Kettering Town Twitter account hails Wolves goalkeeper Jackson Smith after latest loan display

Kettering Town’s official Twitter account couldn’t help but laud goalkeeper Jackson Smith, with the young Wolves star putting in another fine display for them on loan.

It is all doom and gloom this morning for many Wolves supporters, after the first-team’s absolutely awful defeat to Brighton yesterday.

Wanderers have effectively now thrown away their chance of securing European football for next season.

Bruno Lage’s side were second-best all over the park at Molineux.

It was simply a horrible display, and Bruno Lage has much to ponder in these final few weeks of the season.

But there was one positive Wolves-related story yesterday, with Smith putting in a brilliant performance for Kettering against AFC Fylde.

The youngster was making his 29th appearance of the season in the National League North.

And the 20-year-old put in a stellar display between the sticks, at one point making a brilliant double save in the first-half.

He had initially spilled a shot, but recovered to make two more instinctive and immediate saves from the loose ball.

The game finished 0-0, with Kettering’s match report also commenting on the impact of Smith. They described him as putting in ‘another competent display’.

After the game, Kettering’s official Twitter account said: “We’ve said it once if we haven’t said it a million times! How good is this kid gonna be? The double save against @AFCFylde in the first half was world class! @Wolves you’ve got a real gem in @jackson141001 on your hands. Can we have him for a bit longer?.”

The result leaves Kettering in ninth place in the league table.

They are two points off the play-off places, with two games left to play.

Jackson Smith a name to remember as Wolves youngster shines again for Kettering

After the awful performance and result for the first-team yesterday, it is nice to hear about a good display from a promising Molineux youngster.

Smith now has 11 clean sheets to his name this term.

It remains to be seen if Kettering will get their wish to keep Jackson for a bit longer.

But given the productive season he’s had, it could well be that Wolves look to send Smith out on loan to a club that is much higher up the Football League next term.
