Michael Jacobs concedes that he faces a battle to break into the Wolverhampton Wanderers team.

New Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Michael Jacobs has admitted that he has a lot of work to do to force his way into the starting lineup at Molineux.

The 22-year-old, who joined the League One outfit from Derby County yesterday on a loan basis, plays in the same position as both James Henry and Bakary Sako.

"The boys are flying so I'm going to have to work very hard to show what I can do even to get a chance," the Express & Star quotes Jacobs as saying.

"Both wide players are also doing very well, creating and scoring goals and winning so it's up to me to show the gaffer what I can do in training."

Under the terms of the deal, Wolves can sign Jacobs on a permanent basis during the January transfer window.
