Wolves boss Walter Zenga is again likely to make changes for the visit of second-placed Norwich City to Molineux.

Jon Dadi Bodvarsson and Joe Mason are due to recover from the minor knocks that saw them miss the midweek 2-1 loss at Wigan, but Zenga insists Nouha Dicko (knee) is still a few weeks away.

Norwich expect to have Swiss defender Timm Klose available after missing Wednesday’s 4-3 defeat at Newcastle.

But midfielder Youssouf Mulumbu is sidelined with a foot injury.

Former Wolves chief executive Jez Moxey will be making a quick return to Molineux, having left after 16 years’ service to take up a similar role at Norwich following Wolves’ Chinese takeover.

Wolves head coach Zenga also has a reunion with Norwich City going back a lot further, to November 1993, when he played for Inter Milan against the Canaries in a UEFA Cup third-round tie settled 2-0 on aggregate by late Dennis Bergkamp goals in both legs.
