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. The Midlands club were not expected to be one of the contenders for promotion this season after having been promoted to the second division of English football only last summer.
However, they seem to have done extremely well upon their return and are currently top of the table albeit only on goal difference. Jackett praised the run that his team has put in over the last few weeks. Wolves have taken seven points out of last possible nine. It has kept them in contention for an automatic promotion spot. Only two teams are promoted automatically to the Premier league. Returning back to the English top division is very crucial for the club, which has suffered immensely in terms of finances over the last few years. They have suffered back-to-back relegations prior to returning to the Championship.
“It was a big win. Seven points out of nine is a very good return in what is a tough division. Leeds deserved their first half lead. We weren’t penetrating and didn’t cause them enough problems and on the other hand Steve Morison had a very good first half for Leeds with the goal and a couple of other chances coming from him down the inside right channel. It caused us a lot of problems but that changed in the second half,” said Jackett.
