Wolves prove promotion point
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
