To most people looking in on the Championship this season Wolverhampton Wanderers look a bang average side.
The quality of Benik Afobe has been sold and the remainder of the squad, whilst competent at Championship level, doesn’t stand out.
That is shown in the results this season, 28 games, 38 points and exactly mid table in 12th.
Wolves are now 8 points behind the play-off places and 14 points clear of relegation.
It might only be January, but the season is done. Wolves will be a Championship side next season.
But Wolves Head Coach Kenny Jackett doesn’t think that’s the case, or at least he’s not saying as such in public, he has to believe that his side still has something to play for and he believes if he could make a signing or two before the January transfer window closes the battle for the top six is still alive.
‘We need a hell of a run to get there [the play-offs], we know that, but it is still open. The top sides don’t look like dropping points at the moment, but that can change.’ Wolves Head Coach Kenny Jackett told the BBC.
He continued: ‘We don’t need much in terms of players. We don’t need to reconstruct a spirited squad. With the right additions we certainly feel we can climb the table.
‘We don’t feel we’re too far away. There is a gap, but we’re trying to close it. There are some days to go until the transfer deadline and it [signing players] is something we’d like to do.’
