Stephen Hunt and Dave Edwards in boost for Wolves

Walsall | Sport | Published:

Wolves are set for a double boost with Stephen Hunt and Dave Edwards returning to full training.

Winger Hunt returns on Monday after recovering from a hip problem which has restricted the £3m Ireland international to just an hour's action in the Capital One Cup this season.

Midfielder Edwards is back from a torn hamstring sustained in the 4-1 win at Bristol City on December 1.

Hunt, 31, who is out of contract this summer, will give it all he can as he tries to win a new deal.

And, after allowing Jermaine Pennant to return to Stoke and welcoming back Adam Hammill back from his loan at Huddersfield, manager Dean Saunders is looking forward to seeing if Hunt can force his way into his plans.

"He's ready to train now," said the boss. "He'll be on the pitch ready to start training on Monday.

"He hasn't played for such a long time so he needs to build up his sharpness. He'll probably take two or three weeks."

Edwards is also nearing availability again. "He got through a full training session on Thursday," said the boss.

Saunders is continuing his assessment of 24-year-old Hammill after watching him in a behind-closed-doors game against Walsall on Tuesday. "I haven't decided yet," said Saunders. "It's the first time I've worked with him."
