Bassong misses out for Wolves

Wolves’ on-loan defender Sebastien Bassong will be unavailable through suspension for tomorrow’s Barclays Premier League clash with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

Wolves’ on-loan defender Sebastien Bassong will be unavailable through suspension for tomorrow’s Barclays Premier League clash with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

The Tottenham player has to serve a one-game ban after being red-carded for bringing down Theo Walcott during the 3-0 midweek home defeat by Arsenal. Christophe Berra is likely to deputise if he recovers from an ankle knock.

Wolves boss Terry Connor will assess the fitness of midfielder Dave Edwards (hamstring) before finalising his line-up as he bids for his first win as interim manager.

Provisional squad: Hennessey, De Vries, Zubar, Foley, Stearman, Doherty, Johnson, Berra, Ward, Kightly, Henry, Davis, Milijas, Edwards, Jarvis, Doyle, Ebanks-Blake, Fletcher, Jonsson, Gorman, Price.
