Kightly delight

Kightly delight

The result against Spurs might not have been what Michael Kightly was hoping for, but looking at the bigger picture, it was a good day for Kights.

Kightly was named in the starting eleven and played 75 minutes before being subbed off.

It was only his fifth league start in over two years and he hopes he can finally kick on and really get his career in the Premier League going.

'I was pleased to get a start, I was cramping up towards the end but I've not had a Premier League start for a long time and the more I can play the fitter I will become and be able to last longer on the pitch.' Kightly told Wolves Official Website.

He continued: 'I felt good and sharp and, touch wood, I've had no problems with my knees since last season which is really pleasing.

'Hopefully Saturday will prove to be a stepping stone for me to build on and try and get a few more games under my belt and really push on.'

Vital Wolves Comment: I think it's fair to say that we all have our fingers crossed that Kights can finally put his injury worries behind him and get a decent run of games.

Good to see him back, lets just hope that he can stay injury free from now on! He will be like a new signing again. And who nows if he can produce his best again!

I, too, was pleased to see Kightly trot out on Saturday. He showed some nice touches but, as I noted in my report, I thought he was a little rusty. With more PL match time he will improve his speed of thought and reaction and refine the execution of the essential skills. Even so, he was not alone in spoiling fine approach work with a poor end result.

Thats good to hear SB, With Jarvis struggling, this is his chance to get back into the fold and get some game time behind him.
