Injury concerns for Wolves

Injury concerns for Wolves

Gaffer Mick McCarthy was his usual philosophical self when discussing Wolves injury problems ahead of the clash with QPR.

Steven Fletcher is a major concern with a groin injury, the striker joins fellow forward Sylvan Ebanks-Blake on the sidelines.

Kevin Foley hasn't trained all week with an ankle injury and he and Stephen Hunt have both had to have an injection in the hopes of getting them ready.

'We'll see who's available and get on with it.' Boss Mick McCarthy told Wolves Official Website.

He added: 'I've got 24 players and that's my contingency - I'll pick the best available to me who can play,'

'That's all I can do. I'll do what I need to do.

'What can I do about it? There's not a jot I can do about it.

Vital Wolves Comment: In the absence of both SEB and Fletch, just what will McCarthy do?

It is a worry, but thats the nature of the game. Hopefully these are just early season knocks and niggles, we really don't need any long term injuries at the moment!

An early season injury to SF, alongside a defeat after a promising start, it really is Groundhog Day. This time, let's hope that after the QPR match MM wakes up in bed with Andie MacDowell (joke copyrighted by SB60, 2010).

Ill wait to see who plays on sat against QPR but if MM picks Ward what was the point in keeping Vokes as every one said should have bought striker and LB only the 5th game of season and allready people are worried about injuries to certain players does not make much sense unless MM is trying to get Mcffadden hes alright but not the most prolific of goal scorers.

kia-as i've said on previous threads, I lay the decision not to spend at the owners door.It was a high-risk strategy based on us getting the rub of the green as regards injuries, to facilitate the spend on the North Bank, quicker than was sensible.Clearly we haven't a PL class option to play up front in place of Fletch.Groundhog day sums it up nicely.

ALL4D i disagree i think MM thinks the squad is good enough got nothing to do with how much the ground improvements cost the reason for this thinking is SM is a business man he is not going to spend millions on renoventing the stadium to get more fans in just to get relegated does not make sense. I think MM has said get me Ohara and Johnson cut out the stupid mistakes and we will be fine and safe in the PL for another season which to me lacks of ambition if people out there are saying theirs no one better than Elokobi Vokes Edwards Foley well the game is in a total mess to name but 4 they will only get a game if there are injuries or suspensions or playing in the FA cup or Carling cup or we play 1 up front and a 5 man midfield because home or away for the first 4 games the team has been the same apart from jarvis out injured does that not say something.I totaly believe MM thinks he has a first 11 that will keep Wolves up and told Morgan i have a squad of 24 if i can get a free agent we will be fine i think this makes more sense than Morgan saying theres no more money and playing russian roulette.
