George Saville confident Wolves have potential to make promotion charge next season

Kenny Jackett's men finished the season in the bottom half of the Championship.

George Saville has told the Express and Star that he believes that Wolverhampton Wanderers have enough potential in their squad to compete for promotion in the near future.

Wolves beat sixth-place Sheffield Wednesday on the final day of the season - with Saville scoring the goal that would turn out to be the winner - but still finished the campaign 14th in the table, 16 points adrift of the Owls. 

But rather than be disappointed about how the season has gone, Saville has insisted that there are plenty of reasons to be optimistic about what the current side can achieve.

"We stuck on in there and there are positives to take into the summer, a few alterations and who knows where that can take us," he told the Express and Star.

"We've got a lot of potential, there are loads of us that are 23 or below – hopefully we can push on next season.

"I'm optimistic, why not. We've got a few good players here and a lot of potential. With one or two additions I think we could have a good season."

With just six wins since the turn of the year, it appears that the list of long-term injuries that they have suffered this term has led to them running out of steam as the campaign has gone on. 

Having not scored in seven of those league games since January, it appears that a lack of creativity - which, with the likes of Nouha Dicko and Jordan Graham being on the sidelines, appears to be more down to injuries rather than it not being present in the squad at all - has prevented them being able to emerge from the mid-table pack and put pressure on the sides chasing promotion. 

But with several of their squad showing glimpses of tremendous quality at various points throughout the season, it is clear that if they can get slightly luckier with injuries, Kenny Jackett's men can make that leap up the table next season.
