Strikers Can Flourish

Gaffer's confidence in front two

Kenny Jackett has backed Bjorn Sigurdarson and Joe Mason to form a good partnership for Wolves and provide a goal threat.

Mason has notched two goals in three appearances since arriving from Cardiff while Sigurdarson is yet to find the net since breaking back into the side following two loan spells elsewhere and a long term injury.

But Jackett saw signs of encouragement that the pair could operate successfully in tandem during Saturday’s game at Huddersfield

“I feel Sigurdarson has been unlucky not to score,” said the Head Coach.

“He is due a goal with his effort and workrate and the problems he is causing for defenders.

“He was unlucky with his strikes and chances not to score on Saturday.

“I do feel with the effort he is putting in and the trouble he is causing for defenders that the goals will come.

“Mason showed moments of class and promise on Saturday and all the way through the game was a goal threat.

“He was just offside for the goal that was disallowed but it was close and it was a good run in behind the defender.

“We have lost a considerable amount of goals at the club even down to recent weeks losing Henry and Edwards to injury.

“Mason has been a threat for us and is a player that can score goals.

“As a pair they are working off each other and working together and I was encouraged by what I saw on Saturday.”
