Wolves keeper Wayne Hennessey out for six months


Wolverhampton Wanderers goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey has been ruled out for six months with a knee injury, doing yet more harm to the bottom-placed club's slim hopes of Premier League survival.

"Closer examination has confirmed damage to his cruciate ligament – a setback to keep him out until the autumn," a club statement said yesterday.

Wolves are eight points adrift of safety with only four games left to play.
