Wolverhampton Wanderers to wait on Bakary Sako

28 October 2014

Wolves' Bakary Sako will be given until the last minute to prove his fitness for the visit of Birmingham City this weekend.

Sako missed Saturday's 2-1 win at Leeds United with a groin injury sustained during the 2-0 victory over Middlesbrough the previous week.

The seven-goal forward has helped fire Wolves to third in the table, with manager Kenny Jackett hopeful Sako will be fit for their derby showdown.

"We will give him until Thursday, possibly Friday," he told the club's official site. "I had been fairly confident he would be fit for Leeds but he didn't quite make it."

James Henry will again deputise should Sako fail to recover, while Leon Clarke is also pushing to start after netting the winner at Elland Road.
