WOLVES FACE PORT VALE
Wolverhampton Wanderers will be hosting a tough match against Port Vale during the weekend and it also promises to start a hectic period of matches between now and the start of April.
Wolves, though, come into the fixture on the back of a good run of form, which has seen them in the last six matches without exception. There are also dreaming of a top position by the end of the weekend. Leyton Orient could possibly stay in touch with them with a win in their match, but Wolves already have two matches in hand over the second-placed team. This could potentially give them a six-point advantage should they win both matches.
However, the result danger of Wolves getting caught in the midst of chasing several records. The club is extremely close to beating its previous record of eight consecutive victories. They have already kept three clean sheets in a row.
Four clean sheets in a row will be enough to equal the previous record. Manager Kenny Jackett, though, has stated that it is about time that the club stopped worrying about the records and instead focused only on getting the results. He knows that the club has gone through a lot of difficult periods in the last few years. Now, however, they have a great opportunity to celebrate the title if they maintain focus.
“We’ve done OK so far, and it’s nice to chase records and get pats on the back, but for us, our whole season is ahead of us and that’s exciting. It’s exciting to be in a promotion race – it’s something we should enjoy. Monday morning we started preparing for Port Vale and football is very much like that, because if you do dwell on anything for too long, you end up on your backside,” said Jackett.
