Wolves have taken an impressive 13 points from their first five games in Sky Bet League One as they find themselves in England's third tier for the first time since 1989 following back-to-back relegations.

But Jackett, who took the reins at Molineux over the summer, knows there is a long way to go this term and wants his side to keep up the pace at the top of the table, continuing at home to Swindon this weekend.

"We must meet these standards and show the consistency, professionalism and attention to detail against what will be a very motivated division against Wolves," he told the club's official website.

"Their challenge now is to carry it on after some promise and go on and have a successful season.

"It's still very early days and while there is some promise and encouragement for the future, that's all there is at the moment.

"That's nice, and good for the players to see as a group they're capable and also very important for the supporters to have an idea five games in whether they're in for an optimistic season or a pessimistic one."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
