Ian Holloway predicts Wolves v Derby County, explains huge worry for Jackett

Ian Holloway Vs Chelsea

The former manager has been previewing Wolves' Championship clash with Derby.

Ian Holloway is backing Derby County to beat Wolverhampton Wanderers this weekend, according to his regular predictions column for Sky Sports.

And he feels the fact Wolves fans have started 'moaning' is a huge worry for boss Kenny Jackett. As such, despite not being convinced by the Rams, he is backing a Derby win.

Holloway told Sky: "Wolves are going through a tough patch - everything isn't very rosy in the Molineux garden. The fans have started moaning, which is a huge worry, especially in such an atmospheric stadium.

"It's such a hard place to play when the fans are groaning at you. It's terrifying when a crowd does that. I know the fans don't mean to feel like it but I worry for them, especially with such a young team. I hope Kenny Jackett gets the support he needs."

It's interesting to see whether Jackett's time at Millwall is at all comparable to his current struggles at Wolves.

In south London, Jackett was popular and took the club forward.

However, fans started to criticise him and he quickly fell out of love with the club once he took them as far as he could. Wolverhampton Wanderers have sometimes looked like promotion contenders under Jackett yet sometimes gone on runs even a relegated side would want to avoid.

As for Derby, meanwhile, automatic promotion is still a possibility - and a win at Wolves would certainly boost their hopes of going up.
