Jackett wants Wolves to lose the naivety

Despite losing the game 2-1, giving the Trotters their first win in 11 games, Wolves dominated the game, finishing with 57% possession and 21 attempts on goal.

The result was the third defeat in four games for Wolverhampton Wanderers, and has left Jackett feeling frustrated.

Jackett said to Sky Sports: ” We will play worse than that and win games, we created a lot of chances”, he continued, “We showed some good spirit and played some good football, but we have to iron out one or two areas and lose some naivety in some situations.”

Bolton took the lead in the 17th minute through Liam Feeney who fired past on-loan Arsenal keeper, Emiliano Martinez from close range.

Bolton doubled their lead in first half stoppage time after Wellington Silva was brought down in the area, 20-year-old Zach Clough calmly stepped up and converted from 12 yards.

Wolves pulled one back in the 68th minute from the penalty spot, as the highest goal scorer in England last season, Benik Afobe, slotted the ball past Ben Amos.

Despite all their late pressure, Wolves were unable to find an equaliser, mainly down to a wonderful save from Ben Amos to deny Adam Le Fondre late on.

The defeat leaves Wolves in 16th in the Sky Bet Championship table, three points off the play-offs, as Bolton have moved up to 17th.
