I like many Wolverhampton Wanderers haven’t really had enough time to get over last season yet.

A narrow shot at the Championship play-offs denied by the closest of margins on the final day of the season.

9 months of twists and turns lie ahead in 2015/16, with more agony and ecstasy spread across the 72 football league clubs than child birth (ok artistic licence but you get the point).

Amazingly it’s all come around again, on the same day as the test match with Australia began, so too did Wolves pre-season at the Clairefontaine academy in France.

A 3-2 victory with goals from Michael Jacobs, Benik Afobe and Bright Enobakhare followed.

The troublesome goalkeeper position however highlighted following Tomasz Kuszczak departure from Molineux.

Carl Ikeme has left the tour with an injured knee and Aaron McCarey is still awaiting his FA hearing for failing a drug test.

Jon Flatt took the gloves for the game.

‘He make some good saves, He’s a local lad and as it stands at the moment with Aaron McCarey awaiting his case and Carl Ikeme injured he’s in there for us and it’s very, very good experience for him to come into the first team setup and be able to play, it’s very good for the future.’ Jackett told the Express & Star.

On the tour itself he said: ‘It’s nice to play games – there’s nothing like it in terms of getting into rhythm and players being able to find their feet.

‘We had a good couple of weeks of fitness training and we just need to keep playing games now.
