Wolves suffer Dave Edwards ankle injury blow


McCarthy concerned by injury list

Wolves midfielder Dave Edwards has been ruled out for up to 10 weeks because of ankle ligament damage.

The Welsh international suffered the injury after falling awkwardly during the 1-0 win at Tottenham on Saturday.

Edwards may have to undergo surgery and joins Michael Kightly and Andy Keogh on the sidelines for the Midlands club.

"Losing Dave is another big blow for us. Losing three players so quickly is a problem we could have done without," said Wolves boss Mick McCarthy.

"Dave has always been available. He is very versatile and has done very well this season. He has done everything we have asked."


Midfielder Kightly and striker Keogh also have ankle problems, with the trio each being ruled out for the crucial festive period in Wolves' battle for Premier League survival.

Kightly was injured in the defeat by Birmingham on 29 November and is out until the middle of January.

Keogh, who will have surgery this week after suffering ligament damage in training, faces two months out of action.
