Wallace sidelined

Midfielder out for four to six weeks

Jed Wallace faces a battle to play again this season after suffering a torn quad towards the end of his impressive return to Wolves action at Burnley on Saturday.

“Jed sustained an injury to his left quad during Saturday’s game and scans have revealed it to be a Grade Two injury,” said Head of Medical Phil Hayward.

“He will be out for probably four to six weeks and we will have to see how he progresses but he has a chance to be back and available before the end of the season.”

Wallace had been recalled from a successful loan spell at Millwall and went straight into the Wolves side for Saturday’s game.

He produced an impressive performance before having to be withdrawn in the 81st minute.

"He was very good at Burnley,” said assistant Head Coach Joe Gallen.

“You could see he’s had a good spell at Millwall.

"Confidence played a big part in the way that he played, 

“All players have to ‘do it for themselves' and he will have seen how he could compete against a top team.

"He looked quick enough, he looked strong enough and put in 10 crosses, the most of any player on the pitch.

"He probably hasn't had the chances on the right hand side due to James Henry, and maybe Rajiv van La Parra earlier on in the season.

"I think he's proved he's a wide right player who can be effective in the Championship."

And Gallen believes Wallace benefitted from the loan spell in the same way as others in previous years including Dominic Iorfa, Jack Price, Kortney Hause, Jordan Graham and George Saville.

"The step up from League One even to the Championship is huge,” added Gallen.

"So it can be difficult.

“Jed came from Portsmouth in League Two - it's a really big step up.

"Maybe he needed those games in League One to build up his confidence and then the step up's not as difficult.

"I think he's proved he's able to play as this level because that (Burnley) was the team at the top.

"It will give him a lot of confidence.

“Unfortunately he's now injured so we won't see him for a few weeks.

"But it looks like he can have a really good Championship career now."
