Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Keith Lowe has returned to training with his club today having completed a month's loan at Cheltenham Town.

The 21-year-old featured in seven games for John Ward's men, including Friday's 1-0 win at Yeovil, and is now anxious to force his way into Mick McCarthy's plans.

"Cheltenham had a few injury problems which meant I went straight into the team," he said. "I missed a lot of pre-season so it was great to get my match fitness up.

"John said he would have liked me to stay longer if the budget would have allowed it but now I'm back the aim is to keep improving as much as I can.

"I hope to play in a practise match soon so that I get the chance to catch the gaffer's eye."

And Walsall goalkeeper Bertrand Bossu has warned first-choice Clayton Ince he faces a struggle to regain his starting position.

The 25-year-old Bossu has so far made one appearance for the Bescot club, as replacement for Ince who is sidelined by a thigh injury and the Frenchman said Ince should expect a battle to reclaim his place at the top of the pecking order.
