Jackett thinking big

Wolves boss Kenny Jackett has his sights set on the Premier League and claims successive promotions next season is a realistic aim.

Jackett, who replaced Dean Saunders last summer following the club's relegation from the Championship, has led Wolves back to the second tier at the first attempt in his first season in charge.

Wolves, relegated from the top flight in 2012, will set a new League One points total record of 103 if they can secure an eighth win in their last 10 matches by beating relegation-threatened Carlisle at Molineux on Saturday.

"You need to set short-term goals and this (promotion) has been the first step in our overall plan," Kenny told the club's official website.

"Our aim when we come back in the summer is to get back to the Premier League. My staff and players, we are here to get promoted next season.

"But three-quarters of the division would all think they've got a chance and we'll be one of them.

"We have to set realistic targets to try to get promoted again next year.

"We certainly won't be saying too much externally to help motivate the opposition or set us up for a big fall.

"We won't talk about how we're going to do that.

"But internally, we'll know why we're coming back and what our aim is, which is to try to get to the Premier League."
