Half and half
Wolves entertain Charlton at the weekend, hoping for a re run of the 2-0 victory at Molineux last year to re-establish their promotion credentials.
With seven games to go, every point is as precious as platinum, and doubly so when the upcoming fixtures are scanned.
All bar one of the remaining games are against rivals bidding for the same promotion places.
Whether this is a good thing depends on your point of view, and more importantly, your demeanour.
If your glass is half full, it's a great situation to be in, having the ability to take poinst of the closest of rivals at this crucial stage in the season.
If it's half empty, the prospect of facing teams still chasing the same dream is sure to fill you with forboding and gloom.
Perhaps it also depends on where you sit.
However the last few games pan out though, the season should not be hingeing on on the last seven results.
Mick McCarthy knows it, Steve Morgan knows it, and most importantly, the fans know it.
That's not to say this season has been a disaster of Leningrad proportions, it hasn't, no matter how much some would have you believe it has.
But neither has it been satisfactory by anyones standards or scales.
