Kenny Jackett explains how he felt walking past Wolves fans after defeat

Wolves Billy Wright Stand

Kenny Jackett said he understands why Wolverhampton Wanderers fans are critical of him.

Wolves slipped to another defeat last night, soundly beaten by Brentford at Griffin Park.

The west London side won 3-0, and Wolves are seven games without a victory and look well out of the play-off picture.

After the final whistle manager Kenny Jackett had a long walk to the tunnel past away fans, and said he was well aware of the criticism of his side.

Speaking to Wolves' official website, Jackett said he understands the anger, and says he is working hard to try and put it right. 

He said: "It was a frustrating night for me, the players, and, most importantly, the supporters.

"Walking past I wanted to give them some recognition and some thanks for supporting us tonight.

“I understand there is criticism and there is criticism of myself and that goes with the territory.

“I still wanted to thank them and say that, disappointing result or not, I wanted to show that I appreciated their support."

The problem Jackett faces is that Wolves appear to have a weaker squad than last year, and are not moving in the right direction.

Key players like Bakary Sako and Benik Afobe have departed, while Nouha Dicko and Jordan Graham have picked up long term injuries.

Wolves are now in 15th position, 14 points back from the play-off spots, and have not won a game since early January. With their next two games against promotion chasing Derby County and Middlesbrough, there is no light on the horizon just yet.
