Last time we met:
Jon Ashton and Fil Morais are both pushing for a starting place at the weekend after picking up recent knocks.
Wolves goalkeeper Carl Ikeme won't be involved as he's out until next month with a broken hand. Dave Edwards and Matt Doherty are doubts for the match as they continue to try and recover from minor injuries.

Wolves head into the game in great form; on the back of four wins in a row with an aggregate score of 10-1. It hasn’t all been going their way recently though, throughout December and early January the team were in a bit of a rot as they won only one league game in seven. The dip in form wasn’t enough to substantially damage their title challenge though, as they’re currently only two points off top.
The vital statistics:
Wolves have the best current away form in the league, 5 wins, 2 draws and a loss in their last 8 games. They also have the best record in the league against teams in the bottom half of the table – 13 wins, 2 draws and only 1 loss represents a remarkable return.
The return of Leon Clarke, the league’s top goal scorer has made shockwaves throughout League 1 as the former Coventry man re-signed for his home-town team. Clarke has scored 15 league goals this season for Coventry and with arguably the best supporting cast in the league around him, he’s expected to add many more goals to his tally. Amazingly, Clarke has played for 14 different clubs at the age of 28 but when he’s focused and in form, he’s as good as anyone in the league.
