Karl Henry: Set to sit out crucial fixtures in Wolves' survival bid
Wolves' survival bid has been dealt an untimely blow with the news that Karl Henry is to be sidelined for between three and four weeks.
The midfielder picked up a hamstring injury during Saturday's 5-0 defeat to Fulham at Craven Cottage.
He was sent for scans on Monday and the results of those tests have revealed that a period of rest will be required.
Henry will now be forced to sit out crucial fixtures in Wolves' efforts to preserve their Premier League status, with it expected that he will be missing until the club go to Norwich on 24th March.
In order to cover his loss, and with Dave Edwards having only returned to the fold on Tuesday following a knock of his own, Wolves have decided to recall David Davis from a loan spell at League One outfit Chesterfield.
"Karl has had the scan which has shown up a hamstring strain, and he is expected to be out for three to four weeks," boss Terry Connor told the club's official website.
"As a result of his injury, and also Dave Edwards being unavailable at Fulham, we have decided to recall David Davis from his loan spell at Chesterfield.
"It gives us another option given the injuries and we've had David watched closely at both Inverness and Chesterfield this season, where he has done very well."
