Adam Le Fondre wants more first team chances at Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolves Stadium

Adam Le Fondre has spent a lot of time on Wolverhampton Wanderers' bench in recent times.

Adam Le Fondre has admitted to Wolverhampton Wanderers’ official site that he wants to play more regularly at Molineux.

Le Fondre has struggled for starts at Wolves recently, with most his appearances coming as a late substitute.

And the 28-year-old forward admits that he is determined to force his way into Kenny Jackett’s starting line-up, as he is desperate to play a more prominent role.

“Any player wants to be involved and I have had limited minutes recently,” he said. “I have come here wanting to play and the gaffer knows that and the attitude I have shown in training and in taking my chances backs that up.

“I want to play games and I want to score goals but ultimately the main thing that is important is for the team to be doing well and be as far up the league as possible, fighting for promotion.”

Le Fondre has lost out on regular starts as Jackett has switched to a formation which only involves one striker due to Wolves’ poor start to the season.

The Midlands club are languishing in mid-table, and they struggled to keep goals out in the early part of the season.

As a result, Jackett wanted to make Wolves a more solid outfit, and he packed the midfield – leaving just one striking place up for grabs.

With Benik Afobe established as Wolves’ main goalscorer, Le Fondre has dropped to the bench, but his impact against Ipswich Town shows that he still has a part to play.

The Cardiff City loanee entered the field late on at Portman Road, but he helped Wolves rescue a point from the contest, and he will hope that his showing impressed Jackett enough to put him back into the side’s starting line-up.

Wolves’ next match comes against Milton Keynes Dons on Saturday.
