Sako has been absent from the side for more than a month due to a hamstring tear which was first thought to rule the winger out for the rest of the season.

But defeat at Charlton last weekend returned Dean Saunders' men to the bottom three, and the Molineux boss is preparing himself for a final throw of the dice to see if his side can capture an invaluable three points.

Saunders told the Birmingham Mail: "We are obviously rushing him back.

"Is it a risk? Yes. We've got no choice. We are short of goalscorers, somebody who can score out of nothing.

"If he smacks one in it might be just what we need. He'll be in the squad on Saturday."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
