Kightly edging closer to a return

07 Jul 2010 - 16:42:10

Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Mick McCarthy is hopeful winger Michael Kightly will be able to take part in the club's pre-season tour of Ireland.

The 24-year-old has had to endure a wretched couple of years through injury, but he has upped his training regime ahead of their friendly with Bohemians on July 17.

Kightly, who joined the Midlanders from Grays Athletic for just £20,000 back in 2007, broke his foot in March of last year.

He returned but soon required ankle surgery before a patella problem ensured he missed the latter half of last term.

McCarthy will be hoping to put him through his paces alongside defender Stephen Ward, who had surgery on a cartilage problem at the end of the season.

Speaking to reporters, he said: "Michael is training on the 'AlterG' (anti gravity treadmill). He's doing his programme and that won't be altered.

"He'll have two weeks (intensive rehabilitation work) before joining us and it's the same with Stephen Ward. They'll be coming with us to Ireland. We're taking everyone."
