WOLVES TAKE STEP IN RIGHT DI­REC­TION

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

THERE is no doubt that it will be the home side that are hap­pi­est with this point.

Yes, Kenny Jack­ett will point to his side fin­ish­ing much the stronger, cre­at­ing the lion’s share of chances and com­ing clos­est to achiev­ing vic­tory.

But it was al­ways go­ing to be about the per­for­mance for Wolves af­ter four loses in their last five and some dis­jointed ef­forts in re­cent weeks.

Mike Wil­liamson is set­tling in nicely now and im­por­tantly that is al­low­ing Danny Batth to get back to his best af­ter the loss of reg­u­lar part­ner Richard Stear­man.

Wolves kept a dan­ger­ous look­ing Clarets side quiet for long pe­ri­ods and that gives them some­thing to build on af­ter the in­ter­na­tional break which hap­pens next week.

For the vis­i­tors it was a point gained, and seven in a week, which keeps them in con­tention at the top and al­lowed boss Sean Dy­che to be philo­soph­i­cal.

He knows there is still plenty to play for.
