Kightly cautious on return date

Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Michael Kightly has confirmed that he faces a race against time to try and be fit for action at the start of next season.
The 24-year-old missed most of Wolves' first season back in the Premier League due to injuries and he is currently fighting back from tendon problems in both of his knees.
He told the Express & Star: "I don't want to set too many targets. I'd like to be back at some stage of pre-season, but it won't be the start of it.
"I'm feeling a lot more positive now and looking forward to cracking on with pre-season. I'd hope to play some part of a game in pre-season.
"But this injury is quite intense and something you can't rush back from. I've been out too long now to rush back and suffer a setback. To go back straight into that would put me back.
"Hopefully I can play some part of a pre-season friendly.
"The rehab has been going well and the specialists are really happy. I had another injection a few weeks ago and had to rest it for a couple of weeks.
"Other than that, I've been working hard with the physios and have progressed massively."
