Wolves forward Ivan Cavaleiro fit to face Aston Villa

Wolves will have Ivan Cavaleiro available to face Aston Villa after he recovered from a knee injury.

The forward missed Saturday's 2-0 FA Cup third round win at Stoke but returned to training this week and is in contention.

Prince Oniangue also missed the game with illness but has recovered although Romain Saiss is on African Nations Cup duty with Morocco.

Mike Williamson played his first senior game for over a year after injury problems at Stoke and could continue against Villa.

Jordan Ayew and Jonathan Kodjia are out for Villa after they joined up with Ghana and the Ivory Coast respectively for the African Nations Cup.

Young striker Rushian Hepburn-Murphy has been told by Steve Bruce he will not feature until he signs a new deal at Villa Park.

Bruce could hand a league debut to goalkeeper Sam Johnstone after he joined on loan from Manchester United and played in the 2-0 FA Cup defeat at Tottenham.

Nathan Baker is fit after shrugging off a back injury he struggled with during the loss at White Hart Lane.
