'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Hoddle Names Team Late

Glenn Hoddle may be wondering what he's done in previous life.

During the first half of Wolves 1-0 win against Ipswich he watched, helpless, as Jody Craddock, one of his most consistent defenders, when fit, left the field of play after damaging his medial ligament.

He joins Gabor Gyepes on the sidelines, and walking wounded Mark Kennedy, Colin Cameron and Paul Ince in the rehab gym as Hoddle's season long injury woes continue.

Kennedy, Ince and Cameron's respective hamstring and thigh problems are well on the mend, but none are by any means certain to start on Saturday against Hull. Or for that matter, just to take part.

Glenn Hoddle has one last training day to asess them, before naming his squad, and if one of the trio most likely to feature is in contention he will be happy. Two will be seen as a bonus.


With both Jody and Gabor sat on the sidelines, Rob Edwards heads the short list of candidates likely to partner Jo Lescott in central defence. A list that got a little shorter earlier today.

'We did think about bringing Mark Clyde back into the squad but he picked up a knock in training today which looks to have ruled out that option.' Hoddle told Wolves World today.'

Always meticulous in his preparations, to some, maybe too much so, Hoddle will not welcome even the slightest disruption to his plans for Wolves next encounter.

And with the build up not going as smoothly as anyone would like, Wolves will be relying on getting big performances from key players on Saturday afternoon.

But the question still remains of who will be fit to muster when Hoddle takes his final roll call at some point on Friday.

'I would have liked to have been planning my team and started working on things with them already but it is impossible to do that until you know if they'll be fit to play.' he said, reflecting on the latest injury list.

But necessity may also mean a third consecutive start for Mark Davies, and that won't upset many fans of the England Under 19 international midfielder.
