O'Hara return on spot

O'Hara return on spot

Jamie O`Hara returned to match action in a behind closed doors friendly against Wigan on Tuesday afternoon.

The game was played at Wolves training ground at Compton Park.

O'Hara has suffered with a various pelvic and groin problems over the past nine months and hasn't featured for Wanderers since March.

It took him just 15 minutes to make an impact in this game though, as he firstly won a penalty and then converted it.

He went on to play the next half an hour and is said to have suffered no ill effects from his 45 minute run out, that of course we won't really know for sure until the next few days and when he goes on to pick up his rehabilitation and training.

The game ended 2-2 with Frank Nouble scoring the other Wolves goal.

Akela, if we are looking to OHara for refuge we are in deep trouble. The bloke is past it ... a stationary obstacle who cant pass for toffee. I agree, we are short on talent, but surely we have better options that for some or other reason Stale is turning a blind eye to. Roll on Jan Transfer, and hopefully shipping 6 or more turkeys and getting 2 or 3 quality players in. WE ARE WOLVES

Admant, I dont agree about o hara being past it, far from it. He is a good attaching midfielder who scored us a good few goals last season.

Patrickdoran i agree Ohara was one of our best players till injury struck i think him andDoumbia will be a great midfield partnership. Are only other midfielder was Edwards who is nowhere near Oharas class its not Oharas fault hes been absent for so long. If we had more players like in stead of the donkeys we have we would still be in the PL.

We're crying out for a player to convert the sideways-moving possession in-to forward momentum, so the stage is set for JOH to make a splash. Balls through the middle were also what we were desperate for last season but with the increased amount of possession he'll have in this division hopefully he can produce the killer 20-30 yard passes that we all hoped he would when we bought him. He can score, too,is a threat at free-kicks and could form a genuine goal-scoring 'partnership' from midfield with Sako. Here's hoping that he stays fit long enough to have an impact and turns out to be 'like a new signing', as they say.

If you read some of my 2011-2 season reports, you will find that I had mixed feeling about JOH. When he was fit, fresh and up for it, he shone. He also played badly at times, perhaps because he was suffering from the injury that eventually side-lined him. If he can recapture his early form, he will embellish team and provide us with the defence-splitting passes we desperately need. Of course, we have to have players who can anticipate the play and move intelligently into offensive positions. However, that's a different issue.
