Michael Jacobs on strength Wolves have that can win promotion

Wolves Stadium

The winger believes that Wolves have a key strength in the search for the Premier League.

Wolves are out of the play-off places with three games left of the regular season, but Michael Jacobs has told the official club website what strength they have to see them promoted.

The 23-year-old said: “I think we have the character, you look at the experience in there with the youthfulness now, it’s a good blend. They’re the sort of characters that you know will bounce back straight away.

“You look at the characters in there, boys that have been in promotion pushes, relegation battles; they’ve got the experience to rally everyone.”

Following back to back defeats at Birmingham and Middlesbrough, the Midlands club sit three points away from the final play-off place - occupied by Ipswich.

And it is Ipswich who head to Molineux on Saturday in a game that could move Wolves into the top six, or potentially end their chances of promotion.

The consecutive defeats have done little to ruin the sense of optimism around the club as they look to secure back-to-back promotions, and there is a real quality in Kenny Jackett’s squad. However, there is a sense that a squad not used to this situation could crumble under the pressure, and Jacobs seems to be confident that he is amongst players who will not do such a thing.

Quite the opposite in fact, as Jacobs appears to suggest that the players in the squad are suited to such a struggle, as the experience and youthfulness can combine to create a perfect rally squad ahead of the late-season run-in.

With three games left to achieve promotion, if Wolves are not in the top six by Saturday evening, it is hard to see them overcoming the points gap by the end of the campaign, and Jackett’s men may have to settle for another season in the second tier.
