One game left in the season and with knowledge that we are now again preparing for life in League 1, new permanent manager Neil Harris has called on the team to maintain the levels they have set in recent games as we look to get one over former manager Kenny Jackett and his Wolverhampton Wanderers side.

Speaking to the official site ahead of the trip to the Molineux, Harris explained.

‘Every game is a test and every day in training is a test for my players. What are they playing for, my players? They are playing for the club, they are playing for me and, most importantly, they are playing for each other. Nothing changes for us. We will be physical, we will be exciting, we will have pace in the team and we will certainly be aggressive. The winning mentality started seven weeks ago and slowly but surely it’s growing all the time. That continues on Saturday and next season it is paramount from day one. This Saturday we go to beat Wolves and we will have a strong line-up with some good young players on the pitch.’

With it being a reunion with Jackett for many, Harris now meets him in the same capacity following his appointment as permanent manager on Wednesday, and having had a great relationship during Jackett’s time in charge, he’s of course relishing the meet, although he admits it will be a bit surreal.

‘Ken is a top man and his record speaks for itself. He has done a fantastic job at Wolves and he did a fantastic job here. By his own admission it took him a while to get going here, to learn a lot about the club, style of play and things like that, but he did get it right.’

Harris goes on to say that he knows he and a number of senior players at the time learnt a ‘hell of a lot’ under Kenny and he’s grateful for that.

‘His style of coaching, his management and what he demanded from the players was top drawer. Ken is a good guy; a good football man who has given me some invaluable advice in the last eight weeks so Saturday’s game might be a little bit surreal at times for me and Dave Livermore to be standing with Ken and Joe Gallen. But it’s a great challenge for our team against theirs and a great challenge for me to go up against Ken.’
