Joe Mason frustrated with lack of action at Wolverhampton Wanderers so far

Wolverhampton Wanderers signed Joe Mason from Cardiff City in the January transfer window.

Joe Mason has admitted to the Express and Star that he is already frustrated not to have had more chances at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Mason was Wolves' marquee signing in the January transfer window, but he has been used sparingly so far.

The 24-year-old has made just three starts for the Midlands club so far, and he admits that he wants to play more regularly.

“It’s frustrating, obviously I want to start every game like everyone does, hopefully I’ve put something in the manager’s mind and maybe play on Tuesday night which is a big game for us,” Mason said.

“I’m hoping to play up top and Bjorn (Sigurdarson) is doing a good job there at the minute so it’s competition for places.

“When I get my chance I’ve got to try and take it.”

Mason has scored two goals for Wolves over his initial period at the club, but Kenny Jackett seems reluctant to throw the front man in at the deep end.

Bjorn Sigurdarson has been picked ahead of Mason in recent weeks, but the Icelandic international has not really taken his chance.

Sigurdarson has failed to hit the back of the net yet this season, and there is a growing expectation that Mason will get a prolonged run of games before the end of the campaign.

Wolves’ next match comes against Bristol City tomorrow, and Jackett’s side will be looking to bounce back from a defeat against Middlesbrough.
