Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Kenny Jackett has stated that the point gained from their 0-0 draw at Stevenage was a ‘good one’.
Both sides had several chances in the midweek meeting, yet neither could turn those chances into a winning goal in the League One encounter.
The result could have implications at both ends of the table, with Wolves on the verge of promotion, whilst Stevenage are a point off safety. Both goalkeepers were tested at Broadhall Way, with Carl Ikeme and Chris Day making several important saves. The latter kept the hosts in the game, denying Leon Clarke on several occasions.
However, Wolves boss Jackett was satisfied, despite the point.
Jackett said: “I thought the first half was pretty even and in the second half we had the better of it. We had some big chances and obviously didn’t put them away but really that was all the second half lacked.”
“It’s a tough place to come with the high energy levels from Stevenage and looking at the bigger picture, I’m not disappointed with a point because in the position we’re in every point is a good one.”
“That was our game in hand on third place and that extends the gap to 11 points with six games to go so the overall position is very good.”
“In terms of our performance, we want to get our full energy and sparkle back for Saturday to do well against Peterborough. Stevenage had a very high motivation level and we just couldn’t find the goal or goals that we needed in the second half .”
Wolves are currently six points ahead of 2nd place Brentford, with six Sky Bet League One games remaining.
