WOLVES HUNT­ING DOWN PLAY-OFFS

The Football League Paper - - TFLP - By Jamie Holt

KENNY Jack­ett ad­mits his Wolves side will be re­ly­ing on a dash to the line if they are to force them­selves into play-off con­tention dur­ing the fi­nal weeks of the sea­son.

Yes­ter­day’s 5-0 thrash­ing of Rother­ham gave Wolves re­newed heart, but they still lie eighth, a hand­ful of points off the play-off spots.

Jack­ett in­sists only ti­tlewin­ning form will do and has set his side a tar­get of two points a game from here on in.

Tar­get

“Wher­ever you are and what­ever you do, if you’ve got a sprint fin­ish you’ve got a chance,” he said. “We need a sprint fin­ish now.

“Luck­ily we are in po­si­tion. We’re within touch­ing dis­tance of the pro­mo­tion places and there is still a third of the sea­son to go.

“So a good points to­tal from now on will put us in a po­si­tion to attack the top, and hope­fully mo­men­tum can build up.

“But it’s okay say­ing that, we need to put up the per­for­mances that war­rant that and can earn them, be­cause the sides at the top of the di­vi­sion look very good and quite in­ci­sive in terms of goal-scor­ing.

“We’re look­ing to go through the gears a lit­tle bit as the games go on and step our game up a lit­tle bit.”

There was fur­ther good news for the Mid­lands club this week­end as Do­minic Iorfa was named the Foot­ball League’s Young Player of the Month.

The 19-year-old has made him­self a vi­tal part of the de­fence in re­cent weeks.

Jack­ett added: “Do­minic has done re­ally well and taken his op­por­tu­nity since com­ing into the first team. He has shown good con­sis­tency, abil­ity on the ball and a turn of pace.”
