Wolves will be without winger Ivan Cavaleiro as they prepare for their final game of the season against Preston on Sunday.

The winger was shown a straight red-card for an off-the-ball incident during their 3-1 defeat at Derby and will serve a three-match ban.

Goalkeeper Andy Lonergan is doubtful as he struggles to recover from a back injury but winger Jordan Graham could earn his first start since a 15-month lay-off with a knee problem.

Joe Mason and Silvio are in contention to feature as Paul Lambert’s side look to end a three-game winless run in the Championship.

Ben Pearson and Paul Gallagher are back from suspension for Preston.

Midfielder Pearson has missed three games having picked up 15 yellow cards, while forward Gallagher sat out the draw with Rotherham having been sent off against Newcastle.

Manager Simon Grayson remains without Tom Clarke (Achilles), Greg Cunningham (broken leg) and John Welsh (calf), while Calum Woods (knee) goes the entire season without featuring.

North End are winless in five, though a point would be enough to guarantee them a top-half finish.
