Wolves: Nathan Judah shares Jonny injury claim after cup victory

|

Wolves full-back Jonny Otto came off with an injury issue on Wednesday night, but it is not expected to be too serious. 

This is according to Wolves correspondent Nathan Judah, who has been speaking on the Express & Star YouTube channel following the Old Gold’s Carabao Cup victory.

Steve Davis guided his side to the fourth round of the cup with a narrow 1-0 victory over Premier League rivals Leeds United courtesy of Boubacar Traore’s goal.

However, Jonny was forced off in the latter stages of the game at Molineux with a suspected injury, which saw Dexter Lembikisa replace the 28-year-old.

But Judah has hinted the injury may not be too serious as the Spaniard did not go straight down the tunnel following his withdrawal and watched the remainder of the game from the bench.

He said: “Jonny didn’t have the best of nights, did he, and came off injured, looked like he was holding the back of his knee or bottom of his hamstring.

“He came off, he sat on the bench. Didn’t look, when he’s going off, that it looked too serious – probably a bit of a niggle, so I think the worst fears will be allayed.”

TIF Thoughts on Judah’s comments…

We are sure Wolves fans will be hoping this is the case given that Jonny has played a fairly prominent role in the Wolves squad during the 2022/23 campaign so far.

Is Jonny good enough for Wolves?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The 28-year-old has already racked up 981 minutes of Premier League action across his 12 appearances in the English top flight (via Transfermarkt).

And with Wolves’ new manager set to start his role with the club in the coming days, Jonny will certainly be hoping it is nothing serious as he looks to impress his new boss.
