Jack Price: Faces a spell on the sidelines

Price was forced off at half-time in the top of the table showdown at Molineux which finished in a 1-1 draw and will now spend up to four weeks on the sidelines.

The 20-year-old Academy graduate was making his seventh League One start of an impressive breakthrough season.

"Jack has a knee ligament injury and will be out for three to four weeks," head coach Kenny Jackett told the club's official website.

"It's a real blow because we'll miss him.

"He's a good player - he's a terrific passer, he can pass forwards and sometimes you can miss what he does because he plays one-touch and passes forwards all the time.

"He's terrific at picking up second balls and just generally as a person he has a good morale about him that rubs off on others.

"This is his debut season in first-team football but he's had some very good games and I think he has a good future ahead of him at the club."

Jackett added: "We've got other midfielders - Dave Edwards, Lee Evans and David Davis - so it's not a position we're short on."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.
