Clarke remains sidelined

Wolverhampton Wanderers splashed the cash on Leon Clarke in January, spending 750,000 on the 29-year-old striker.

But Wolves fans are yet to see the best of the forward almost a full month on from the signing, after a heel injury restricted him to just one 90 appearance against against Bradford.

Jackett insists the forward hasn't suffered a setback in his rehabilitation, but has admitted that the injury has taken longer to heal than expected.

Clarke has been limited to gym work at Compton, whilst also running on the anti-gravity treadmills.

"I don`t think he will be considered this weekend but we are hoping for the weekend after. That`s the timescale," Wolves Head coach Kenny Jackett told the Express & Star.

He added: "We are in a situation where we are scoring goals, which is nice, but we would like him back,"

"He is a different type than we have got. That was the reason for bringing him in. But similarly we don`t want him to come back and be in exactly the same situation after two days` training or two games and be back to square one.

"So we think we`ll see how we are this week and hopefully the rest will do him good. The following game will have been five weeks without playing and that should be enough."
