'Mistakes – I've made a few,' admits Kenny Jackett

Kenny Jackett admits there are things he could have done better this season.

A campaign that began with plenty of promise, following a stunning end to last season, has quickly petered out into mid-table mediocrity.

Ahead of this weekend's Championship fixtures, Wolves are 12th in the table, 10 points shy of the top six and 11 clear of the bottom three – and Jackett admits it's been tough.

"It has been a frustrating season, yes," he said. "Some of the situations you couldn't envisage, and some of them I could have read better."

When asked if he has made mistakes himself, the former Millwall boss added: "I'm honest with myself in terms of decisions, team selection and substitutions.

"And where they overlap with reactions to losing players, that's a big one."

So could he have done better replacing the injured Nouha Dicko and getting in a replacement for January departure Benik Afobe?

"They're certainly talking points for me, definitely, in terms of doing things better," said Jackett. "But also it was very difficult for us to sign players before we sold Benik Afobe.

"Bournemouth did come out of the blue. It wasn't necessarily a surprise the Premier League came in for him, but it wasn't possible for us to do business with a forward before that; the club's up for sale."
