Next season Wolverhampton Wanderers will be pushing for promotion to the Premier League.
If we are to be successful in the Championship a key part of that could be a good start and that would be aided by a good pre-season.
Wolves pre-season began at the Clairefontaine academy in France.
A 3-2 victory followed with goals from Michael Jacobs, Benik Afobe and Bright Enobakhare.
Just two days later and Wolves were in action again against Paris FC with Donovan Wilson scoring a later winner.
During this period of pre-season you would hope to see an improvement on a game-by-game basis as fitness levels and match sharpness return following the summer break and that’s just what Wolves Head Coach Kenny Jackett believes he saw.
‘It was an improvement on Wednesday’s game, the players looked sharper and we had more cohesion, You can see quite a well-balanced group at the moment in terms of how the players are developing.’ he told the Express & Star.
He also appears to be quite excited about a new formation change which he believes could well suit his Wolves squad as they challenge for promotion from the Championship next season.
The tweak sees the introduction of a 4-3-1-2 system, which would see the likes of Jack Price better suited to their role.
He continued: ‘The competition and the creativity and the ability to play the ball and keep it and still retain two forwards was the biggest reason for it.
‘It could play to our strengths more.’
Time will tell on that one. But our end-of-season form showed that we were much better suited to two striker so we have to stick with that.
