Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson hopes Wayne Rooney’s two goals against Wolverhampton Wanderers on Saturday can help spark a run of goals from the England striker.

Rooney’s double against Wolves were his first in eight league games for United, since netting against Chelsea in September.

The 26-year-old’s first of the season against West Bromwich Albion sparked a run of 11 goals in eight games for club and country, a run Ferguson hopes Rooney can repeat now he’s back to scoring ways.

"We hope he goes on a spurt now," Ferguson said.

"With Wayne in particular, he tends to score in spurts – for instance, early this season he scored 11 in the early part of the campaign.

“Now we’re heading towards an important part of the season and if we get that sort of goal ratio from Wayne again that will put us in good fettle."
