Bjorn Sigurdarson

Bjorn Sigurdarson admits he faces a battle to claim a starting place in the Wolverhampton Wanderers line-up.

The 21-year-old Icelandic international striker joined Wolves from Lillestrom this summer, but does not expect to be in the first team immediately.

"There's a lot of competition, so even to play a minute here this season, it's going to be some achievement," he told the club website.external-link

"It'll be the toughest challenge of my career to force my way into this team."

Sigurdarson faces competition from Kevin Doyle, Sylvan Ebanks-Blake and Steven Fletcher to get into the Wolves first team, but he says he is just concentrating on his own performances.

"All I can do is play my own game, hope everyone will be impressed and the manager will play me more," said Sigurdarson.

"I feel over the last year I've developed a lot more than in the previous year - it's been a big jump.

"I've worked really hard to get everything into the right shape; physically, mentally, right foot and left foot to make sure everything is equal."
