Stearman seeks Wolves recall

Defender Richard Stearman remains hopeful of gaining a first-team recall with Wolverhampton Wanderers before the end of the season.

The 22-year-old has not featured since early February, but is hopeful that a goalscoring performance in a 4-1 reserve team win over West Ham will have given manager Mick McCarthy something to consider.

He told the club's official website:"I feel like the forgotten man at the moment, but it was good to get a runout to keep the fitness up.

"I've felt ready for the first team since I first came out of the side. It's just about biding my time and waiting for my chance and grabbing a goal puts my name out there.

"You'd like to think performances in training and in the reserves will count.

"It's just a case of knuckling down and hopefully the manager will remember what I've done and if I get my chance, then great.

"The lads have done really well and picked up a few points so it's part and parcel of the game.

"I felt I was having a good season up until the Wigan game, then I got sent off and I haven't featured again."
