Wolves manager Paul Lambert is hopeful that Nouha Dicko can go on a good run of form after his goal on Friday night.

The 24-year-old striker scored his first senior goal of the season and made a positive impact when coming off the bench at half-time.

However, he couldn’t prevent the Midlands club slipping to a 2-1 home defeat against rivals Birmingham.

The result means that Wolves are 20th-placed in the Championship table and are only five points above the relegation places.

Lambert did draw some positive after the game and hopes Dicko can kick on now after his goal drought came to an end.

“Hopefully scoring will do Nouha the world of good,” Lambert said, as quoted by the club’s official website.

Dicko has been extremely unfortunate with injuries during his career and missed the majority of the 2015/16 campaign with a serious knee injury.

The forward has been unable to recapture his top form this term and has lacked the same clinical touch in front of goal.

He managed 15 goals for Wolves in the 2014/15 season and has proved that can be a good option to spearhead the attack.

Dicko will be delighted to be back among the goal, albeit in a fifth consecutive defeat, but could provide the goal to help Wolves stay clear of a relegation battle.
