Ian Holloway raves about brilliant Kenny Jackett, criticises Wolves fans?

Wolves Stadium

The pundit has been previewing Wolves' Championship clash with Birmingham.

Ian Holloway has backed a 2-2 draw when Wolverhampton Wanderers host Birmingham City this Sunday - and also heaped praise on Wolves boss Kenny Jackett, according to his regular predictions column for Sky Sports.

Indeed, the pundit feels Jackett is doing a 'great' and 'brilliant' job despite Wolves' owner wanting to sell the club.

Holloway told Sky: "I can't wait for it. These two can beat anybody on their day. I think Kenny Jackett is doing a great job at Wolves as the owner has put him under pressure by wanting to sell.

"He's done a brilliant job with Wolves full-back Matt Doherty, who is developing into a fine player.

"When a club wants a new owner it starts to cut its cloth and there's no positive driving force at the top. Although, I don't blame the owner for wanting to sell. He's spent a fortune, transformed the club but still gets moaned at after the team draws a game."

Holloway seems to have a thing for taking digs at fans - if we are to perceive his last line about the owner getting 'moaned at' as a slight at the Wolves faithful.

He often says the same about Middlesbrough and the reality of football is that home fans will get frustrated when progress isn't made.

It's been a similar scenario at Queens Park Rangers all season, for instance. Supporters have quite literally been banging walls in frustration but are happier now that Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is making some sort of headway.

For Wolves, a level of consistency is seriously needed, as hard as their ownership status may make it.
