O'Neil provides injury update on Cunha

Gary O’Neil has provided an update on Matheus Cunha, who sustained a hamstring injury during Saturday’s defeat to Brentford at Molineux.

The Brazilian was forced to leave the field of play in the 20th minute and undertook a series of tests and scans earlier this week.

Speaking on Wednesday, O’Neil said: “It’s a fairly significant injury to his hamstring. There’s no timeline on it. I’ve spoken to Matheus a lot and he just wants to keep pushing to get back as soon as he can.

“He’s started working on it already, so we’re just going to monitor it week by week, day by day, see how far he can come and how quickly we can get him back. He’s keen to get back out there as soon as possible.

“It’s obviously a big blow to us, to the team and Matheus because of the work he’s been doing – the form he was in was exceptional. These things happen, every team suffers injuries. Channy was gone for over a month with the Asian Cup and we managed to keep ploughing on and we need to do the same without Matheus.”
