Jermaine Pennant: Endured a frustrating time at Wolves

Pennant is due back at the Britannia Stadium this week when a forgettable loan deal at Wolves comes to an end.

The winger has failed to impress at Molineux, with Wolves' struggles in the Championship doing him few favours.

A spell away from Stoke was intended to help him rediscover his form and push for a permanent switch elsewhere, but he heads back to his parent club in a similar situation to when he left.

The Potters have, however, made it clear that he will not be frozen out of the first-team picture, with it possible that Pennant could figure in Saturday's Premier League clash with Chelsea.

Assistant manager Dave Kemp said: "It hasn't been the easiest of times because results haven't been great, so it doesn't sound as though he was a roaring success (at Wolves).

"I don't think he played as much as he would have liked. But he comes back a Stoke player and we take things from there."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
