Kenny Jackett accepts criticism from Wolves fans

Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Kenny Jackett says that he understands the criticism aimed at his side after their recent run of form.

Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Kenny Jackett has told the club's official website that he accepts criticism of his side's recent performances in the Championship.

The West Midlands club have failed to record a league victory since January 12, with three draws and two defeats being registered during the past five weeks.

Wolves have endured an injury-hit season which started with Nouha Dicko sustaining a serious knee injury in August and a number of defenders being sidelined for significant periods before Christmas.

Since the turn of the year, winger Jordan Graham has been ruled out for a year while Mike Williamson is yet to make his debut since joining from Newcastle United in January. However Jackett has insisted that he understands the reaction of the club's supporters regarding their most recent displays and has challenged his players to take more responsibility.

The 54-year-old said: "The responsibility goes with myself, and it goes with the players. If the supporters see on the pitch a good performance, a winning performance, a cohesive performance, then they’ll get behind the team. When they see what they don’t like, they won’t. I accept that.

"It’s our responsibility to make sure that both performances and results pull us away from 12th and start to climb up into the upper reaches of the division.

“In terms of myself, I see that there is a disenchantment. I do see the criticism. I can see it, I can hear it, I’m obviously very aware of it. The big thing to put it right is performances on the pitch. It always has been and always will be."

Wolves are currently 11 points adrift of the top six in the Championship standings and travel to in-form Huddersfield Town on Saturday afternoon for their next clash.
