Jody Craddock helped Wolves kept their 13th clean sheet of the season last night at Turf Moor. It was all the more satisfying because of the nature of the encounter.
On badly rutted pitch, the football was never going to beautiful, but the defence stood firm against everything Burnley threw at them.
Speaking to Wolves World Jody said :
'It was a battle out there, very messy and certainly not a pretty game, so we were very happy to keep that clean sheet.
'They didn't have all that many shots but it was the type of game where if we'd let our guard down for a second they'd have got back in the game.”
If Wolves are to reap the benefit of the win, they now have to go on a run to try and close the gap with the top six that is now down to 7 points.
And that may mean Glenn Hoddle has to change his tactics, as more and more pitches start to cut up. Something that has not escaped the players notice, as Jody Goes on to explain.
'It was a solid performance and hopefully the start of a run, that's the way we've got to think. Pitches are changing and we might have to play a bit differently.
'We had to hit a longer ball and put them under pressure but that's what teams have been doing to us.”
Jody was a shining light in the back four last night, along with Maurice Ross, and he is hoping that he has done enough to get the nod over Gabor Gyepes for Saturday's encounter with Ipswich.
It would surelyu be rough justice if he didnt.
'On a personal note I was pleased with how I did and can't ask any more than the clean sheet. Fingers crossed I'll be in the squad again for the weekend.' He said.
No one can ask anymore of the players than to give their all, and last night they certainly did that.
More of the same at the weekend and there just might be signs of belief creeping back on the terraces.
