Oakes Happy With Recall

Oakes Happy With Recall

The Southbank was treated to the site of favourite son Michael Oakes trotting towards them when the second half got under way last Saturday at Molineux.

And it wasnt only the Wanderes fans that were surprised to see Michael Oakes taking the field.

It came as a shock to te 32 year old 'keeper as well.

'I was a bit surprised to play, but in football things change when you least expect them to, and that's how it was,' admits Michael talking to the clubs official ite.

And as he knows only too well himself, it only takes one match out injured for a temporary change of personel to become a regular thing.

But in keeping with Oaker's luck over the course of this season, his chance comes aliong with only one match to come.

'Unfortunately for Stefan he picked up an injury, but it was nice to get back out there.

'It was very pleasing to keep a clean sheet and, more importantly to get three points as well.

'Since I got injured earlier in the season Stefan has gone in and done really well and I've had to be patient and wait a while for my chance.

'Unfortunately, the season's coming to an end but it was nice to get back out there, I really enjoyed it.'

Oakes is well loved amongst the Molineux faithfull, and his patience in biding his time on the bench does nothing to damage the affection they bestow up on him.

As was evident by the way he was greeted by the Southbank upon taking his place between the sticks

'I got a great reception from the fans, which was nice to hear, and hopefully I'll get the chance to play next week at Norwich.

'When you haven't played for a long time you may not be as match sharp as you'd like. But I've worked hard with Bobby Mimms, who's kept me going, and it was nice to play and get three points.
