Jackett wants a ruthless Wolves

Kenny Jackett bemoaned the lack of a killer instinct after Wolves were held to a 1-1 draw by relegation-threatened Tranmere.

A David Edwards volley early in the second half cancelled out Ryan Lowe's 34th-minute opener for Rovers to earn Wanderers a share of the points at Prenton Park and stretch their unbeaten run to four league games.

Both sides also finished the game with 10 men as Richard Stearman saw red for pulling Lowe down just outside the area while Tranmere skipper James Wallace was sent off after fouling Ethan Ebanks-Landell a minute before half-time.

Despite extending their unbeaten run promotion-chasing Wolves have won just one of their last six games and boss Jackett wants his players to be more ruthless.

"We had more than enough of the ball to win the game," he said.

"Even when we were a man down I was confident we could go on and win because we were still getting lots of possession.

"We dominated and some of our football was as good as we have played this season.

"I am frustrated we weren't able to kill Tranmere off but we couldn't break them down enough to make that difference.

"At no stage did I ever feel Tranmere were getting on top of us and we put in a winnable performance.

"The players showed terrific spirit and it shouldn't be underestimated.

"I am pleased with the football we are playing and our spirit but perhaps we need to be a bit more ruthless in front of goal and find the right equation going forward to make sure we capitalise on our efforts."
