Wolves winger Michael Kightly has been ruled out for the remainder of the season after suffering a broken metatarsal.
The 23-year-old suffered the foot injury in Tuesday's behind-closed-doors friendly with Shrewsbury in which goals from Kyel Reid (2), Marlon Harewood and George Friend gave Wolves a 4-1 victory.
Explaining his injury, Kightly told www.wolves.co.uk: "I jumped over the goalkeeper and just landed awkwardly when I planted my foot."
He added: "It's the sort of challenge you go in for day-in day-out in training or in a game but obviously it just wasn't my day.
"The toe has got to be pinned and I will have to have an operation. I am absolutely gutted.
"To miss the last six games when we are in the position that we are in is the worst thing that could happen."
Wolves are top of the Coca-Cola Championship and closing in on promotion to the Barclays Premier League, with Kightly having played a key role in their campaign.
