Steven Fletcher has a “good chance” of being fit enough to take on Birmingham City on Sunday, Wolves have revealed.
The striker limped off in the 69th minute of Wolves’ 3-0 defeat to Stoke on Tuesday after pulling a hamstring.
“The injury to Fletch hopefully doesn’t seem to be as bad as it could have been,” manager Mick McCarthy told the team’s website. “He’ll continue to be monitored but has a good chance of being available for Sunday.”
Following an assessment yesterday, club doctor Steve Kemp commented: “Fortunately there is no significant damage but the knee does need time to settle and, if necessary, he could have a fitness test on either Saturday or Sunday.”
Fellow strikers Sylvan Ebanks-Blake and Kevin Doyle are also experiencing fitness woes. Ebanks-Blake is also trying to get over his hamstring problem by the weekend, while Doyle’s medial ligament injury will keep him out of action until beyond Sunday.
