Stale Solbakken is still looking for his first competitive win in charge of Wolverhampton Wanderers. Here, Sports Mole previews tomorrow's match against Barnsley.

Wolverhampton Wanderers head into tomorrow's encounter against Barnsley looking to bounce back from their 1-0 defeat against Leeds United on the opening weekend of the season.

Captain Karl Henry is expected to keep his place in the starting lineup for the visit of the Tykes and the midfielder is hoping that his side can collect their first three points of the campaign.

"The one good thing about this league is that the games come thick and fast," he told the club's official website. "We've got an opportunity to get a win and if we do, we can put the Leeds defeat to bed."

One player that is unlikely to feature for the hosts is Steven Fletcher, whose future at Molineux remains uncertain. Matt Jarvis could also sit the match out as speculation grows regarding a transfer to either West Ham United or Everton.

Meanwhile, visiting Barnsley could hand a debut to Martin Cranie, who has recently been training with Leeds United.

Wolves: Ikeme; Zubar, Ward, Stearman, Johnson; Peseko, Doumbia, Henry, Edwards; Ebanks-Blake, Doyle

Barnsley: Gonzalez; Cranie, Foster, Wiseman, Stones; Etuhu, Perkins, Cywka, Mellis; Davies, Dawson

Sports Mole says: 2-0
