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."

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.
