Matt Doherty: Faces late fitness check
Team news for Saturday's League One clash between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Stevenage at Molineux.
Wolves will assess three players ahead of the visit of Stevenage as they look to maintain the heat on league leaders Leyton Orient.
Full-back Matt Doherty missed last weekend's 2-1 victory at Bradford with a hamstring injury and still remains a doubt to face Boro at Molineux.
Richard Stearman stepped in at Valley Parade but was forced off on the hour mark with a recurrence of a foot problem although he trained on Thursday.
Nine-goal leading scorer Leigh Griffiths, meanwhile, has been struggling with a virus this week and will also be checked over.
Lucas Akins, Darius Charles and Ben Chorley are still missing from the Stevenage squad which travels to high-flying Wolves.
Winger Akins serves the final match of a three-game ban for his red card against Walsall a fortnight ago, and striker Charles is recovering from ankle ligament damage.
Defender Chorley is still building up his fitness following an injury-hit start to the campaign and will not be involved.
Manager Graham Westley could name the same line-up for the third straight match having secured back-to-back wins against Crewe and Crawley without conceding a goal.
