Wolves defender Richard Stearman faces a battle to be fit for the clash with Newcastle this weekend as he has a toe injury.
Boss Mick McCarthy had been worried that he had actually cracked a bone in the toe but, after a scan, that has proved not to be the case but he is still a doubt for the clash with Newcastle on Saturday.
McCarthy dismissed fears the injury was a break, but the right-back will be checked in training before a decision is made about the game with the Magpies.
The boss told the website: "We thought he [Stearman] might have a crack in it, but he hasn't so that's good news.
"But I'd say he's a doubt for Newcastle. It depends how he reacts to training."
