Quick Return To Action Suits Keeper


12:30 23rd October 2012

Carl Ikeme is welcoming Wolves’ quick return to action tonight as an opportunity to get over Saturday’s disappointment.

The club’s first home game for three weeks can’t come round soon enough for the keeper, who is an ever-present in the npower Championship this season.
“Roll on Bolton, so we can put Saturday’s result right,” he said.
“Hopefully we can put the defeat behind us. We know we could have done better and we need to move on to the next game because they come thick and fast.
“It will be another tough game – they’ve kept a lot of their players from when they went down.
“I spoke to Mark Davies last week and he’s looking forward to it. It will be interesting to see what reception he gets.
“I wasn’t there when he won that penalty last time but he’s a good player. I’ve known him a long time and remember him at 14. He was always going to be a top player but it didn’t really work out for him here. Fair play to him. He moved on and kicked his career on.”

Bolton’s preparations for the game have included an approach for approval to speak to Crystal Palace manager Dougie Freedman about the current Reebok vacancy.
Palace granted permission, having initially rejected it, and lenses could be pointed at the directors’ box this evening to see whether any likely candidates are present.
“It could work for them or against them being without a manager,” Carl added. “But they’ve got good players, so it will be a tough game whoever’s in charge. They’re professionals and they’re going to want to win.
“It’s just a matter of us going into this next game and thinking about what we could have done better on Saturday.
“We didn’t start as good as we should have done. We got a goal but just couldn’t get another. We had chances and, on another day, we’d have probably ended up winning it.”

Wolves' goalkeeper jersey is set to become even hotter property after Wayne Hennessey made his comeback from long-term injury last night.
