Wolves boss says his side had the better of the match despite Boro’s ‘high energy levels’
Kenny Jackett says his Wolves side edged their match against Stevenage this evening.
The league leaders came into the match having lost just once in their last 10 games, but despite chance for both sides Wolves could not find the breakthrough and could only extend their lead at the top of the table by one point instead of three.
Afterwards, Jackett said: “The first half was pretty even, the second half we had the better of it. We had some big chances and obviously didn’t put them away. That was all the second half lacked.
“It is a hard place to come, [there were] high energy levels for Stevenage tonight.

“They did [throw bodies in the way] and they had very high motivation level today.
“We just couldn’t find that goal or goals that were needed in the second half.
“I’m pleased with a clean sheet; we worked terrifically defensively as a side and if you can’t win you [make sure] you don’t get beat.
“The only criticism is perhaps the finishing tonight; that was the difference between that and other performances.”
