Wolves Injury Updates

Wolves Injury Updates

Mick McCarthy has reported that defenders Christophe Berra and Stephen Mouyokolo came through training with no further reaction to their respective injuries.

Better still, Ronald Zubar is back in training, but Saturday will come to soon for any involvement.

The only bad news is that Jody Craddock has had to take a step back in his rehabilitation after suffering a mild set back.

Mick proved most pleased about the Berra update saying, 'It`s a boost, especially with Berra, because he`s been first-choice, so I`m delighted to have them fit.'

Whilst Kevin Foley is providing stability at right back with some excellent performances, Wolves have now shipped 23 goals this season which is now nearing two per game.

Craddock has been sorely missed, Berra seems to be coming in for what is in my opinion some unfair criticism of late, Richard Stearman has shown us the good, the bad and the ugly sides of his game, and none of us are yet able to pass judgment regarding Mouyokolo after one start.

The left back position seems the one that most troubles Wolves fans with many still unconvinced Stephen Ward is good enough for the role- the same has been said of Big George- Our recent poll had 70 per cent backing Van Damme to be given a run, which I agree with.

The Zubar return has to be the most eagerly anticipated and whilst he looked outstanding on the right, perhaps Foley's form and the instability of our central defenders could see him given a chance in the middle.

Whoever plays on Saturday I am predicting a bagful of goals- I wish I had more confidence in predicting a winner.

I never thought I would be so pleased to read that Berra had recovered from his injury. Nice to see that Mouyokolo is fit too. I wonder whom MM will pick on Saturday? It will probably be Berra and Stearman but I would be more confident if the latter stopped getting these rushes of blood to the head. If only Premier League football allowed defenders a few moments to weigh up the options before committing themselves. I suppose that's why clubs pay many millions for those who can think at the same speed as the game.

I think we would all agree that Stearman is a quality defender on his day and he has a lot of Premiership experience for one so young. Unfortunately some players never lose that uncanny knack for 'losing it.' Personally I don't understand it. It's not rocket science. If I made the same mistakes at work repeatedly for two years I would probably be looking for something else, and with Mick being a former stolid defender himself he is only going to put up with it for so long. I wrote a story over the summer, 'Fears for Stears' because I thought he was ready for the door but Mick has kept the faith with him and he has/is being given his chance in the side. I truly hope he learns from his mistakes because at his age I think he can become a great servant for our club for many years to come but he has to cut out those errors. I still think he will play at the weekend by the way.
