Kenny Jackett worried by Wolverhampton Wanderers' lack of defensive options

Wolverhampton Wanderers have kept three clean sheets in their last three matches.

Kenny Jackett has admitted to Wolverhampton Wanderers’ official site that he is worried about the defensive options at Molineux currently.

Wolves only have five senior defenders at the club, leaving their options at the back looking very short.

If injuries are to strike, Wolves could be forced to name a makeshift defence, and Jackett wants to address the potential problem by making additions in January.

“We have five senior defenders at the moment,” Jackett said.

“That is quite worrying and not too many of our midfield players or wingers have got experience of the back four, so its something we’re looking to address.

“They’re doing well, we have an experienced player on our bench but after that we are short of defenders, we recognise that.”

Wolves have linked with the likes of Bolton Wanderers Dorian Dervite and Dean Moxey in the Express and Star, as Jackett searches the market for potential recruits.

Wolves struggled to keep goals out over the early part of the campaign, but they have started to tighten up at the back more recently.

Wolves have kept a clean sheet in their last three matches, all of which have ended up as victories.

Jackett’s side have started to move up the Championship table, as a result of their recent improvements, and they are now just seven points away from the play off places.
