Whatever happens this season for Wolverhampton Wanderers, it is likely that Jody Craddock will look upon the 2005-06 campaign with irritation.
The defender had only just returned after injury and, less than three matches into his latest revival, he limped out of the match against Ipswich Town last Saturday with just 37 minutes played.
Craddock is now unlikely to be fit to face Hull City on Saturday.
"I was back in the team, I had played three games and I was pleased with the way things were going," Craddock said. "But now, I have hurt my medial ligament in my knee. I am just hopeful that I should be back sooner, rather than later.
"I have been unfortunate this season, with little injuries which have kept me out of the team and it is hard then to get consistency in your game. You need to be in the team to build up a run and boost your confidence.
"You just have to remind yourself that it could be worse. You've just got to look at what's happened to Alan Smith [Manchester United player, who broke a leg at the weekend] to see that but, looking from the team's point of view, there are positives to take out of our string of results of late.
"I think we have had a few clean sheets and that's a good thing for all of us, not just the defence. We have been minimising the chances teams get against us and keeping clean sheets helps you to win more games, which is what we need right now."
