Bakary Sako is among several senior Wolves players who will enjoy a runout to boost their match fitness in a behind-closed-doors friendly today.
Sako has recovered from the illness which saw him ruled out of Wolves’ last two games amid interest from Nottingham Forest which Head Coach Kenny Jackett admitted had also affected the winger.
Having not played for over a fortnight he will now return to action for a largely young side against Notts County at Compton today ahead of the first team visit of Coventry on Saturday (3pm).
“Sako is o-k and he looked sharp in training yesterday,” said Jackett.
“Yes he will be involved at the weekend.
“He’s certainly fully focused and looking forward to this run of games.
“As he says, he wants to put the Nottingham Forest episode behind him.
“Whether it resurfaces again who knows? But if it does, it will be from their end.
“He’s of a mindset now that he’s going to concentrate on Wolves and if anything happens now, it will happen off his own good play, and he needs to get back to playing.
“Those are his words, not mine.
“It (Forest saga) has been a feature of the first few months of the season, including pre-season of who’s coming in for our players.
“That’s been part of it and as a League One, that does happen anyway.”
Others who could get some game time this afternoon include George Elokobi, Ethan Ebanks-Landell, Dave Edwards and Jake Cassidy.
*Although the Compton training ground is now open to supporters with the exception of the day before a game, supporters are advised it will be CLOSED today due to the behind-closed-doors fixture.
