POLL: Wolves injury woes take turn for worse

Wolves were today sweating on whether David Edwards was set for a lengthy absence – as boss Kenny Jackett said players would not be signed for the sake of it.

Edwards hobbled off in agony after turning his ankle during the closing stages of Saturday's spirited 1-1 draw against QPR.

And Jackett said: "It doesn't look good."

The Wales international was due to have a scan today to properly assess the problem and put a timescale on his return.

He joins a growing injury list which currently includes Michal Zyro (calf), Emiliano Martinez (thigh), Kortney Hause (hamstring), Bjorn Sigurdarson (back) and Razak Boukari, Nouha Dicko and Jordan Graham, all out for the long term with serious knee injuries.

Sigurdarson was 'in too much pain to play' according to Jackett after his back injury again reoccurred on Friday.

He has a free week now in which to prove his fitness before Wolves' next game, at home to Bolton a week tomorrow.

By then Jackett, who admits Wolves need 'a hell of a run' to make the play-offs, will hope to have brought in, at the very least, one new signing. But he tempered expectations of supporters by saying that, despite Wolves' need to strengthen, the club wouldn't bring anyone in just to make up the numbers.

Both permanent and loan signings are being looked at.

"It's hard to bring the right players in. And unless you do, you're better off doing nothing," he said.

"We'll see how next week develops. We feel we need to strengthen. If we can make the right acquisitions then I think we can do very well in this division.

"As a side I don't think we need the most additions – we don't need to reconstruct what is a spirited squad.

"With the right additions, we certainly feel we can climb the table."
