Wolves recall striker

Published Add your comment

Chris Iwelumo has left Bristol City and returned to parent club Wolves following the end of his loan spell at Ashton Gate.

Robins boss Gary Johnson had hoped to keep extend the 31-year-old's stay at the club but after talks with counterpart Mick McCarthy, the front man will make his way back to Molineux to try and force his way into the starting 11 with the Premier League side.

Johnson told the club's official website: "We thank Chris for his time with us. There were a few factors. I had a chat with Mick (McCarthy) and I think a lot of it was down to the player."

Johnson added: "Chris worked so hard getting to the Premier League and I think he wants to be there for the final weeks of the season. He wants to be with his family and try and see if he can win a place in the first team at the top level."

Iwelumo scored twice for City in seven appearances during his month long stint and made his last appearance in Saturday's 2-0 defeat to Reading.

Meanwhile, Nicky Maynard has been awarded the Goal of the Year accolade at the Football League Awards for his strike - a spectacular scissor-kick into the top corner - in the 2-1 defeat at QPR on Boxing Day.
