Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Kevin Doyle faces up to eight weeks on the sidelines with the medial knee ligament injury that he sustained during the Republic of Ireland’s 2-1 win over Macedonia on Saturday.

Doyle is Wolves top scorer this season with eight goals, and has been excellent in their recent run of good form, as they look to save themselves from the drop this season.

Rehabilitation times for the injury sustained by Doyle can vary, and the striker will be hopeful of featuring again this season after beginning his treatment program at Wolves training ground this morning.

“The scan has confirmed that Kevin has torn his MCL (Medial Collateral Ligament),” Stev Kemp, Head of Wolves Medical Department, told the clubs official website.

“We will be working with Kevin to get him back as quickly as the injury allows but the likely timespan is anywhere between four and eight weeks.”

With Wolves having reverted to a 4-5-1 formation in the last two months, Doyle is likely to be replaced by Sylvan Ebanks-Blake for the trip to Newcastle United on Saturday.
