Karl Henry in that department of his side.

Winger Michael Kightly (back) is also sidelined while right-back Kevin Foley is battling to overcome an ankle problem.

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

West Brom (from): Foster, Fulop, Reid, Jara-Reyes, Olsson, McAuley, Dawson, Tamas, Mattock, Ridgewell, Shorey, Mulumbu, Andrews, Morrison, Thorne, Scharner, Dorrans, Thomas, Tchoyi, Cox, Fortune, Odemwingie, Long.
