    Drogba to return for Chelsea


    by ODN


    Didier Drogba looks set to return to lead the Chelsea attack against struggling Wolves on Saturday, but Frank Lampard will have to wait a bit longer for his comeback - much to the frustration of the England midfielder.

    Ivory Coast international Drogba has missed the Blues' last two matches because of a virus but has now resumed full training ahead of the visit of Mick McCarthy's side, third bottom of the Barclays Premier League.

    Lampard, though, is expected to need more recovery time following his hernia operation which has seen the 32-year-old out of action since August 28.

    Centre-back Alex also will not yet return to the first-team fold as he recovers from a thigh problem.

    Fellow Brazilian Ramires missed the midweek Champions League victory over Spartak Moscow because of an ankle injury, but should be back in contention this weekend.
