Don't Panic!

Don't Panic!

There was a certain inevitabilty to Wolves shock 3-1 defeat to Preston at the weekend.

THe loss follows a now established pattern of a long unbeaten run culminating in a loss during a game that pundits usually refer to as a banker.

Having said that, it wasn't nice starting '09 with a defeat at home.

Doubly so when it was in part inflicted by a former Wolves player who has now scored as many times this season for North End as he did in 14 months at Molineux.

What id it about former players? First Rob Edwards, and now Elliott. Neither exactly prolific, but between them they've cost Wolves 5 precious points.

Thanks guys.

Mick McCarthy has issued a Hitch Hikers Guide To The Premiership 'Don't Panic!' in a bid to appease any fans feeling decidedly squeaky over the last three results that have seen the lead at the top cut to an uncomfortable 4 points at an interesting point in the season.

Birmingham in the Cup Tuesday followed by Reading away in the league on the 27th is not a good time to be having a wobble, although a look at past form suggests McCarthy's men are easily capable of putting a bad day at the office quickly behind them.

As Mick McCarthy said after the game.

'We've lost a match but we won't panic because we are a good side.....how do we react? We'll soon find out.'

That, we certainly will
