Stephen Hunt on target for October Wolves debut


Summer signing Stephen Hunt remains on target to make his long-awaited Wolves debut in October.

The Molineux club signed the Republic of Ireland midfielder from Hull City during the close-season despite Hunt being midway through his recovery from a broken foot.

The 29-year-old has been sidelined since February but manager Mick McCarthy has given an upbeat assessment on his current condition.

"We've got five games coming up and then we get another international break," he told the club's official website.

"If we get him back after that and he was fit to start, that would be fantastic. I think he's still on target to be ready in October."

Meanwhile, Steven Fletcher (foot) and Jelle Van Damme (ankle) – both summer signings – are set to make their own returns from injury against Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday.
