Murray Out For Season

Matt Murray must lie in bed at night wondering how many black cats he's run over.

The 6ft 4' 'keeper has had nothing but bad luck with injury after injury sidelining him since his first full season between the sticks in 2002/3.

Last seasons heroic displays saw him on the verge of an England call-up, only to have it snatched away by a shoulder injury picked up on the eve of the Play Off Semi Finals.

Following his recovery, he then damaged his cruciate ligaments in pre season training, and following surgery, now looks set to miss the rest of the season.

Speaking on the clubs official site, Physio Barry Holmes said

'I spoke to him yesterday and he feels fine. He's resting up at home for a few days then he will be back in with us next week to start his rehab work. But he's going to be out for six or seven months at least.'

The news will come as a bitter blow to the player, but its effects at the club are slightly cushioned by the emergence of Wayne Hennessey as a more than capable replacement.

And with goalkeepers careers extending beyond that of the average outfield players, there should still be plenty of years left in Matt Murray when he returns.

But any hopes of a Premiership move or breaking into the National side will now be long term goals to focus on during rehabillitation, rather than short term aims
for the coming season.

He can look forward to playing in the Premiership --- but only with Wolves !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Prior to last seasons injury, a highly placed source at the club felt that failure to secure promotion would lead to an inevetable exit. The only silver lining to hs current malaise is the fact that is now a very distant threat
