Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Kenny Jackett assesses Rajiv Van La Parra's and Michal Zyro's performances against Fulham

Wolves Steve Bull Stand

Wolverhampton Wanderers beat Fulham 3-2 yesterday evening.

Kenny Jackett has praised the performance of Michal Zyro on his home debut for Wolverhampton Wanderers on the club’s official site.

Zyro scored twice in Wolves’ 3-2 win over Fulham last night, and he highlighted all the qualities that he will bring to the Molineux-based outfit.

The Polish international showed a clinical finish, and also worked hard for the team, as they recorded their fourth successive victory.

And Jackett said: “Michal has a lot of technical ability and physical attributes which can do very well in the English game.

“That was proved both at West Ham and tonight, and he has had a good start.

“I said when he arrived I think he could play in any of the front positions and I still feel that.

“Wherever he plays he is an asset and he took his goals very well and just before half time he could have had a hat trick.”

Zyro had big boots to fill in his first Championship appearance for Wolves, after the departure of Benik Afobe to Bournemouth.

Afobe was Wolves’ top scorer this season, but his departure has created an opportunity for other members of the squad.

One of the players to benefit from Afobe’s switch to the Cherries was Rajiv van la Parra, after he came back into Jackett’s line up to face Fulham yesterday.

The 24-year-old has been on loan at Brighton & Hove Albion recently, but he started alongside Zyro last night, and Jackett was pleased with his contribution.

"Van La Parra was very good tonight and put in a lot of effort and workrate," Jackett added. 

“He deserved a goal for his performance and was unlucky when his shot came back off the post.

“He got a very warm round of applause when he left the field and the two of them did very well.”

Wolves’ win over Fulham has lifted them up to 10th in the Championship table.
