Wolves' long-term casualties David Edwards and Sam Vokes have returned to training – as Adlene Guedioura returned to Qatar to continue his rehabilitation.

Edwards joined the development group yesterday as he battled back from a back injury that has kept him out since February.

Fellow Wales international Vokes hasn't played all summer because of an ankle problem, but manager Mick McCarthy revealed both are working towards full recovery.

He said: "Dave has got to play some games because he's hardly trained from coming back originally. He's got to train fully every day and play games and he will be fine.

"He was with the development group yesterday because the first team were just cooling down.

"The ones who weren't involved with the first team at the weekend have been doing their testing and training individually.

"Dave trained with the development group but he'll join the main group when he's fit."

Meanwhile, Guedioura has returned to the world class Aspetar orthopaedic and sports medicine hospital in Doha, Qatar to aid his treatment after ankle surgery.

McCarthy said: "Adlene has had his operation and he's in Qatar having the first bit of his rehabilitation and then he will be back here.

"I have spoken to him and had text messages from him and he's feeling really optimistic about himself.

"He will be back when he's fit, but he's optimistic that he will be back by the six weeks stated at the time or sooner."

McCarthy also revealed why Michael Kightly missed out on the 18 at Blackburn as the winger is fully fit following a minor knee knock.

The Wolves boss said: "Kightly trained at the end of last week and travelled with us.

"He had missed something like five days and I just decided not to put him on the bench."
