Wolves winger Michael Kightly will miss Sunday's derby against West Brom due to a back injury but is in line to return to action against Newcastle on February 25.

Kightly suffered the setback during the home defeat against Liverpool last Tuesday and was ruled out of the weekend win at QPR. Wolves hope a two-week break from action after the derby will enable him to recover for the visit to face Newcastle.

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy said: "Kights is resting at the moment but the aim is to have him training again and available for the Newcastle game."
