Young winger Jacobs thriving at Wolverhampton Wanderers

Molineux - Wolves - Billy Wright Stand

Since joining Wolves, Michael Jacobs has taken his opportunities and become a key part of Kenny Jackett's team.

After signing with Derby in 2012, Michael Jacobs was never really given a chance to show what he could do for the Rams – much to the fans' disappointment. He found it difficult to dislodge Jamie Ward and Paul Coutts from the flanks, and competition for places became much more fierce in those positions this season at the iPro. 

Wolves took him on loan in November, and after nine successful appearances made the deal permanent. Jacobs has since gone on to be named League One's player of the month for February, after a scintillating set of performances. 

Jacobs has scored five times in a run that has seen Wolves win nine on the trot, whilst conceding just two goals and scoring 25.

The third tier of English football is not the place fans of Wolverhampton Wanderers want their club to be, but they can be delighted with the job Kenny Jackett has done since taking over last May. 

After back-to-back relegations, it must be pleasing for the crowd at Molineux to be watching good possession football again.

Jackett has done well to get the high-earners out on loan, but if promotion is won this season there will be plenty more hard work to come in the summer. 

Wolves have a hectic month ahead, but their fans and players will be feeling confident about the future.

Jacobs said after winning his award last month: "I'm really enjoying my football, but the season will only be a successful one if we win promotion." Sentiments I'm sure the Wolverhampton faithful will agree with. 

Do you think Wolves will rejoin the Championship next season?
