Wolverhampton Wanderers went on a run of four consecutive victories that helped them dream about a place in the play-off places at the end of the campaign.
This time, however, came to an end after the 2-1 defeat against Birmingham City. This defeat could not have come at a much worse time for the club, as there are only a couple of matches left. Wolves will be aware at they cannot draw any more points in the quest for promotion. It does not get any easier for the club next week as they are up against Middlesbrough, who have been one of the best teams in the division.
Steve Clarke has admitted that Reading FC was hard done by a penalty call in the game versus Charlton Athletic played yesterday, but, he reckons that the response of the Royals’ players to that situation could have been far better.
According to Clarke, his boys seemed to throw the towel in once that penalty incident took place and that was so disappointing. They should just have told themselves that it was one of those things that did not go their way and they needed to move on from that, but, they almost took it as a knockout punch.
As a way to soften the financial consequences that clubs suffer once they are relegated from the Premier League, these clubs receive parachute payments and one of these clubs is Wolverhampton Wanderers which is currently performing in the English Championship League after having lost their spot in the Premier League back in 2012.
Bakary Sako has been a major player for Wolverhampton Wanderers this season. Despite being an attacking midfielder, he has already scored seven goals in just 23 appearances.
Wolves form may have suffered in the months of November. They are no longer top of the table, but the club still remain with the chance to finish in the Premier League at the end of the campaign. After winning three out of the last four matches, manager Kenny Jackett says that he will be disappointed with the temporary exit of Sako.Sako will be going to play in the African Cup of Nations.
The English Championship loan window closes at the end of November and Wolverhampton’s Kenny Jackett is being especially active after the club officially confirmed the signing of Danny Graham and Tomasz Kuszczak.
Tomasz Kuszczak is a 32 year old goalkeeper who used to be a player of Manchester United and has now joined Wolverhampton Wanderers on a loan deal which is going to last until January of 2015. The Polish shot-stopper is expected to be a back-up option for Carl Ikeme at the Championship League club.
Wolverhampton Wanderers managed to continue their impressive run of form in the Championship after a 2-1 win over Leeds United. While this was an extremely positive result for the club that was struggling in League One only last season, it was the final nail in the coffin for Leeds United boss Darko Milanic. He was sacked from his role after just six matches in charge, but Kenny Jackett experienced opposite emotions. The club have seen an incredible rise in the last 24 months under the management of Jackett.
Kenny Jackett of Wolverhampton Wanderers is eager on reinforcing the attacking department of his squad as the Championship League club has not had such an impressive record of goals scored compared to their previous season when they managed to score 89 goals in 46 matches during their time playing in the League One.
Wolves have admitted that they are unlikely to sign Sheffield United defender Harry Maguire, who looks set to move to much bigger clubs. The 21-year-old defender is one of the highly rated youngsters in English football right now. He came through the ranks at Sheffield United and has been linked with a move to the Premier league. After getting recently promoted back to the Championship, Wolves will straightaway be looking to challenge for a return to the Premier League. However, they may have to do so without the presence of Harry Maguire.
Kenny Jackett has completed his first summer signing as he secured the services of Tommy Rowe who was out of contract at Peterborough United which means that Wolverhampton managed to add him into the squad on a free transfer as the newly promoted Championship League club made their move faster than Leeds United and Blackburn who were some of the other clubs interested in signing the 25 years old player.
Tommy Rowe expressed his delight about being transferred to his new club Wolverhampton Wanderers as he talked during a press conference and said:
Wolves will be returning straight back to the championship after just one season in the League One after they managed to seal promotion with record points tally. The club will be finishing the season with more than 100 points on the board. After relegation last year, which was their second consecutive, the future of the club was looking in a lot of turmoil. However, manager Kenny Jackett has done a great job in getting the club back up the in first instance.
