Wolves new boy Kevin Doyle is confident he will be fit for the start of the season.
Doyle underwent a hernia operation earlier this week after picking up the injury in training.
It was feared the Republic of Ireland international could miss the big kick-off against West Ham on 15th August, but Doyle is hopeful he will recover in time.
"After the first couple of days training I felt some soreness which I thought was just linked with coming back for pre-season," Doyle told the club's official website.
"But then the soreness in the other areas went away and it was still there in my groin which suggested there might have been something wrong.
"We carried on for a couple of weeks to see how it went and eventually decided to get it sorted out rather than let it drag along
Nothing serious"Fortunately it was nothing serious, it was just a small hernia operation.
"The doctor is one of the best in the world and has done 11,000 such operations and she said everything went perfectly.
"There were no problems and I should be back in training in ten days time.
"I'm starting recovery already, I'm in every day and doing bits and pieces and should be able to join in fully with the lads in ten days to two weeks.
"That gives me a chance then to maybe get a pre-season game or two under my belt and maybe sneak in for the start of the season.
"That's certainly what I am looking for."
