Jackett says Wolves need to find balance to their play

Molineux - Wolves - Billy Wright Stand

Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Kenny Jackett hints that he has been unhappy with his side's balance of play this season.

 

Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Kenny Jackett has told the club's Youtube channel that his side need to find the right balance in their play if they are to improve their position in the Championship table.

 

Jackett began the season looking to build on last season's near miss with the playoffs, but his team have been inconsistent since August and sit in mid-table without ever looking like competing for a top-six spot but far enough away from the relegation zone to remain unconcerned about dropping down to League One.

 

Injuries have played their part in Wolves rarely coming within touching distance of the best teams in the division, but Jackett has suggested that he has been unhappy with his players being unable to deliver many complete performances.

 

The West Midlands outfit have gone six games without a win in the league, and although Jackett felt that the club were unlucky in the 1-0 defeat to Huddersfield Town, he has acknowledged that he expects more from his players.

 

The 54-year-old said: "I felt that our pressing was good on Saturday and you need to be a good passing team, but it's about finding that balance.

"There has been certain patches in games early on when we have passed the ball very well but we haven't pressed anywhere near enough to be successful in the Championship. We want both."

On Tuesday night, Wolves face Brentford at Griffin Park knowing that they require a positive result to remain ahead of the Bees in the standings.
