Jackett says Michal Zyro made difference in Wolves win

Molineux - Wolves - Billy Wright Stand

Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Kenny Jackett says that Michal Zyro made the difference in his side's 2-1 win over Bristol City.


Wolverhampton Wanderers head coach Kenny Jackett has told the club's official Youtube channel that he has been waiting for Michal Zyro to make his return to the first-team squad.


After signing from Legia Warsaw at the start of 2016, Zyro impressed in his first three appearances for the Championship outfit, scoring twice against Fulham and once in a 3-1 defeat with Cardiff City.


However, a calf injury ruled him out for two months and the club's form suffered as a result of his absence, but in his first game since January 16, the Polish winger showed no signs of a lack of match fitness as he helped Wolves record a 2-1 win over Bristol City.


Nathan Byrne and Matt Doherty netted the goals at Molineux but Jackett has praised Zyro, and hopes that he will benefit from not being rushed back from his fitness issues.


Jackett said: "We got a good start to the second half. Zyro I felt made a difference, we have being waiting for him to come back and his little set around Doherty, which was a good run, and we managed to bundle the ball home at the far post.

"I felt that we needed to have another attacker on the pitch. He have been waiting for Zyro but we are making sure that we don't give him too much game time and that was very important."

Wolves have now won their last two home fixtures having previously registered just four wins from 16 outings in front of their own supporters.

The victories have eased the pressure on Jackett, who had previously witnessed his team go seven matches without a win in the second tier.
