Kenny Jackett wants title to repay Wolves support for MK Dons trip

Sport | Published:

Kenny Jackett today admitted Wolves must reward their fans after the huge response for tickets to the Milton Keynes Dons game.

The club has sold all 8,800 seats for the fixture on March 29 after the final batch of around 1,200 went in an hour when they were placed on general sale yesterday morning.

It guarantees Wolves' biggest league away following for over 23 years, since they took around 12,000 to Albion on December 29, 1990.

The visitors' allocation will also be a ground record at the 32,000-capacity stadium:mk, eclipsing the 7,000 Coventry took in November.

"That type of response to MK is something I haven't seen before," said the head coach, whose wise will be cheered on by another sell-out allocation of over 2,000 at Crawley tonight.

"We're really appreciative and it's really up to us now to keep our foot on the accelerator and make sure we don't leave anything out there in terms of our effort and application.

"The support we've had has been fantastic and it will be the same this week with Crawley and Sheffield United – we'll get good support and we've got to make sure we keep rewarding the people following us and backing us."

Jackett believes the size of the crowds show how big Wolves could be if they continue to be successful.

"It shows the tremendous potential of the club to attract that amount of interest - for a club in League One is fantastic," he said.

"Big clubs such as Leeds and Nottingham Forest have been well supported at this level but it's a tremendous response and myself, the staff and the players have been very appreciative of the support we've had.

"That's another fantastic example of the backing we've had."
