Hunt close to Wolves debut
Wolves midfielder Stephen Hunt is in line to finally make his debut after the forthcoming international break.
Hunt moved to Wolves from Hull in the summer despite being sidelined with a serious foot injury, sustained against Mick McCarthy's side in January.
McCarthy had always pencilled in mid-October for Hunt's return to action and he is on schedule to meet that deadline.
The Wolves manager said: "It is a possibility Steve could play for the reserves next week (at Sunderland on Tuesday).
"He trained yesterday with the development squad and he trained like the rest of them.
"That was just about his first full session. It's great for him as well to get away from the physios. That is hard work all the time."
McCarthy added: "It's a possibility he will be available after the international break (against West Ham).
"In fact, he said to me 'any chance of five to 10 minutes on Sunday?'
"I said 'no problem, mate. We are playing on Saturday!'
"But let's just put it into perspective. He has not played since January.
"He is not suddenly going to come back and take the league by storm."
