Jay Bohroyd is hoping that his match winning performance against Hull on Monday has given manager Mick McCarthy a headache.

Drafted in at the expense of Stephen Ward who in McCarthy’s words has ‘plateaued’ in recent weeks, Bothroyd found the net twice and formed a useful partnership with Andy Keogh that could see him keep Ward out of the picture for the remains of the season.

‘Hopefully getting the goals gives the manager a decision next week.’ he told The Birmingham post.

Goals is the one thing Wolves have been woefully short of this season. The current list of highest scorers is topped by a midfielder on 8, and includes another, and a defender.

That Bothroyd can score has never been in doubt. That he can motivate himself to do it every week however has.

Which may now just work in Wolves favor. With four games to go, everyone is a semi-final, and those are just the ones that Bothroyd loves the most.

‘I like big games,’ He said, ‘I think every footballer does, they are the games you really want to play in.’

A fit, focussed and passionate Bothroyd could hold the key to Wolves promotion aspirations as Mick McCarthy’s men steel themselves to achieve what only one other Wolves side has managed.

A place in The Premiership.
