Doherty A Doubt

Injury news ahead of Stevenage visit.

Kenny Jackett hasn’t entirely ruled Matt Doherty out of Saturday’s meeting with Stevenage at Molineux although he admits that the defender’s chances of playing are slim.

Apart from Leigh Griffiths missing training today suffering from the effects of a heavy cold, the head coach otherwise has a fully fit squad available for the visit of the Hertfordshire team.

“Matt missed training again today, he isn’t quite back from his hamstring injury. We should know more tomorrow but you would have to put him down as doubtful,” said Kenny who then revealed better news of Kevin Foley, the victim of a persistent ankle niggle, Richard Stearman who limped from the field during last weekend’s victory at Bradford with a foot injury, and of Jack Price who has twice in recent weeks been the victim of migraine attacks which have resulted in double vision.

He had to leave the field when Coventry visited Molineux and withdrew from the squad prior to the game at Bradford after suffering another attack. 

“Kevin has trained all week and he is fit, Richard Stearman is fine after coming off at Bradford and Leigh Griffiths is suffering from a heavy cold and we will assess him in the next 48 hours.”

“Jack has had everything checked out and he should be ok. Now he just needs some time training and playing to build up his own confidence that it’s not going to come back. But we’ve checked him out this week and really don’t see any problems going forward.” 

Regarding the visit of Stevenage, Kenny added: “It’s the first time that these sides have met. There has been quite a bit of distance in the football pyramid between Wolves and Stevenage in recent years, and now we’re fighting on an equal footing.

“Graham Westley is a man that I know very well and he’s done an excellent job and really steadied Stevenage down. And off the back of two very good wins in their last two games, I’m sure that they will be looking to follow that up on Saturday.”
