Wolverhampton Wanderers Kenny Jackett admits that Bright Enobakhare has had an unusual season

Bright Enobakhare has played seven times for Wolverhampton Wanderers' first-team this season.

Kenny Jackett has admitted in the Express and Star that Bright Enobakhare has had an unusual season at Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Enobakhare is considered to be one of Wolves’ brightest prospects, and he has made seven appearances in all competitions.

Jackett believes it is rare for an 18-year-old to already be making an impact in the first-team, and the former Millwall boss has predicted that the youngster has a very bright future.

“Bright, despite being a youth-team player, got into good areas,” Jackett said.

“I think he’s capable of going one better, as he gets stronger, to go past people and make a difference.

“He has the ability to do that and does it in training.

“This season he’s had seven appearances in the first team – it’s good, and unusual, for an under-18.

“Hopefully he can build on that and keep improving and go on and fulfil the potential we all feel he has.

“He doesn’t look out of place in the Championship. He’s got the power and the football intelligence.”

Enobakhare’s most recent performance came last weekend, when he was introduced as a late substitute against Blackburn Rovers.

The forward was handed just under half an hour, and although he was not able to hit the back of the net, Jackett was still impressed by his display.

“I think he did well and showed a footballing intelligence to move and receive the ball in good areas,” the Wolves boss added.

“It’ll be interesting to see how he develops off that back of that cameo appearance.”

Enobakhare could be in line to receive further opportunities in the senior squad before the end of the season.

Wolves have little left to play for this campaign, meaning Jackett may take the chance to use some of his brighter prospects in a relatively unpressurised environment.
