Stephen Hunt and Jamie O'Hara return to the Wolves lineup for the visit of Sunderland after serving one-match suspensions.

Wolverhampton Wanderers welcome back midfielder Jamie O'Hara and Stephen Hunt for this afternoon's tie against Sunderland at Molineux.

The duo missed out last time because of suspension but return straight into Mick McCarthy's starting lineup.

Centre back Richard Stearman remains on the sidelines after a wrist injury but does make the bench.

For the visitors, who have new manager Martin O'Neill watching from the stands, Ji Dong-Won makes his first start of the season, replacing Michael Turner in the Black Cats XI.

Wolves: Hennessey; Zubar, Craddock, Berra, Ward; Jarvis, Edwards, O'Hara, Hunt; Doyle, Fletcher

Sunderland: Westwood; Bardsley, O'Shea, Brown, Richardson; Larsson, Cattermole, Colback, Sessegnon; Ji, Bendtner
