Lee Evans is set to impress his coach Paul Lambert as he returns from long term injury.

He featured in the FA Cup when Wolves played Stoke City and Liverpool but he would have to work hard to remain relevant.

The youngster started in the 2-1 loss to Burton Albion. The disappointing result was his first start in the league in almost six months. The player acknowledged that he has to live up to expectations at any chance he gets, with the numerous options that abound at Molineux.

“It’s not ideal as there are a lot of players here and the gaffer rotates when he plays us. Over time, you get a chance and you need to try and impress. We’ve got a month where there are a lot of games and a lot of points to play for.

“I feel good – obviously I’d like to be playing every Saturday and building it up but I’m getting the chances now so if I can play a bit better than I did in the second half then hopefully I can keep my place,” the player said.

Evans added that the recent result they have had helped them not get too worried with the loss but that they would need to probe to find out where things went wrong during the game.
Wolves were ahead in the match through a Helder Costa goal. Costa’s penalty was not enough as Burton came back to finish off the game in the closing stages.

“If we would have played like we did in the first half, we would have won the game. In the second half, we didn’t turn up and we got punished,” Evans added.

The Brewers shocked Wolverhampton Wanderers but the club is hoping to turn things around soon, the player added.
