Wolves' injured striker Kevin Doyle is hoping to feature in Republic of Ireland's end of season internationals.
The 27-year-old is expected to miss much of the remainder of Wolves' campaign after damaging his knee on international duty last month.
The ex-Reading marksman fears he could upset Wolves by turning out for his country this summer after missing crucial club games through injury.
However, he aims to feature in Ireland's Carling Nations Cup games against Northern Ireland and Scotland ahead of their Euro 2012 qualifier against Macedonia on 4th June.
"If I don't play for Wolves again this season, I don't suppose the manager will be too happy to see me get fit and disappear for my country," he told Sky Sports News.
"But I'm going to try to make it."
Wolves failed to find the back of the net in their weekend drubbing to Everton, but fit-again winger Michael Kightly believes they have the squad to cope.
"It is a blow to lose Kevin but we've got other good players at the club that can come in and do good jobs," said the winger.
"None of the boys are thinking 'we've lost Kevin, we are not going to win a game'.
"As good a player as he is, we feel we can adapt to that and we need to step up to the plate and do that now."
