Kenny Jackett knows that results won’t always go his team’s way, but he’s also wise enough to recognise that consistency will always breed success in this feisty, competitive division.
Despite a disappointing stalemate, Wolves remained loyal to their principles yesterday and emerged with a useful point to show for it.
No goals scored sure, but then again, no goals conceded – yet again.
That’s four cleansheets from six Championship fixtures, which is all the more remarkable when you consider the only blemishes have been a questionable penalty and a painfully unfortunate ricochet.
Such miserliness steams from organisation, but also domination of the football. 63% possession yesterday shows Wolves again had an element of control to proceedings.
Still, Blackpool were resilient and effective with their 37% share. Nile Ranger could even have won it for them, had he kept his well-worked second half effort just an inch or two lower.
The Seasiders showed spirit and in Ranger and Delfounso they have individuals that could potentially dig them out of the horrible mess they find themselves in.
Wolves own individual talent, Rajiv van La Parra, came closest to conjuring up a decisive blow for Wolves, gliding inside and seeing a shot come back off the post.
With Sako on the sidelines, Michael Jacobs was finally handed a start and the diminutive midfielder almost picked up where he left off last season with a trademark headed effort that the keeper did well to push away.
Carl Ikeme had to be alert on several occasions too, most notably tipping a goal bound header over the bar as Blackpool pushed for the win.
Undefeated Charlton await at the Valley on Tuesday, which in itself will be another formidable examination but one Wolves won’t fear.
If they remain consistent, it’s hard too see them going too far wrong.
