Miller closes in on return
Kenny Miller
Miller has been sorely missed

Wolves striker Kenny Miller is close to a return to action following a double hernia operation.

Miller, Wolves' top scorer last season, has not played since the play-off final triumph against Sheffield United in May.

But the Scotland international has returned to full training and could feature against Bolton on 27 September.

Manager Dave Jones said: "Kenny has been able to do quite a lot of work to maintain his fitness levels, despite the pain he has been feeling.

"If all goes according to plan, he could possibly be included in the squad for our game against Bolton on Saturday week."

Miller's return cannot come soon enough for Wolves, who have scored just one Premiership goal so far this season.

"It's been a long and frustrating wait but I'm feeling good now and I'm really looking forward to coming back," he told the club's website.

But Wolves have been dealt a blow with news that their England Under-21 goalkeeper Matt Murray has suffered a recurrence of the back injury that has sidelined him since the opening day of the season.

Murray was close to a first-team return but is now unlikely to figure in Saturday's game against Chelsea at Molineux.
