Wolves prove pro­mo­tion point

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE - By Niall Kelly

THIS WAS said to be a test of Wolves’ pro­mo­tion cre­den­tials. If it was boss Kenny Jack­ett passed it – and Brent­ford in the League One standings – with fly­ing colours.

The vis­i­tors played out a bril­liant away per­for­mance at Grif­fin Park, with James Henry and a dou­ble from Michael Ja­cobs seal­ing the win.

The vic­tory saw Jack­ett’s side jump above the Bees and into the au­to­matic pro­mo­tion places, but the 52-year-old re­mains cau­tious.

“It was a great win, con­sid­er­ing the mo­men­tum Brent­ford had built up,” he said.

“It was well de­served. As a club we made great strides. It was a great test to see where we were against a side who have been re­ally strong in this di­vi­sion.

“But now you look at the top of ta­ble and there’s one point be­tween the top three clubs. Pre­ston won again too, so there’s some very good com­pe­ti­tion at the top of league.

“It’s a very tight at the top and we’re pleased we’re in it. It was a very pro­fes­sional job and the stat we dom­i­nated was the shots on tar­get. Par­tic­u­larly in the sec­ond half it was set up for us to get goals and we needed the sec­ond and third.

“We had other chances as well and I felt more of them came in the sec­ond half rather than the first. We made the most of our chances
