Squad sheets: Wolverhampton Wanderers v Sunderland
7 years ago

Mick McCarthy maintains that his Wolves side are not far short of ensnaring their much-needed prey – three points – but four successive defeats, after a stirring 2-1 victory over Manchester City, suggest that they could go hungry a while longer. Sunderland, McCarthy's former club, could provide easy pickings at the back, with Michael Turner and Titus Bramble, their central defenders, ruled out until the New Year. Still, Sunderland are unbeaten in four games, including the seismic 3-0 thumping of Chelsea at Stamford Bridge two weeks ago. Russell Kempson
