George Saville on his 'tough' year at Wolverhampton Wanderers

Molineux - Wolves - Billy Wright Stand

George Saville has played seven matches for Wolverhampton Wanderers in 2016.

George Saville has admitted to BBC Sport that the last year at Wolverhampton Wanderers has been very tough.

Saville was sent out on loan to both Bristol City and Millwall back in 2015, and the central midfielder’s chances back at Molineux were very limited.

However, the former Chelsea man seems to have had a resurgence at Wolves recently.

Saville scored twice for Wolves, as they beat Derby County 2-1 in Championship action last Saturday, and the central midfielder is looking to kick on now.

"It's been a tough year going out on loan twice and thinking you're not good enough to get into the team, but you have to be mentally strong," Saville said. 

"You have to block a few things out. You've got to stay strong, keep working hard and anything can happen. I've played a few games now and hopefully showed the supporters what I'm capable of.”

Wolves are now in 13th place in the Championship table, and their victory over Derby was their first for seven matches.

Jackett’s side have been in poor form, and it is arguably due to their struggles for victory that Saville has got an opportunity.

Jackett has constantly tinkered with his side, as he has looked to find the winning formula this season.

Saville has certainly benefited from this rotation, and he has now made seven appearances for Wolves since the turn of the year.

Wolves have performed far below expectations so far, and they seem destined to finish in mid-table, as inconsistency has plagued their campaign.
