Kenny Jackett praises Wolverhampton Wanderers duo Conor Coady and George Saville

Wolves Stadium

Conor Coady and George Saville both started in central midfield for Wolverhampton Wanderers against Huddersfield Town.

Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Kenny Jackett has told the club’s official website that both Conor Coady and George Saville performed well against Huddersfield Town this weekend.

Wolves were beaten 1-0 by Huddersfield on Saturday afternoon as they fell to another disappointing defeat.

Nahki Wells scored the Terriers’ winner late on, but Jackett was not too displeased with his midfield duo’s performance.

The manager felt that both Coady and Saville did their job well, even though they were unable to help their side pick up a victory.

“I felt Coady and Saville did well in midfield on and off the ball and we pressed and pressurised Huddersfield but were unable to find a goal.” Jackett said.

“Results are the big thing and the bottom line and we didn’t get one today after a tight game so we are not happy with that.”

Coady and Saville were a surprise selection in Wolves’ midfield, with Kevin McDonald continuing to play in a more defensive role.

McDonald has been a key player for Wolves in an attacking sense, but more recently he has been asked to play a more protective role in midfield as Jackett searches for the winning formula.

Wolves have performed well below expectations throughout the campaign so far and they have struggled to find any sort of consistency.

The Midlands outfit have now failed to win any of their last five matches, and the pressure is rising on Jackett to start turning things around before the end of the season.
