Jones credits Wolves form to Man Utd grounding

Wolves midfielder David Jones credits his impressive form this season to the grounding he enjoyed at Sir Alex Ferguson's Manchester United.

"Alex Ferguson told me every time I went on a pitch I had to remember I was a Manchester United player," said Jones.

"I had come through from age 10 at Manchester United and I have to remember the football values they taught me. So every time I put on another shirt - even though it's not Manchester United's - I have to keep those high standards.

"I do try. And my dad, Martin, reminds me all the time about that statement.

"I am still improving. I still don't think Wolves have seen the best of me yet . I'm gradually getting better with each game and hopefully I can show I am a top-quality player."
