Wolves defender Max Kilman has taken to Instagram to announce that he will miss the remainder of the season.

The centre-back has impressed this term but his season is set to be cut short as he confirmed the news first reported by the Express and Star.

He suffered an ankle injury in training and after not being involved in either of the defeats to Burnley or Brighton, the 24-year-old will take no further part for the Wanderers this term. 

His absence has already been felt with the side shipping three goals last weekend at home to the Seagulls.

Have Wolves improved under Lage?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Kilman has been integral to Wolves’ strong defensive record this season with only the league’s top three Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea conceding fewer league goals than their 32 in the Premier League but they will have to find an able deputy.

Alongside a compilation of his season highlights, the £14.4m-rated colossus said:

‘Gutted to miss the rest of the season. Nevertheless, Time to recover and support the boys.’

TIF Thoughts on Kilman and Wolves….

With only captain Conor Coady and goalkeeper Jose Sa making more appearances in the league, the loss of Kilman in the heart of that defence will be a tremendous blow for Bruno Lage’s side.

Do you remember who Wolves signed Ivan Cavaleiro from?

The Midlands club have still to face each of the top three in their run-in and will do well to improve on their current position of eighth with a seventh-place finish offering a route into the Europa Conference League. 

They are three points off West Ham with a game in hand but the loss of one of their most important players could thwart their quest for Europe and with seven defeats in their last ten games, including the last three, it couldn’t have come at a worse time.
