Wolves wait on duo's fitness

20 November 2009 01:25
Wolves boss Mick McCarthy will give late fitness tests to Kevin Doyle and Ronald Zubar before deciding whether they are fit enough to face Chelsea on Saturday. Republic of Ireland striker Doyle returned to training on Friday suffering from the effects of a two-legged World Cup play-off against France which went to extra-time on Wednesday before ending in disappointment. Meanwhile, Zubar picked up a thigh strain during training on Thursday and is a doubt for the visit of the league leaders. "We'll see what the situation is with Kevin," McCarthy told the club's official website. "He had a long old game on Wednesday night and he played well too. "It was a tough game and a tough ending which will have been hard and will have an effect on all the players. "They won't have slept very much on Wednesday night because they'll have been chewing on it - probably the same last night and tonight as well thinking about what might have been because they deserved it over the two games. "So we'll have to look at Kevin physically because he played for 120 minutes on Wednesday night and finished at 11pm."
