Wolves key midfielder Karl Henry has lost his battle to be fit for the weekend Barclays Premier League clash with leaders Manchester United at Molineux.

Henry suffered a hamstring strain 10 days ago and had admitted he was "touch and go" to be available to face the Red Devils, but caretaker boss Terry Connor has ruled former skipper Henry out of his plans for Sunday's game and hopes he will be available to face Norwich on March 24.

Connor said: "Karl is 'touch and go' for whether he can be out training again this week. I think that's what he was really saying. Later in the week he will be back doing some sort of training but, as for the United game, I'm not really planning with him in mind."
