Wolves welcome back skipper Karl Henry for the visit of managerless Bolton.
Henry missed Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Huddersfield - the club's second loss in three games - having served a one-match suspension after collecting five bookings this season.
He is now likely to return straight into manager Stale Solbakken's starting XI in place of David Davis, although Dave Edwards is staking a claim of his own having been a positive half-time substitute for Davis at the weekend.
Goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey returns to full training this week after his lengthy recovery from a serious knee injury, as does Georg Margreitter (hip).
But Slawomir Peszko (knee), Razak Boukari (calf), Stephen Hunt (hip), George Elokobi (ankle), Jamie O'Hara (hernia) and Steven Mouyokolo (knee) remain sidelined.
Bolton have no new injury worries but caretaker manager Jimmy Phillips will take a softly-softly approach with some members of his squad.
Phillips led Wanderers to a dramatic 3-2 comeback win over Bristol City at the weekend but could be preparing for his final game at the helm following news of an official approach for Crystal Palace boss Dougie Freedman.
Although no new injuries were collected during Saturday's Reebok Stadium clash, Phillips is wary of the impact of a quick turnaround.
He said: "There's no injuries, just some tired legs. We're just using all the medical staff that are available to make sure that the players are in tip-top condition for the game on Tuesday.
"That will be rest for some, it will be training for others. That's where we'll individualise players' training needs to suit where their bodies are because, as we know, some of our players are older than the rest of the squad and they need looking after to make sure they're 100 per cent ready for selection on Tuesday.''
Knee injury victims Stuart Holden, David Wheater and Josh Vela remain long-term absentees.
