Zubar eyes Wolves return

The 26-year-old has not played for the club since February after

first undergoing back surgery and then suffering a groin injury

during his rehabilitation. The Frenchman has played in two reserve

games in recent weeks and is also set to play for Wolves’ second

string against Aston Villa at Molineux on Tuesday. Zubar is hoping

that will be enough to prove to manager Mick McCarthy that he is

ready for a first-team return. “My season starts now. I want to do

what I can to help the team because the injury hasn’t helped

anyone,” Zubar told the club’s official website. “I want to try and

be involved for the rest of the season and be injury free. I’m just

looking forward to trying to play a part. “It’s been a frustrating

time coming back from a bad injury and then picking up a groin

injury.” Sylvan Ebanks-Blake and Jody Craddock will also continue

their comebacks from injury against Villa on Tuesday. Ebanks-Blake

has not played since August due to a knee injury while Craddock has

missed the last month with hamstring and groin problems.
