Carl Ikeme, Bakary Sako and Dave Edwards will miss the rest of the season with different injuries.

Wolverhampton Wanderers will be without three of their senior players for the remainder of the Championship campaign.

Goalkeeper Carl Ikeme has undergone an operation to mend his broken hand, while winger Bakary Sako has suffered a hamstring tear.

Welsh international midfielder Dave Edwards has also had his season ended following confirmation that he has broken his fifth metatarsal.

"Carl has undergone surgery on his broken hand which has included some metalwork going in there which will be removed in five weeks' time,"the club's head of medical Phil Hayward is quoted as saying by the Express & Star. "It's going to be difficult for him to feature again this season.

"Bakary suffered a grade two hamstring tear during the first half against Bristol City, and will be sidelined for six to eight weeks. While we'll be doing everything we can to get him back at the lower end of that range, recovery can often take eight weeks so it will be a battle for him to play again this season.

"Dave suffered a stress fracture of his fifth metatarsal, an injury not uncommon at this stage of the season, especially in players who cover as much ground in a week as Dave. He'd noticed an ache during the first few minutes, and picked up a kick to the same area, and with the concern he'd suffered a bone injury, this proved to be the case and he immediately came off."

The news of the injury problems has come with Wolves second from bottom in the Championship standings.
