Henry bemoans Kightly absence

Published Add your comment

Wolves captain Karl Henry has admitted it is "a massive blow" to lose Michael Kightly for the remainder of the season.

The England under-21 winger, who has been one of the star players for the league leaders this season, will play no part in the club's remaining six games having broken his metatarsal during a friendly against Shrewsbury on Tuesday.

Henry told the club's official website: "It's really disappointing and everyone is gutted for Kights. I'm feeling for him right now because he so wanted to finish the season."

He added: "We've got such an important run-in and he's such an important player for us that it's a massive blow. It is gutting, especially after you've worked hard all season."

But Henry, 26, also believes it will spur Wolves on even more to reward Kightly's efforts with top-flight football on his return.

He added: "It's down to us now to make sure that the next time he does play it's with us in the Premier League."
