Wolves striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake is a major doubt for tomorrow’s Barclays Premier League derby with Stoke at the Britannia Stadium.

Ebanks-Blake suffered a recurrence of a hamstring injury after appearing as a substitute during the weekend home draw with Fulham, after initially suffering the injury in the previous game against Everton when he came off at half-time.

Stephen Hunt, Steven Mouyokolo and David Jones will be added to the other 17 players on duty against the Cottagers.

Striker Kevin Doyle (medial ligament) misses out but full-back George Elokobi (hamstring) could return for the derby with West Brom on May 8.

Provisional squad: Hennessey, Stearman, Craddock, Berra, Ward, Guedioura, Henry, Milijas, Jarvis, O’Hara, Fletcher, Mancienne, Kightly, Hahnemann, Vokes, Hammill, Foley, Hunt, Mouyokolo, Jones.
