Darren Anderton may not be used to the rigours of a tough physical promotion campaign.
But it did't show on Saturday. Playing a more defensive role than the one he is better known for, Anderton held the line superbly, and put in one of his best performances of the season.
Now he is keen to help Wolves push on and make it nine points out of nine against Hull City on Saturday afternoon.
He's also looking forward to a re-unuion with fellow Spurs old-boy Nicky Barmby, and Hull boss Peter Taylor.
Talking to Wolves World, Darren said :
'We have had two really good results in a week, which both finished 1-0 and so we've kept two clean sheets,
'We're all delighted and hope it sees us edging nearer to the play-off positions.
'All we can do is keep on getting the results we need, like we have done over the past week and hope other teams slip up.'
Just over a week ago, Wolves stuttered to a 1-1 home draw with Crewe that many thought could effectively end their promotion campaign.
The sense of anxiety was so great most fans could virtually taste it.
So the gritty, hard fought back-to-back wins were all the more satisfying for the players, as Darren went on to explain :
'It was a disappointing result at Molineux against Crewe just over a week ago but we have bounced back with two good wins, and that is pleasing for everyone.'
As has happened more than once this season, at least one Wolves player will come face to face with old friends when they meet Hull next Saturday afternoon, and this time, its the turn of Darren.
An association from his days as an International and as a Spurs player await him when he travels to The KC Stadium.
'I know Peter Taylor through the England set up and he is a good footballing man and so I am sure he'll get his team play good football,' adds Darren.
'There's also Nicky Barmby there as well, who I used to play with, and so it is nice to see them doing well but we'll be looking to get that elusive third win on the bounce when we go there on Saturday.'
Wolves haven't won 3 in a row all season, and now would be the ideal moment in put that right.
Three more points next Saturday afternoon will also ramp up the pressure on those sitting just above them in The Coca-Cola Championship, and as Wolves fans know only too well, when the pressure starts to build, anything can happen.
