Wolverhampton Wanderers have a tough task ahead of them this season in order to get out of the League One. Manager Kenny Jackett has said that people only need to look at the troubles faced by Sheffield United in their hopes of getting promotion to the Championship.
This will clearly explain the tough nature of this division despite what many think. Many assumed that it would be easy to get out of this division just because of the parachute payments that enrich clubs like Wolverhampton Wanderers and Sheffield United, who were relegated only recently.
Wolves have made a strong start to the campaign and are currently third in the league table. However, they were expected to totally dominate the division, but it has not happened. Leyton Orient have been the surprise package of the season so far and they are leading the table by a massive five points already. Sheffield United have been trying to get out of this division since 2011, but they have been unable to do so. Wolves were relegated only last season, but it was the second consecutive relegation for the club.
Jackett has praised Sheffield United by saying that they may be in the third division of English football, but they are one of the big clubs in England.
“It’s very early days and they’ve got some good players. The one thing you will see on Saturday is the support they generate and the size of their club because they’re a very big club, and that won’t cease. I’m sure they’ll be disappointed with their start but there are more than 100 points to compete for, so anything is still possible. It’s early in the season. They are a genuinely big club and their expectation level is big," said Jackett ahead of the meeting with Sheffield United during the weekend.
