Striker aiming for Molineux repeat on Saturday

CAMERON Jerome wants to seize his opportunity when Norwich City host Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday (3pm).

The 30-year-old is in line for a return to the starting line up for the visit of Paul Lambert's side to Carrow Road, with fellow forward Nelson Oliveira suspended following his red card at Rotherham last weekend.

Speaking to the media at Colney Training Centre on Friday, Jerome said: "Nelson's finding himself on the sidelines this week, which is unfortunate for him.

"However, it's an opportunity for myself to come in and help the team out. Hopefully I can put in a performance which is going to merit that because it's an important game.

"We're ready for it and are looking to come away with a positive result. It's frustrating, having been in a bad spell for a while but there's 20 games to go.

"It doesn't change our goal and it's time we started to put together a sequence of results to give us momentum. This league is about consistency and we're working hard to find a solution."

Jerome boasts an impressive personal record against the West Midlands outfit, something he added to in October when he scored the opening goal in City's 2-1 triumph at Molineux.

A competitive contest that day means the striker is aware of the challenge that lies ahead for his team, particularly in the context of closing the gap to the division's top six.

"Wolves are a good side, going off playing them earlier in the season," he explained.

"They gave us a good game and I'm sure they're going to come up here fancying themselves to get a result. We're disappointed to be sat where we are, talking about having to catch teams up.

"The only thing you can do is try to turn that into a positive. It's the results which haven't been there consistently and it's costing us.

"It's now down to us to catch them. We've done it before, so we're capable of making it happen."
