Reasons to be cheerful

Wolves head off to Ashton Gate on Saturday with their destint still firmly in their own hands.

Little seperates the teams on paper, and with two games in hand on their promotion rivals, the nine point gap between them isn't quite as convincing as it seems at first glance.

With only Albion showing anything vaguely lilke promotion form, it now looks down to a chase for second and a play off win place between any one of at least seven sides with Wolves looking as good as any side in that mix.

It's been a good two weeks for a first team that hasn't kicked a ball in anger.

Rivals dropping points, Michael Kightly returning in the reserves, Kyle Bennett getting an England call-up and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake winning the March Player Of The Month Award have all helped to gloss over the uncertainty that still hangs over the future of Freddy Eastwood.

A win ahead of the sold out black country derby could see Wolves climb back up to 6th place and send them into the crunch tie with Albion confidence high and on a roll.

With the fear factor now back on their side, instead of on their back after the dramatic win at Charlton Athletic, expect anything to happen in the next 90 minutes.
