Wolves captain Sam Ricketts believes the club made the right decision in recalling exiled Jamie O'Hara.

The midfielder was one of four key players to be transfer listed upon Kenny Jackett's arrival at the club, while the other three moved onto pastures new there wasn't even a single enquiry for O'Hara.

Boss Jackett ended the midfielder's exile on Saturday when he brought O'Hara back into the squad for the 2-1 win at Bradford.

Ricketts believes that O'Hara has served his punishment and that the player's talent and reformed attitude has earned him a lifeline at Molineux.

"I think enough time has passed, we're pleased he's back involved and he's got undoubted quality," said the skipper.

"He trained with us on Friday and travelled up on Friday night and it was good to have him back. I've spoken to Jamie since the first day he has been in and he's always been fine. He's been around the training ground and there haven't been any problems.

"He's been great around the place all season, although he hasn't been involved and training with us."
