Injury Worries For Hoddle

Injury Worries For Hoddle

Hoddle is worried that the club might be forced into the transfer market to look for loans in order to get some cover for Wolves crippling injury list. He is hoping that the excellent training complex and medical set up will cut the injury list quickly and feels the club are running out of excuses for not gaining promotion to the Premiership.

He said: 'The new training ground is a major, major benefit. We obviously won't be able to avoid injuries because you can't legislate for that, but we will hopefully be able to get the players back quicker than before. I'm not saying it's a reason why we are certain to get into the Premiership, but the new training ground means we have taken another positive step on the way there.'

He also says the club might have to plunge into the transfer market if injuries to key players don't clear up soon. The manager has George Ndah, Paul Ince, Rohan Ricketts, Carl Cort, Kenny Miller, Michael Oakes, Matt Murray, Mark Clyde and Mark Davies all on the treatment table rather than on the pitch.

He said 'If we were going into the Christmas period carrying the number of injured players we have at the moment then I'd be worried. Everyone knows the Christmas and New Year period is crucial because there's 12 points to play for in eight days. We're hoping we'll have players back by that time, but if not then we'll have to look at the loan market.' Adding 'You need a 22 man strong squad over the Christmas period because there will be times when you need to swap things around'.

Hoddle says there is a chance that most of the injury list will return to fitness by then and it is crucial that they have fresh legs because 'Having 12 points to play for in eight days is a ridiculous number. And if we have a bad winter - like it's being forecast - it could cause a real problem if you haven't got a strong squad.'

Although TAS lifted the ban temporarily, Roma don't know if they will be blocked from doing transfer dealings during the January window. If FIFA get their way, the ban will not be lifted.
