Wolves today received a rare injury boost with confirmation of Player of the Year Wayne Hennessey’s return to full fitness ahead of schedule.
The Wales international will return to contention immediately following the international break after battling back from a ruptured cruciate ligament suffered at Sunderland on April 14.
Shrewsbury-based Hennessey, 25, will be stepping up his workload and returning to full training with a view to challenging Carl Ikeme and Dorus De Vries for the away game at Huddersfield on October 20.
“Wayne should be fully fit and ready to rejoin full training with the team when the international break has finished, provided he has no setbacks,” said Solbakken.
“He’s doing all his work with (goalkeeping coach) Pat Mountain at the moment, but everything is going the way it should be and if that’s still the case he’ll be back with us when the international break is over.
“He’s worked hard and got his reward by being back a few weeks ahead of schedule.
“It’s a good thing to have all three keepers fit but it’s also a reward for Wayne too because every day I’ve been here he’s always come in with a big smile and worked hard.”
