Milijas targets starting spot

Serbian midfielder Nenad Milijas is hoping for a run in the Wolverhampton Wanderers first-team after some impressive displays as a substitute.

The 26-year-old had a hand in both Wolves goals in the 2-2 weekend draw at Stoke City, having not started a game for the Molineux club since mid-September.

Milijas told the Express & Star:"I always felt I was ready, but the gaffer decides who plays. I understand that and realise I'm not going to play every game.

"The Premier League was very hard maybe for me at the beginning.

"I played the first few games and felt I did well, but after that, my performances dipped a bit and the gaffer took me out of the team.

"But I'm here for the team and I want to do all I can to help Wolves stay in the Premier League."

To date Milijas has yet to score in eight appearances for Wolves since his summer arrival from Crvena Zvezda Belgrade.
