Guedioura ruled out for six months

Midfielder Adlene Guedioura could be out for up to six months after fracturing his tibia during Wolves' Premier League defeat to Aston Villa on Sunday.

The Algerian sustained the injury in the closing stages of the 2-1 loss following a challenge from Villa midfielder Steve Sidwell. "It's desperately disappointing news both for Adlene and the club," said the Wolves manager Mick McCarthy.
