Wolves have won the last seven matches without exception and it has seen them go top of League One with only a few matches remaining in the season. They are now odds-on favourite to get promoted into the Championship once again.
Their current record of the most consecutive victories stands at eight, but manager Kenny Jackett believes that this current team can match the achievements of its predecessors. The club have been quite impressive in recent weeks, as they have not conceded a single goal in the last few weeks. Jackett reckons that they can keep up this form and break the record.
Jackett has also said that the supporters will have a crucial role to play if Wolves are to maintain this run and get promoted into the Championship. He says that they have been extremely patient during the troubled times and they need to show their support over the next few weeks. May 3 will mark the last of the League One fixtures for this season and Jackett says that it is essential that a club like Wolves get themselves into the second division as soon as possible. The club have a difficult away trip to Walsall in the next match.
Jackett is already targeting three points from this fixture to extending the lead at the top of the table.
“The supporters are going to be the key now and we’ll need them. The link between the players and supporters is very good and we’ll need that link and drive to make sure we get over the line. They encouraged us all the way (on Saturday) and I’m thankful for that and want it to continue. The supporters are right with us at the moment and people are seeing the football we’re playing,” said the manager after the win over Port Vale.
