Table-topping Wolverhampton Wanderers

Table-topping Wolverhampton Wanderers

For hopefully the foreseeable future, we will be referring to Wolverhampton Wanderers as table-topping Wolves.

The victory over Notts County over the weekend lifted Kenny Jackett's Wolves to the top of League One, leapfrogging Leyton Orient, who lost for the first time at home this season.

It may well be only November, with 16 games gone and 30 to go, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't enjoy it!

So table-topping Wolves were apparently the second best side once again against Notts County. We've already raised the concerns with this and it's fair to say that for about an hour we really weren't at our best.

But they always say that winning when not at your best is a sign of a good team and we've been making a habit of it this season so we must be pretty good!

The match statistics showed that Notts County piled on the pressure with more corners and shots on target than Wolves, but the statistics also showed that they only managed one shot on target all afternoon.

Wolves however took the majority of possession and had seven shots on target. Of course there's a separate argument there that we've failed to take our chances.

So what did the boss think of Wolves hitting the summit of League One whilst still not performing brightly?

"This was a great win for us and a hard fought win, I don`t really feel it was an ugly win - our performance grew as the game went on and we created enough clear cut chances in the second half to have put the game away against a very resilient side.' Jackett told Wolves Official Website.

He continued: "The top of the league has set off at a fantastic pace and we have got some very big games coming up after the loan window has shut which will be a very big test for us.

"But there is a good spirit amongst the players and these are games we are looking forward to.

"That spirit is always a good sign and we have put ourselves in a good position - that`s all we have done.

Vital Wolves Comment: We're in contention, top of the league and still not playing well.

You have to wonder just what results this side can achieve once we do 'click' and start performing at our very best.
