Jones targets Wolves return

Wolves midfielder David Jones has set his sights on breaking into the first-team picture following his first appearance in two months.

The 25-year-old was a second-half substitute during Tuesday's 3-0 defeat at Manchester United as he marked his comeback from knee surgery with an appearance against his former club.

Jones picked up his injury during a Carling Cup third round defeat at Old Trafford in September.

"Since I've got back into training I've been eager to get back out playing – it's been a long time," he told the club's official website.

"It's strange how it works out that my last game was at Manchester United and then I'm back there again but I was just delighted to be involved.

"I managed to get on for a few minutes and get a few touches and I just tried to be involved as much as I could.

"It's always important to try and get your passing range back because when you haven't played for a while it's all about getting back used to the different spaces on the pitch.

"It was nice to get back on the ball again and try a few things and hopefully it's a taster for some more action in the near future.

"It's a case of one step at a time and just training well now and seeing what happens in the games coming up.

"Hopefully I have shown the manager that I am fit again and available for selection."
