Wolverhampton Wanderers have been given an injury boost as Willy Boly is ‘nearing a comeback’ ahead of Thursday’s meeting with Liverpool, reports BBC Sport.
The 28-year-old had surgery on a fractured fibula and has been out of action since October. He returned to training in January, however, and could be back out on the pitch sooner rather than later.
Boly has made 16 appearances in all competitions this season, scoring and creating two goals. His last outing came in Wolves’ 2-1 win over Slovan Bratislava (October 24).
Nuno Espirito Santo has Conor Coady, Leander Dendoncker, Romain Saiss, Ryan Bennett and Max Kilman a his disposal, so Wolves have enough options to cope without Boly.
The players will be eagerly anticipating his return, however, as Boly had only been on the losing team just once in eight league games before the injury. Wolves conceded one or less goals in seven of those matches too.
Nuno has stuck with a back three of Saiss, Dendoncker and Coady while Boly has been out and is likely to name the trio in defence against Liverpool too.
