Wolves’ leading scorer Steven Fletcher is available after illness for the Barclays Premier League clash at Fulham on Sunday after missing the 2-2 away draw with Newcastle last weekend.

Caretaker boss Terry Connor has to decide how to accommodate Fletcher and fellow striker Kevin Doyle, who scored the equaliser at the Sports Direct Arena, in the same line-up.

Goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey and midfielder Dave Edwards should both be fit after being ruled out of the Gary Speed Memorial Match against Costa Rica with ankle injuries.

Provisional squad: Hennessey, De Vries, Foley, Stearman, Doherty, Johnson, Bassong, Berra, Ward, Elokobi, Kightly, Hammill, Hunt, Henry, Edwards, Forde, Jarvis, Doyle, Ebanks-Blake, Fletcher, Jonsson.
