Wolves will be without attacker Hee Chan Hwang for their clash against Aston Villa this weekend, as per their official club website.

The Midlands outfit have also been dealt a blow on the injury front with key forward Pedro Neto and he could be sidelined for the rest of the season.

Jean-Ricner Bellegarde, Craig Dawson and Matheus Cunha could all be back available though which would be a boost for them.

Wolves lost 3-2 against Coventry City in the FA Cup quarter-final last time out and missed out on a trip to Wembley in the semi-finals.

They have had a decent season under Gary O'Neil and will be keen to bounce back from their defeat to the Sky Blues in their last outing.

BBC Radio WM reporter Mike Taylor has delivered his verdict on Aston Villa's next opponents: “It's become clear that this is a squad powered in no small part by emotion. Fans have seen players’ determination to fight through the most high-pressure situations, and the bond between the supporters and the players has been fully restored. It has been obvious how much the players care.

"But investing such passion in work can be tiring, and twice recently – against Manchester United and now Coventry – having scaled a mountain, Wolves have lost focus, and wearily collapsed off the top of it.

“O’Neil and his players are determined that their whole season will not go the same way. With the handicap of several injuries, avoiding that will be difficult, but the international break – even with many players away – may help them approach the challenge with fresher minds at least. A change of scenery will hopefully prove as good as a rest.”
