Its a mixed bag of news for Wolves fans regarding the state of their long term injury sufferers.

Seyi Olofinjana, of whom so much was expected this season has this week had some bad news.

Specialists say he needs at least 6 or 7 weeks of complete rest to help cure his back problem, which must surely rule him out for the rest of the season.

The news will come as a bitter blow for Seyi having already missed out on an African Nations Cup place due to the niggling complaint.

Better news for George Ndah though. After looking like he was due to get back to something approaching his best George suffered a torn medial ligament in his last outing, when he was virtually kicked out of the game.

He is now back up and running and hopes to be in full training inside a month.

Matt Murray is continuing on his path to reclaim the starting ‘keepers slot and is progressing well, as is Jackie McNamara recovering from cruciate ligament surgery.

There is also news on two walking wounded.

Carl Cort is still being closely monitored after a clear up operation on his knee. There is still some mild reaction when he plays, but the situation is not thought to be cause for concern.

Young talent Mark Davies has a bruised ankle bone picked up in a tackle against Manchester United. Again, he’s being monitored closely but its hoped he could be fit to face Crewe at the weekend.

And finally, Mark Clyde, who has not featured in the first team since February last year returns for the reserves tonight against Nuneaton Borough in the fourth round of the Birmingham Senior Cup.

Mark was initially sidelined by an ankle injury, and then a hip problem halted his comeback once he had recovered from his ankle knock. But now he joins Matt Murray, eager to compete for a first team slot as they both build up some much needed match fitness.

Welcome back to the pack Mark.
