Wolves coach impressed with 'excellent' Leeds United star Alex Mowatt

Wolves coach Kenny Jackett was impressed with Leeds United's Alex Mowatt.

Wolves boss Kenny Jackett has praised Leeds United's youngsters for the impact made in the Championship clash between the two sides.

Speaking to the Wolves official website, he also had positive comments regarding Leeds head coach Neil Redfearn.

He said: "Leeds have got some good young players – Mowatt is an excellent player who really got into the game in the second period and Taylor got a goal as well.

“If you look at the form of the two teams since the turn of the year it has been very similar and that shows what Neil Redfearn has done there.

Alex Mowatt and Charlie Taylor were both on the scoresheet as Leeds fought back from 3-1 down to draw level, only for a late goal from Dave Edwards to give Jackett's side a 4-3 victory.

Jackett's Wolves are one of the form teams in the Championship, losing just one of their last 10 games, and winning their last four in a row.

Leeds have become more inconsistent, losing their last two, and winning only four of their last 10 matches, but the emergence of their young talent has really been the positive story of their season.

Out of the play-off race, Neil Redfearn's side have kept supporters interested, largely down to the homegrown talent which has been a big part of their success.

Alex Mowatt has nine goals this season and is the club's second highest top scorer, and holding onto him is an absolute must for them heading into next season.

Leeds would do well to hope Wolves are unsuccessful in their promotion bid and Jackett does not make a play to try to lure him to the Premier League himself.
