Wolves v Nottm Forest preview

Christophe Berra is available for Wolves’ Championship clash

with Nottingham Forest at Molineux on Saturday, but Karl Henry

remains suspended.

Centre-back Berra was given his marching orders during the first

half of last Saturday’s 2-1 defeat at Watford but this week saw the

red card rescinded upon appeal.

Midfielder Henry started a three-match ban at Vicarage Road and

now continues that suspension against the Reds.

Otherwise, manager Stale Solbakken will not be boosted by the

returns of any of his injured players.

Winger Razak Boukari has suffered a setback after his recent

comeback from a hamstring problem and faces another two weeks out,

while defender Georg Margreitter also made his return to training

after a troublesome hip complaint only to be knocked unconscious,

forcing him back to the sidelines.

Slawomir Peszko, Steven Mouyokolo, Wayne Hennessey (all knee),

Stephen Hunt (hip), George Elokobi (ankle) and Jamie O’Hara

(hernia) remain absent.

Nottingham Forest boss Sean O’Driscoll hopes to have Andy Reid

and Jermaine Jenas available.

Winger Reid and central midfielder Jenas both limped off within

five minutes of each other early in the second half of the 1-0 home

win over Sheffield Wednesday last weekend.

They were replaced by Henri Lansbury and Adlene Guedioura

respectively, with the latter hoping he will be recalled to the

starting line-up on his return to his former club.

Other options for O’Driscoll at Molineux include defender Daniel

Ayala, midfielders James Coppinger and Lewis McGugan and former

West Brom striker Simon Cox.

Alan Hutton will also be included in the squad after Forest

snapped up the full-back on a loan deal from Aston Villa on


Dan Harding has missed two games with a hamstring injury but the

defender has resumed light training this week and could be included

in the squad.
