Danny Batth: Kenny Jackett is backing defender to perform this season

The 22-year-old academy product won promotion from League One with Sheffield Wednesday two seasons ago but has found first-team opportunities hard to come by following his return to Molineux.

Batth has caught Jackett's eye during pre-season and the Wolves boss thinks he has what it takes to be a regular.

He told the club's official website: "Danny has had a good pre-season.

"He's a good professional who does things right. I would estimate he has the ability to go on and be a leader in time.

"He didn't get as many starts last season as he would have liked but he wants to play for Wolves and wants to put that right now this season.

"Is he ready to be a regular? I think he is, yes, from what I've seen in pre-season.

"That will earn him a place and we'll see now whether he can keep that place, like all of the players.

"He's had an impressive pre-season and now I'm looking for him to handle League One strikers. That's his challenge now coming up."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
