Wolves midfielder Karl Henry faces month out with injury
Tuesday 06 March 2012
Wolves midfielder Karl Henry will be out of action for three to four weeks with a hamstring injury, the club have confirmed.
Former captain Henry suffered the setback during the first half of Sunday's 5-0 defeat by Fulham at Craven Cottage.
He underwent a scan yesterday afternoon which confirmed the extent of the injury.
Following the news about Henry, Wolves caretaker boss Terry Connor has recalled midfielder David Davis from a loan spell at Chesterfield.
Connor said: "Karl has had the scan which has shown up a hamstring strain, and he is expected to be out for three to four weeks.
"As a result of his injury, and also with Dave Edwards being unavailable at Fulham, we have decided to recall David Davis from his loan spell at Chesterfield.
"It gives us another option given the injuries and we've had David watched closely on loan at both Inverness and Chesterfield this season where he has done very well."
Henry had only just returned to action after having to serve a three-match suspension for his red card against Aston Villa last month.
Connor admitted after the five-goal mauling by Fulham that Wolves do not have another combative midfielder in the Henry mould.
