Wolves midfielder David Edwards makes his long-awaited comeback against Millwall in the Carling Cup insisting he's stronger than ever.

The Wales international hasn't played since the 4-0 win over Blackpool in February after suffering a back problem, which at one stage looked like it may need surgery only to be corrected by core strengthening exercises.

Now the 25-year-old, who is three short of 100 appearances for Wolves, hopes his injury worries are over for good ahead of tonight's game.

He said: "I'm fully fit and it would be a great chance if I can play. It's nice to have found out the cause of all the problems – lots of niggles were probably related to the back problem at the end of February.

"It's made me stronger as a person and I feel I've grown up a lot in the last six months, both on and off the pitch. I found out a lot about myself because it's very mentally draining.

"A lot of the time when you're injured you can still do weight programmes but, for three or four months, I was at home and putting on weight.

"I was doing core exercises every day and, looking back at videos of me from a year ago, it's a million miles different in terms of how much stronger I am in that region."
