Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Mick McCarthy has hailed the form of goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey in the opening months of the new Premier League season. The 22-year-old Wales international has been beaten 22 times in 12 league games, but McCarthy has been highly impressed by the young gloveman. He told the club's official website: "Wayne Hennessey has been brilliant, he's 22 and a fabulous goalkeeper. "He's maturing into a really top-class goalkeeper, he's absolutely top-drawer. I just think he's had a stunning season so far." Meanwhile, McCarthy has confirmed that another Molineux keeper, Matt Murray, is still some way from a return to action. The 28-year-old is battling back from yet another serious knee injury, but was forced off after just over 20 minutes of a reserve team clash with Birmingham City. McCarthy added: "Matt is looking to get back after his first reserve game in a year. "He might come back, but it will be at least six weeks if it goes okay. That takes us to Christmas. "We're delighted to have him back, but let's get him back in baby steps - we're not pushing him."
