Latest injury news for Saturday

James Henry is unlikely to be fit for tomorrow’s visit of Peterborough (3pm), but Matt Doherty and Bakary Sako have a chance of returning to the squad.

Henry went off with a groin injury in the early stages of Tuesday’s 0-0 draw at Stevenage and, while the injury is not serious, the visit of Posh may come around too soon for the eight-goal winger.

Sako has been absent from the squad for the last two games with a toe injury which has previously required injections, while Doherty was forced off with a hamstring problem in the closing stages of the victory at Sheffield United a fortnight ago.

“There are no problems from Tuesday night other than James Henry who came off very early with a groin injury,” said Head Coach Kenny Jackett.

“He will be doubtful for this Saturday.

“We’re hopeful that Bakary Sako will be available as perhaps will Matt Doherty as well.

“It would be a big boost because the dynamics of the side were certainly different when James went off (against Stevenage) from having so many games with Henry and Sako as our wide players.

“The side looked different as it does when you get key players injured.”

Saturday’s game is Wolves’ ninth fixture from a hectic 28-day period, but there have only been fairly minor niggling injuries as a result of a carefully-constructed training programme.

And after Saturday the fixture list looks far more manageable for the crucial run-in.

“We will have five games in four calendar weeks so things become more even,” added Jackett.
