Wolves midfielder Conor Coady names two injured players whose returns will be crucial next season

Kenny Jackett's men finished in mid-table in the Championship.

Conor Coady believes that the returns of injured pair Jordan Graham and Nouha Dicko will have a huge impact on Wolverhampton Wanderers' squad next season, the Express and Star reports.

Both players have spent large parts of the campaign out on the sidelines but the Express and Star suggests that Dicko will be back for pre-season while Graham will return in either September or October.

And Coady has suggested that having the pair back will provide a huge boost to the squad as they look to improve upon their performance from this season.

"I think some of the players coming back will be like new additions," he told the Express and Star.

"You've got Jordan Graham, a massive influence in Nouha Dicko, they're going to be huge for us.

"They're match-winners, they're going to win us games. To get them back is really important for us."

With Kenny Jackett's men collecting just four wins since Graham sustained his injury against Cardiff in January, it is safe to say that losing the winger was a key reason why the team were unable to mount a promotion challenge during the latter stages of the campaign.

The winger's tally of five assists made him Wolves' second most productive player in that department, and his ability with the ball often meant that full-backs were in for a torrid time trying to keep him quiet.

Meanwhile, Dicko's absence had a much greater impact on the side's season as he was missing since August. Though he had failed to score in the Championship before his injury, his form from last season suggested that he would have been a key man for a side that finished as one of the lower scorers in the division.
