Elokobi boost for Wolves

28 April 2011 10:30
Wolves full-back George Elokobi is expected to be fit for the crucial derby clash with West Brom at Molineux on May 8. Elokobi has missed the last two matches with a hamstring injury but is set to resume full training next week with a view to facing Roy Hodgson's side. Wolves boss Mick McCarthy confirmed: "George will be back in full training next week so he'll be ready for West Brom." McCarthy is also hoping striker Sylvan Ebanks-Blake will be available to face Birmingham at St Andrew's on Sunday. Ebanks-Blake's hamstring problem was not risked during the midweek defeat at Stoke for fear of ruling him out for the season. McCarthy said: "We`ve had to take care of Sylvan because what we don't want is for him to pull it or tear it and then not be involved in any of the remaining games. That is why we didn't take the risk against Stoke."
