It's Our Responsibility

Gaffer says the team must lift the fans

Kenny Jackett says the responsibility to provide the performances and results which the fans want to see lies with him and his players.

There was some criticism from the stands during Saturday’s defeat to Preston, and Wolves’ have only picked up one point from the last three games at Molineux.

In contrast the form on the road has been impressive – eight points from four games with only one goal conceded – and Wolves will be followed by another large travelling contingent at Huddersfield on Saturday (3pm).

“The responsibility goes with myself,” said the Head Coach.

“And it goes with the players.

“And if the supporters see on the pitch a good performance, a winning performance, a cohesive performance, then they’ll get behind the team.

“And when they see what they don’t like, they won’t. I accept that.

“It’s our responsibility to make sure that both performances and results pull us away from 12th and start to climb up into the upper reaches of the division.

“I understand there’s a lot of criticism around.

"Jez can speak for himself, as can Steve Morgan.

“In terms of myself, I see that there is a disenchantment. I do see the criticism.

“I can see it, I can hear it, I’m obviously very aware of it.

“The big thing to put it right is performances on the pitch.

"It always has been and always will be.

“My job is to make sure that we get results and move up the table and be competing with the top sides.

“Ultimately that’s what everybody wants.

“It will go off what they see, it’s my job to put that team together, to organise them, to coach them, to make it a cohesive and ultimately a winning performance, that’s what it’s about.

"That’s where my focus is.”

Wolves face back-to-back away games with Huddersfield tomorrow and Brentford on Tuesday (7.45pm) before welcoming Derby to Molineux for a televised fixture a week on Saturday (12.30pm).
