Enobakhare insists his head’s B-right as he eyes chance at Wolves

Bright Enobakhare insists he has the right mindset and would like to return to Wolves as he continues to catch the eye on loan at League One side Coventry.

The 21-year-old has just been named in the EFL’s team of the week after scoring a classy goal to open the floodgates in a memorable 5-4 win at Sunderland at the weekend.

The goal was his fifth in 14 games for the Sky Blues, who he joined after a frustrating spell with Kilmarnock, where he failed to score and only started twice and came off the bench on a further four occasions.

Enobakhare’s contract expires on June 30 but Wolves have a 12-month option to extend it. The Molineux academy graduate would like to force his way back into the reckoning after playing 26 games in all competitions last season as they lifted the Championship title.

There has never been any doubting the Nigerian-born player’s natural talent but rumours that Enobakhare’s focus was not always on his football surfaced last season.

But he insists he has grown up and matured and is enjoying his football.

I have learned a lot and I think my mentality is different from what it was last year,” said Enobakhare. “Hopefully when I go back I can showcase myself.

I think my mindset is different. When you first start you always think lower.

My mindset has grown so I know what I want and I know where I’m going. I just try to work hard and keep my head down.

I’m trying to do things that I was not doing before. I don’t think about what fans think, I know what I want so I just have to go for it.

I have a lot of good people around me and they’ve been very supportive.

Everything has been going well. I just want to be around the right people to be able to play good and improve my game every week. I’m having my best moment.”

Asked about his future, Enobakhare said: “I don’t know to be honest. I just want to keep my head straight and focus on my game.”

Sky Blues boss Mark Robins said recently he does not know if he would be able to re-sign Enobakhare next season.

But the forward still feels the draw of his parent club and revealed he supports Wolves when he can.

I go to some of the games. Even when we played against Peterborough, after the match I rushed home to get changed to go to the Man United game,” he said. “I was there in the stadium. After our games, if I have the time, I love to go.”

Enobakhare has helped Coventry to the fringes of the play-off race. Mark Robin’s side are currently eighth in the table and four points off the top six with four games left.

The club still don’t know where they will be playing next season as their legal wrangle between their owners and Ricoh Arena owners Wasps drags on.

But Enobakhare says the players are focused on football. He added: “We have just had to keep our heads up to be honest. We don’t have to think about it, we only have to focus on where we’re going. We want to try to get to the play-offs and that’s our aim.”
