Some Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have been reacting to the news that Willy Boly is facing another spell on the sidelines.
The central defender missed yesterday’s 0-0 draw with Leicester City due to a hamstring problem (Birmingham Mail).
It has since transpired that Boly could be out for around a month, according to journalist Tim Spiers.
It is the second injury Boly has had this season, with the 30-year-old having already missed a handful of games in December and January.
On the face of it, it’s a big blow for Wolves with Boly having arguably proven himself as best the centre-half at the club over time since his arrival.
He has not been in the best form this season, but he was great in recent games against Chelsea, Crystal Palace and Arsenal.
It looked as though he was coming back in to form, which makes his latest setback a real frustration.
But Wolves did manage without him against a very dangerous Leicester side on Sunday, and Romain Saiss returned to the bench against the Foxes which is a positive.
Some Wolves fans on social media have, as a result, taken the news about Boly quite well.
There is optimism that the club will be able to get through the next few weeks with the Ivorian rock:

Could be worse. Kilman is a good standin just doesn’t offer as much going forwards.

That’s a big blow. Our best defender by a long way

Think could defo do with investing in a serious CB in summer, obvs need one but also Boly seem to lose several months a season with knocks. He’s quality but realistically a 20 game a season player. Now 30, will only get worse on that note.
