Jordan Graham has told Wolverhampton Wanderers' official site that Kortney Hause gave him some crucial advice this season.
Graham was loaned to Oxford United in the early part of the campaign, and Hause made sure to tell his teammate to impress while down in League Two.
Thankfully for the winger, he managed to do just that – and Kenny Jackett handed the 20-year-old his debut against Ipswich Town at the weekend.
And Graham said, after his first appearance: “Players do get their chance at Wolves.
“I live with Kortney and he is another one who went out on loan to Gillingham and came back into the Wolves team.
“He told me to go to Oxford and do what I can and then come back and Oxford and their gaffer Michael Appleton were great to me.
“In football you will always get your chance and the gaffer told me to go out and take mine.”
Graham impressed on his maiden showing for Wolves, but he was not able to inspire his team to victory in the contest.
The Midlands outfit fell behind twice against Ipswich, but they fought back – and scored through James Henry and Adam Le Fondre.
A draw at Portman Road is generally considered a good result, but it has done little for Wolves after their poor start.
Jackett’s men are under pressure to start picking up victories, as they look to close the gap to the play-off spaces, and mount a promotion charge.
