Boost for Wolves as Karl Henry set to return

Captain Karl Henry is on track to hand Wolves a boost by returning to action against Leicester in eight days' time.

The 29-year-old midfielder has missed the last two Championship games against Derby and Cardiff as well as the Capital One Cup tie against Northampton with a hamstring injury.

But manager Stale Solbakken said Henry will rejoin full training when the majority of the squad return after the international break.

"He'll be back in training next Tuesday so he can have a good few days' training before the Leicester game," said Solbakken.

"He's been out for two or three weeks but he was nearly fit and he broke down. I think the medical team are afraid of him breaking down so they want to give him two or three extra days.

"But I think he will be in contention for Leicester."

One of the players who has filled in Henry's position, David Davis, has been backed to recover his form.

Davis has suffered a dip of late as he has struggled to reproduce his displays from his debut season.

Solbakken said: "He's already played quite a lot this season and I hope he will come good again. We've been forced to use too many youngsters which isn't good for their education."
