Foley on standby for Old Trafford clash

Foley on standby for Old Trafford clash

Versatile Republic of Ireland right-back Kevin Foley has been put on alert to make his first start for more than two months for Wolves against Manchester United at Old Trafford tomorrow.

Foley, whose season has been ruined by knee problems, is set to be drafted in on the right hand side of midfield.

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy has a hole to fill there after David Edwards was ruled out for up to 10 weeks with the ankle ligament damage he suffered against Tottenham last weekend.

Former Sunderland midfielder Greg Halford is also in contention to replace Edwards, but Foley looks set to make only his fourth start of the season.

McCarthy, who is also still without long-term injury victims Michael Kightly, Andy Keogh and David Jones, plans to make further changes to his side following the effort his players put in during the 1-0 win at Tottenham.

Team (from): Hahnemann, Stearman, Craddock, Berra, Ward, Foley, Henry, Milijas, Jarvis, Doyle, Ebanks-Blake, Surman, Mancienne, Iwelumo, Hill, Maierhofer, Castillo, Elokobi, Halford, Hennessey.
