Kenny Jackett praises Wolverhampton Wanderers supporters

Wolves Stadium

Wolverhampton Wanderers are currently in 12th place in the Championship table.

Kenny Jackett has told the Express and Star that he is looking to bring the Wolverhampton Wanderers fans back on side before the end of the season.

There has been a great amount of frustration around Molineux this season, as the team have performed below expectations.

Jackett is now looking to lift some of the gloom surrounding his side, by helping them put together a strong end to the campaign.

“The fans here can really lift the team. But the crowd, quite rightly, react to what they see on the pitch,” Jackett said. “That is right, that is the right way round.

“It is our responsibility, it is my responsibility to put the performances on. And if we do we know that the crowd will follow – it’s not the other way around.

“What I would say about our fans is that when they do see a positive performance, positive results, quality play, passion and commitment then they latch on to those qualities very quickly.

"They can be a massive plus in terms of us driving forward, improving as a team and getting a winning run going.”

Jackett, himself, has had to bear the brunt of fan criticism on a number of occasions this season.

The former Millwall boss has had to deal with sections of supporters calling him to be sacked.

Wolves were tipped to be one of the leading contenders for promotion this term, but they have never truly threatened to break into the play offs.

As things stand, Wolves are in 12th place in the Championship table - 14 points back from the top six.

Wolves' next match comes against Ipswich Town on Saturday.
