Team News: Wolves v Arsenal

Wolves captain Roger Johnson may return for the clash against Arsenal after he was dropped for Saturday’s 2-1 defeat against Stoke.

The defender was dropped to the bench a week after his on-field confrontation with Wanderers goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey in the 3-2 defeat to Bolton although manager Terry Connor insisted the incident played no part in his decision to omit Johnson.

Only Jamie O’Hara, Stephen Hunt and Jody Craddock are unavailable for the bottom side.

Squad: Hennessey, De Vries, Zubar, Foley, Stearman, Johnson, Bassong, Berra, Ward, Kightly, Henry, Davis, Milijas, Edwards, Jarvis, Doyle, Ebanks-Blake, Fletcher, Jonsson, Forde.
