Back to basics
It may not have been pretty, but Wolves 2-1 win against Neil Warnock's Crystal Palace was as good as any this season so far, and keeps us right where we need to be, in pole position.
Winning means confidence, and confidence breeds a winning mentality, acknowledged by goalscoring Andy Keogh following his match winning performance on Tuesday.
'I just think winning gives you confidence and we just have to keep believing - there will be some slip-ups along the way but you have to realise we're good enough and we have to believe in ourselves.' eh told teh clubs official site.
In every sport winners develop a swagger that beats opponents before they get anywhere near facing up to each other.
It promotes fear. It creates doubt. The opposition starts to concentrate on how to stop, instead of how to create.
And like last night, things start to go your way as Cil knows only too well.
'(Wolves) were getting a bit anxious at 1-1 and the type of break they got for their winner is the sort of thing that happens when you're top.' Warnock said in his post match interview.
We'd all prefer the type of emphatic victories earned against Sheffield and Forest, but sometimes you just have to put your nose to the grindstone and tough it out.
Winning is a habit, and one Wolves are currently forming quite nicely.
Long may it continue.
