Danny Batth insists Wolves have the potential to be in the promotion mix next season

Kenny Jackett's men look set to finish this season in the Championship's mid-table.

Danny Batth is confident that with the right additions in the summer, Wolverhampton Wanderers have the potential to be in the promotion mix this time next year, the Express and Star reports.

Wolves go into the final game of the season in the bottom half of the Championship, and could be in danger of finishing the campaign as low as 16th if results go against them on the final day.

Despite the disappointing end to the season - Kenny Jackett's men have won just one of their last nine games - Batth believes that with a good transfer window and with several of their key men coming back from injury, the squad have the ability to be fighting for a lot more next term.

"Hopefully with signings - and [Nouha] Dicko, Jordan [Graham] and [Michal] Zyro coming back - we can be up there and with the right mix can have a good go," he told the Express and Star.

"[The recent draws] tell us we're not far away but three points is always better than one.

"It's a big job in the summer for the powers-that-be to bring in the right players to maybe swing it from draws to wins."

Though Wolves will ultimately reflect on their season negatively, it is fair to say that they have been desperately unlucky with long-term injuries, and would be in a much stronger position if Jackett had a full squad to choose from.

The likes of Jordan Graham and Michal Zyro have spent considerable periods of time on the sidelines this term shortly after showing signs that suggested that they were the kind of players that would be able to take Wolves into the promotion picture.

And if players of that calibre are able to feature prominently next year, and Jackett is able to use the transfer market to bolster the squad further, Batth's prediction that they will be much higher up the table may well come to fruition.
