Wolves v Burnley preview

BY foxsports • April 26, 2013

Wolves manager Dean Saunders will run the rule over Bakary Sako ahead of Saturday's Championship clash with Burnley at Molineux.

The Frenchman looked set to miss the rest of the campaign when he injured his hamstring in the middle of March, but he has made good progress in his recovery and could be ready in time to help Wolves stave off a second successive relegation.

Midfielder Jamie O'Hara will serve the final game of a three-match suspension he picked up for seeing red against Huddersfield.

Long-term absentees David Davis (ankle), Carl Ikeme (broken hand), Sylvan Ebanks-Blake (broken leg), Dave Edwards (metatarsal) and Razak Boukari (calf) will not play again this season.

Burnley could have Michael Duff available for the trip.

The experienced defender last featured in the derby draw against Blackburn due to a calf problem but is nearing a return to action.

A defeat could leave the Clarets within two points of the relegation zone with a game to play and they are likely to go into the crucial fixture without Ben Mee.

The defender is a major doubt as he continues to struggle with the hamstring injury he sustained against Leeds.

Top scorer Charlie Austin will not feature again this season after having his appendix removed.
