Kenny Jackett was not reading too much into other results last night, instead continuing to focus all his attentions on Wolves and another tough awayday at Bradford on Saturday.
With Leyton Orient losing at Coventry and Peterborough drawing against Sheffield United, Wolves’ 2-0 victory against Oldham closed the gap at the top to three points with the Molineux Men having a game in hand.
But just as he had done before the game, Jackett is not focusing too closely on the early Sky Bet League One table, instead citing Coventry’s result as evidence that Wolves took a good point from the Sky Blues at the weekend.
“Everybody looks at the results and the other results last night,” said the Head Coach.
“I think it shows that it was a good performance on Saturday when we might have just edged it between two good teams.
“Results elsewhere when you see Coventry beat Leyton Orient 3-1 does put Saturday into perspective.
“We have lost one game in 12 now and have had a good, solid start to the season.
“That is keeping us in touch with the pace at the top of the table.
“When you look at the top two they have had such a fantastic run but in the end you do have to concentrate on your own team and your own result.
“We’ve just got to look forward to a very big game at Bradford on Saturday.
“The games do come thick and fast and our concentration after a good win tonight has to turn quickly to Saturday.”
Bakary Sako was again Wolves’ creator-in-chief at Molineux last night, setting up both goals in a hard-earned victory.
“He (Sako) has contributed well to the season so far and again some telling assists for us which have helped us take the points,” added Jackett.
“I don’t think anyone can question his commitment when he has worn the Wolves shirt and he has been excellent.
“He also had a good season last year in an ultimately disappointing season for the club.
“Since I have been here he has contributed very well and has been committed.”
