Adam Le Fondre enjoying partnership with Benik Afobe at Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolves Stadium

Wolverhampton Wanderers signed Adam Le Fondre on loan from Cardiff City during the summer transfer window.

Adam Le Fondre has told Wolverhampton Wanderers’ official website that he is enjoying linking up with Benik Afobe at Molineux.

Le Fondre has had limited chances at Wolves of late, with most of his appearances coming as a late substitute.

Kenny Jackett has deployed a formation which involves just one striker, but Le Fondre feels that his partnership with Afobe has worked well when given a chance.

“We have got players in the squad who can create chances and score goals and Benik was the leading scorer in the country last season,” he said.

“I think when I have linked up with Benik it has worked well and I have been behind a few of his goals.”

Le Fondre was behind Afobe’s goal for Wolves in their most recent match against Ipswich Town last weekend.

The striker crossed for Afobe to head home, as Wolves rescued a point in a 2-2 draw at Portman Road.

Despite their comeback, the draw has done little for Wolves this season, as they are so desperate for victories.

Jackett’s men were tipped as promotion candidates before the campaign started, but they have failed to live up to those standards, and are some way behind the top-six.

Wolves already have an eight-point gap to make up on the play-off places, with their next match coming against Milton Keynes Dons at the weekend.
