Foley among four back for Wolves

Foley among four back for Wolves

Wolves are set to be boosted by the return of winger Michael Kightly, striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, Republic of Ireland right-back Kevin Foley and central defender Jody Craddock for Sunday’s clash against Fulham at Molineux.

England under-21 international Kightly has been sidelined since March by hip and foot problems but he made a successful reserve team comeback in midweek and is in contention to play a role against Fulham.

Ebanks-Blake (hamstring) and Foley (knee) were both injured in the opening game of the season against West Ham and Craddock (hamstring) was injured in training during the recent international break.

Ecuador international midfielder Segundo Castillo, who is on loan from Red Star Belgrade, is pushing to make his debut.

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy could also hand a first start to striker Stefan Maierhofer after the Austrian international scored on his debut as a substitute at Blackburn last weekend following his £1.8m move from Rapid Vienna.

Team (from): Hennessey, Hahnemann, Ikeme, Foley, Berra, Stearman, Zubar, Craddock, Elokobi, Hill, Kightly, Halford, Surman, Henry, Milijas, Castillo, Jones, Edwards, Jarvis, Ebanks-Blake, Maierhofer, Keogh, Vokes, Doyle.
