On the latest episode of the E&S Wolves podcast, Joe Edwards has been discussing injury news as Wolves head into the international break 

One player which has now been sitting out for a number of months now is Raul Jimenez who is in the process of recovery after his horrific fractured skull suffered away to Arsenal back in November.

The Mexican has since been seen attending Wolves home games, and looked on as teammate Rui Patricio suffered a head injury on Monday night in their 1-0 defeat to Liverpool.

Discussing a potential return date for Jimenez, Edwards had some positive news to say on the Mexican ahead of their next game against on 5th April.

He said: “In terms of West Ham, I think that’ll probably be a little bit too soon again, but I’ll be happy to be proved wrong.

“And ultimately, I think all of Wolves’ players that are on the injury table – I’d perhaps throw Marcal into that as well even though he’s a bit more of an unknown – that we should see them again towards the end of the season.¬†

“I don’t think any of them are ruled out for the rest of the season. So they’ll look to play a part in the final few games at least and just have a [few] more minutes at the end of the season.”

Should Wolves keep Fabio Silva?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Jimenez had only made 10 appearances for Wolves in this season before his head injury had him sidelined, however, he had netted three times in those games (via Transfermarkt).

TIF Thoughts on Edwards’ comments…

Wolves fans will certainly be happy to hear they can expect to see the Mexican play again before the end of the season. Last season, in particular, Jimenez was so important for the success of the team in terms of goalscoring. In his absence, their two out-and-out strikers have only managed to score two goals – Fabio Silva with them both.

Wolves have struggled this season in comparison to last and when you take away the 17 goals the Mexican scored last season, it is clear to understand why.
