West Brom are again likely to be without striker Peter Odemwingie in Sunday's derby against Wolves.

The Baggies' six-goal top scorer is still struggling with the calf injury that forced him to miss last weekend's Barclays Premier League loss to Aston Villa. Manager Roberto di Matteo has not completely ruled out the 29-year-old Nigeria international but accepts he is unlikely to face Mick McCarthy's men at The Hawthorns.

Di Matteo told the club's website, www.wba.co.uk: "Peter's still doubtful. He's still injured and hasn't trained yet this week."

He added: "It is a little calf strain that is causing the problem and I'm not very hopeful on him at the moment.

"If Peter's not back for this game, he'll hopefully be back for the next one."
