Bakary Sako: Back in the Wolves fold

Team news for Saturday's League One clash between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Coventry City at the Molineux.

Wolves welcome back influential winger Bakary Sako while captain Sam Ricketts and Matt Doherty are also on course to make it.

Illness saw Sako miss the 3-0 victory at Colchester prior to the international break, while he also sat out of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy exit to Notts County, but the Frenchman has returned to training this week.

Skipper Ricketts was forced to withdraw from Wales' senior squad due to a knee problem, while fellow defender Doherty made an early return to the Black Country having sustained a slight groin strain while representing Republic of Ireland Under-21s.

But both are winning their battles to be fit to face the Sky Blues at Molineux.

Coventry will be without Cyrus Christie for the trip to neighbours Wolves while it remains to be seen whether Billy Daniels will be available.

Right-back Christie missed last Sunday's 3-2 victory over Sheffield United having been ruled out for a month with an ankle injury sustained in the 1-0 win over Stevenage.

Forward Daniels, who featured off the bench against the Blades, has discovered he needs a hernia operation but will not undergo surgery immediately, with City hoping to have his services for the next 10 days before he goes under the knife.

Otherwise, boss Steven Pressley is expected to retain the same starting XI who saw off Sheffield United.
