Kenny Jackett to stick by Wolverhampton Wanderers' players

Wolves Stadium

Wolverhampton Wanderers are set to take on Brentford on Tuesday evening.

Kenny Jackett has insisted that he will stick by his Wolverhampton Wanderers players despite a defeat against Huddersfield Town on the club’s official website.

Wolves lost 1-0 at Huddersfield at the weekend with Nahki Wells netting the winner for the Yorkshire side.

The defeat extended Wolves’ winless run to five matches, but Jackett has suggested that he will not be making wholesale changes when his side take on Brentford on Tuesday night.

“It is not nice to lose but the effort and the application from the players was good on a tough day,” Jackett said.

“They have to keep working that way and we now have another game to come on Tuesday.

“We have to work hard – it will be the same group of players – and if they show the same attitude and spirit they will be on the right lines.”

Jackett has been tinkering with his line-up throughout the campaign, but he has failed to find the winning formula at Molineux this term.

The likes of Tommy Rowe and Bjorn Sigurdarson have been handed lifelines at the Midlands club recently, but the duo’s unexpected inclusions have failed to spark Wolves into life.

As a result, the pressure is rising on Jackett - with his side performing well below expectations.

Wolves were tipped to be one of the favourites for promotion this term, but they are currently in 13th place in the Championship standings, and looked destined to finish in mid-table.
