Defender Scott Golbourne today declared he’s been put on goals alert in Wolves’ promotion push.
The £700,000 signing from Barnsley has showed a keenness to get forward since forging his way into the team at left-back.
He marked his home league debut with a freak opener in the 3-2 win against Swindon.
Golbourne, 25, has also supplied numerous crosses in his five games so far, with Bjorn Sigurdarson heading one of them against the post in Saturday.
“The gaffer does want his full-backs to join in the attack and sometimes with the way we play the full backs are the main width in the team and are encouraged to get high up the pitch.
“You can be quite a force in the attack as well as having your defensive duties.
“It’s good to get the opportunity to attack and get forward and put in crosses.
“So hopefully there might be one or two more goals during the course of the season.”
Of his goal – only the eighth in 255 career games - the former Bristol City and Reading man admitted: “It was a cross. Or maybe a cross-come-shot!
“It can happen sometimes when you put in a far post cross that they do fly in.”
Having spent the last 18 months in south Yorkshire, Golbourne is well aware of Sheffield United, even if their paths haven’t crossed in that time with Barnsley having remained in the Championship.
The Blades have lost five league games in a row to sit third from bottom of League.
But Golbourne warned Wolves can’t show any complacency.
“Sheffield United will be keen to get themselves up and running and they’re a club with high expectations who will be looking to get out of this league,” he said.
“They’ll want to start putting in performances and picking up good results to climb the table.
“We’ll be looking for the points to get another little run together.
“It will be a good game of football.”
And with another 20,000-plus gate expected, he urged the fans to show their support again.
“The fans have been great,” said Golbourne. “It helps massively, especially at home, to make Molineux a loud and intimidating place to come.
“When the crowd are right behind Wolves, it’s tough for opposition teams to play at Molineux - I’ve been on the other side of it when I’ve been here before.
“When the crowd come alive, it’s a great atmosphere and that’s going to stand us in good stead over the season.”
