Wolves have received some devastating new as one of their top players has suffered a broken ankle in training. 28-year-old center-back Willy Boly has been ruled out indefinitely after scans showed a fracture in his lower leg.
Wolves physio Phil Hayward gave the following update on the Frenchman’s condition:
“Unfortunately, Willy Boly sustained a serious injury to his left ankle in training earlier today.
“Initial tests show a fracture to his fibula, and he will undergo further imaging over the coming days to determine whether surgery is required or not.
“If surgery is required, that will take place during the next week.”
Willy Boly has started every Premier League game for Wolves this season except for their 2-5 defeat to Chelsea at Molineux. He missed that match due to being sent off against Everton in the previous game after receiving two yellow cards.
Boly also started all 36 games in the league he was available for last season. He missed two matches due to a red card suspension. This is a big hole in the Wolves defense that manager Nuno Espirito Santo will have to fill.
To make matters worse, Wolves could also be without defender Ryan Bennett who injured his groin last weekend against Southampton. He was not in the squad in the Europa League win at Slovan Bratislava on Thursday. That match also saw the return of Frenchman Romain Saiss, who missed the Southampton match with an injury.
Wolves, who like play in a back three, will likely bring in either Jesus Vallejo or Max Kilman to go alongside captain Conor Coady and Romain Saiss. Vallejo has only 2 league appearances this season while Kilman has none and only one Premier League appearance in his career.
Tomorrow’s match is one Newcastle need to get all three points in. Hopefully, they can start scoring some goals against a vulnerable Wolves defense.
