Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Lee Evans has certainly had some poor luck this season with injury.

Earlier this season Evans was forced to withdraw from the Wales squad ahead of their European Championship qualifiers against Bosnia-Herzeogovina and Cyprus.

Evans had impressed for Wolves and looked set to earn his first international cap for Wales when he suffered a hamstring injury in the defeat against Huddersfield.

Thankfully it wasn`t a long-term injury and would have only prevented him from training for a few days, but Wales opted to send him back to Compton.

He’s gone on to make 16 appearances this season, with all but one coming in the Championship.

The 20-year-old three weeks ago was diagnosed with a broken scaphoid which is between the hand and forearm and he played on through during the games against Ipswich Town and Derby County.

However he was not at his best and Wolves gaffer Kenny Jackett has put that down to the injury and has hinted that he might be left on the sidelines for upcoming matches.

“He`s three weeks into it and they are saying it will take six weeks for the swelling to go completely and the mobility in the wrist and the hand to be right.

“As the swelling goes down I`ll feel more comfortable he`ll be able to feel at his very best.’ Jackett told the Birmingham Mail.

He continued: “He did play two games with it at Ipswich and Derby and because of that hand injury, I didn`t think he did his best but he was one of the only ones that had an excuse.

“I didn`t feel like he was 100 per cent.

“It does affect him, it affects your turning and your balance ever so slightly but it`s enough to give him an edge and that was my reason for leaving him out.”
