Wolves provide squad update after double postponement

Wolves have provided supporters with a squad update, following news the games against Watford and Arsenal were postponed.

News dropped on Boxing Day that Wolves are now done for 2021, after having their request to call off the game with the Gunners approved.

This, after the Boxing Day clash with Watford was also postponed at the Hornets’ request.

Wolves were unable to fulfil their fixture against Arsenal due to several positive Covid tests within the squad.

The club say six players have tested positive.

That took the total to 10 players unavailable to face Arsenal adding in the injured players.

Wolves have also provided a bit of information on some of those injured stars.

Pedro Neto and Jonny Castro Otto are still on track to return in the new year, with both players close to resuming full training.

These was also an update on Hwang Hee-chan and Yerson Mosquera.

Hwang will be out until February, after suffering a hamstring injury early on against Brighton.

Mosquera was thought to be returning around mid-January, but like Hwang is set to return in February.

Willy Boly has been ruled out of the Africa Cup of Nations with a calf injury.

And lastly, Rayan Ait-Nouri is set to resume training again soon after missing the games against Brighton and Chelsea. He got injured in the warm-up against the Seagulls.

Blow for Wolves about Hwang Hee-chan

The news about Hwang Hee-chan, 25, is perhaps the most frustrating part of this update from Wolves.

Supporters have been waiting for news about the South Korean.

Although he had not been in great form the last few weeks before his injury, he is still an important players for Wolves and is the club’s top scorer.

The update just says ‘February’, which could well mean he returns later in the month.

Hopefully that will not be the case, with Wolves struggling to score goals.
