Does Ikeme's slip up open door for Hennessey?

Does Ikeme's slip up open door for Hennessey?

Does Carl Ikeme's slip up in goal for Wolverhampton Wanderers open the door for Hennessey following his return from Yeovil?

Wayne Hennessey returned to Molinex this week after he made his final appearance for Yeovil against Wigan and wasn't allowed to extend his loan any further with the Championship side.

It's been a strange situation to be out of the picture at your current club, but able to go out on loan to a club in a higher division and not only that, impress enough to break back into the international scene for the first time in two years, but that is exactly what Wayne Hennessey has managed with Yeovil and Wales.

Hennessey has had a heartbreaking last couple of seasons after suffering two cruciate knee ligament injuries.

But following a 93-day loan spell in the Championship with Yeovil Town and making 13 appearances, he has now returned to Wolves.

Personally I would have thought that surely he would be back in contention to fight Carl Ikeme for the number one shirt at Molinuex?

But Wolves head coach Kenny Jackett continues to back Carl Ikeme, despite his slip up against Oldham which led towards us crashing out of the FA Cup in the first round.

Ikeme spilled Jonson Clarke-Harris`s free kick, allowing Danny Philliskirk to open the scoring in front of under four and a half thousand at Molinuex.

Referee Keith Stroud initially blew for a foul, probably just assuming that he had to have been impeded during the build up to the goal, but his assistant flagged for the goal to stand.

"My first impressions were that it wasn`t a foul - I haven`t seen it again but it just seemed to come off him, and I didn`t appeal for it, It`s not a criticism of Carl Ikeme there because he`s had a very good season.' Jackett told the Express & Star.

He continued: "If he made a mistake then Carl has made many saves for us and has been very good."

Vital Wolves Comment: Following Ikeme's mistake, I'd be inclined to hand Hennessey the shirt. I know it's harsh, but football is harsh and I believe Hennessey is the number one goalkeeper at Wolves.
