Blackburn sweating on Etuhu virus
Dickson Etuhu remains a doubt as Blackburn prepare for their first home game of the post-Steve Kean era against Wolves.
Etuhu was absent from Wednesday night's goalless draw at Nottingham Forest after being struck down with a virus.
Although the former Manchester City and Fulham midfielder has resumed some light training duties at Rovers' Brockhall training base, caretaker manager Eric Black is not overly optimistic about his prospects for the weekend.
"He came in on Thursday morning and very briefly went on the bike a little bit in the gym," said Black. "I would still say it's touch and go to be honest, but we'll see how he improves."
Marcus Olsson (hamstring) and Leon Best (knee) remain on the sidelines, but Best's fellow forward Colin Kazim-Richards returned to action as a substitute against Forest following his own knee complaint and is relishing turning out at Ewood Park once more.
"It feels like it's been for ever - it's been six weeks," said Kazim-Richards, who scored two goals in as many games at the start of the season. "It's great to be back and I just can't wait for Saturday."
Stale Solbakken will again be forced to reshuffle his Wolves side after another injury to one of his wide players.
Slawomir Peszko has been ruled out for between four to six weeks with strained knee ligaments sustained during Tuesday night's 2-1 home defeat to Crystal Palace.
The Polish winger was only recalled to Wolves' starting XI after fellow wide man Razak Boukari was sidelined for three weeks with a calf injury picked up against Sheffield Wednesday last weekend.
Stephen Hunt has also recently been forced to undergo a hip operation, joining long-term absentees George Elokobi (ankle), Jamie O'Hara (hernia) and Steven Mouyokolo (knee) in the treatment room.
Goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey (knee) has, however, been given the green light to resume full training after the forthcoming international break.
