Matt Jarvis is happy to be recapturing the sort of form that earned him an England cap for Wolves.

The winger has gone back to the basics of getting chalk on his boots and crossing from the byline, and it seems to be producing the goods.

“I’m enjoying getting back to what I do best,” Jarvis explained.

“The way we have played in the last few weeks has helped me get back to what I do and I’m certainly enjoying it.

“The gaffer was saying it was about getting back to what I was going when I got called up for the England team so that’s what I’ve been trying to do.”

Although Wolves were beaten 4-1 at Old Trafford at the weekend, Jarvis managed to set up a goal for Steven Fletcher and that relationship has proved very effective in the past 18 months.

“It seems to be going well and is proving a good combination between us,” Jarvis added.

“It was nice to get another assist and for Fletch to get another goal. Hopefully that is something we can keep going.

“When you are a winger, a lot of the time it’s instinct in terms of the strikers and you just know where they are going to be on the pitch.”

Fletcher joined Wolves in June 2010, and nobody has scored more Premier League headers than him - Jarvis thinks his teammate is at the top of his game.

“At the moment he’s getting into some great positions and getting on the end of crosses which is very handy," he concluded.

“He is in fantastic form.”
