Wolves skipper fighting to face City

Wolves captain Karl Henry is hoping to be fit for Saturday's Barclays Premier League trip to Manchester City.

The combative midfielder has not played for the first team since damaging knee ligaments against Blackpool in November, but came through a friendly with Leicester unscathed.

Henry told the club's official website, "It was great to get just over an hour. The knee feels fine and I just felt a bit leggy having not played for seven weeks, which was always going to happen."

He added: "Most importantly, I'm out of that treatment room now and back in training. I trained for a couple of days last week and will be back with them on Thursday ahead of the weekend.

"Hopefully, I'll be available for the weekend and it's up to the gaffer from there."

Henry could return to a Wolves side on a high following last week's 1-0 victory over Chelsea, which made it four wins from their last seven league games.

And he believes the fighting spirit his team have shown could prove the decisive factor when push comes to shove at the end of the season.

"I can see that bottom three changing time and time again and we've got to make sure we continue to get results," he added.

"I think the fact we have been down there all season puts us in good stead, because we've been ready to battle and it might be the teams who have been just above it who are panicking.

"We've been playing under pressure for the majority of the season and from now on will be no different."
