Wolves hope that goalkeeper Carl Ikeme will recover from the stomach bug he picked up while on international duty.

Midfielder Dave Edwards is out (foot), but James Henry (hamstring) will be assessed and Mike Williamson is close to recovering from a gluteus problem.

Ipswich could welcome back Teddy Bishop who has been out for this season with hamstring and shin complaints.

David McGoldrick may be in the squad following a hamstring injury but Daryl Murphy (calf) is set to miss out.


  • Wolves have won just one of their past six games against the Tractor Boys (D3 L2).
  • Ipswich have been victorious only once in their past 13 visits to Molineux (D7 L5).
  • No team has scored more goals at home in the opening 15 minutes than Wolves this season (six).
  • Daryl Murphy hasn’t scored away from home in the Championship since December.
  • Wolves have failed to score in just one of their past 10 games at Molineux.
  • No side has netted more headed goals in the Championship in 2015-16 than Ipswich (13).
