Kenny Jackett praises impact Wolverhampton Wanderers summer signing Conor Coady has already made

Conor Coady has made nine appearances for Wolverhampton Wanderers so far this season.

Coady signed for Wolves from Huddersfield Town in the summer transfer window, and he was immediately given a role in the first-team. 

The combative midfielder impressed during his initial displays, but his progress has been curtailed by a red card which he picked up against Brighton & Hove Albion.

Coady has played in just one game since that dismissal, which came midway through September, but Jackett has still praised the impact that the 22-year-old has made at Molineux. 

“He [Coady] has been a good player in his short spell at Wolves and he’ll get back," he said. 

"It’s good to have him around, his physical presence and tackling came into it late at Derby.

"We’ll see [if Coady starts], the Price and McDonald partnership is a good partnership and has generally been one, but when they’re right so is Coady and McDonald as well."

Coady's place in the team has been taken by Kevin McDonald, who has started to find form over recent weeks for Wolves.

McDonald struggled over the initial part of the campaign but, after sorting out his future and penning a new deal, he has returned to his best.

Wolves did lose their latest match against Derby County at the weekend though, and that could provide Coady which a chance to come back into the starting line-up against Brentford later this evening.
