Wolves are set to be without influential midfielder Jamie O'Hara for at least a month of the season.
The 25-year-old, who signed from Tottenham in the summer, has missed the last two Wolves matches because of injury.
And the club revealed he has undergone surgery on a double hernia in an attempt to get himself back to full fitness.
"Jamie has been complaining of some groin pain for the last couple of months," said a Wolves spokesman.
"We hope he will be back in training within four to six weeks"

"We were able to manage it with treatment and he was able to play but it got to a stage where a specialist decided that surgery would be needed.
"The decision was taken to get Jamie at 100 per cent rather than continue to try and manage him through it.
"We hope he will be back in training within four-to-six weeks."
Wolves face a tricky run with visits to Arsenal, Bolton and Tottenham, and home matches against Chelsea and Aston Villa in the next month.
