Wolves' Jed Wallace out for up to six weeks

Wolves have been dealt yet another injury blow after midfielder Jed Wallace was ruled out for up to six weeks.


He limped off with a thigh strain during Saturday's 1-1 draw at Burnley.

He had been recalled from Millwall just days earlier and gave a promising performance at Turf Moor.

But Wolves' injury curse has struck yet again – meaning Kenny Jackett is now deprived of eight first-team players - with Wallace expected to be out for between four and six weeks.

Mike Williamson, James Henry, David Edwards, Ethan Ebanks-Landell, Nouha Dicko, Jordan Graham and Razak Boukari are all still sidelined, with the latter quartet out for the season.

Williamson and Henry are due back in training after the Easter weekend and may have a chance of featuring against Ipswich on April 2, depending on how they hold up in training.

David Edwards is scheduled to return next month with his recovery from a broken foot on track.

Wallace certainly has a chance of playing before the end of the season, with Wolves having four matches remaining after his earliest scheduled return date if he's out for four weeks.

Wolves medical chief Phil Hayward said: "Jed sustained an injury to his left quad during Saturday's game and scans have revealed it to be a grade two injury.

"He will be out for probably four to six weeks and we will have to see how he progresses but he has a chance to be back and available before the end of the season."
