Any hopes of promotion came to an abrupt end for Wolverhampton Wanderers

Any hopes of promotion came to an abrupt end for Wolverhampton Wanderers after the 2-1 defeat against Preston North End, but manager Kenny Jackett continued to stay the defiant against all the odds.

After going on a run of four consecutive victories towards the start of 2016, the club has now failed to win in the last five games. This run is threatening to not just ended their promotion ambitions but also may put them in a spot of bother towards the end of the campaign with the threat of relegation. The club recently achieved the 40 point figure, which is a psychological barrier for safety.

Even then, they are just nine points above Bristol City who are just floating above the relegation zone.Jackett has been in charge of Wolves for a considerable amount of time. He knows that the club has been through such patches of poor form and this appears to be one of the reason behind the statements. The one consolation for the club might be the next game against Huddersfield Town. The club are away from home for this game. After three consecutive bad results at home, not playing at the Molineux stadium will be seen as an advantage.

If Wolves do not get a positive result against Huddersfield, there is a danger of being overtaken by the likes of Brentford and QPR.“Last season we finished seventh and we’re 12th in the league now.When you see a deceleration like that - I understand people want to see progress and clubs and sides going forward.It doesn’t always work that way, though. It isn’t always a continuous line upwards, it does tend to go and can come again.But in my opinion Wolves are capable of progressing, of continuing to develop and go forward,” said the manager.
