Wolves still have injury problems as they bid to maintain their unbeaten start under new boss Walter Zenga.

But they have a brighter outlook on striker Nouha Dicko, who, after a year out, played 45 minutes in the Under-23s’ 1-0 win at Aston Villa on Monday.

Ipswich Town will be without David McGoldrick (ankle) and midfielder Luke Hyam (knee) for manager Mick McCarthy’s latest return to Molineux.

They are also missing striker Brett Pitman and Everton loanee Conor Grant.
