Couldn't see the wood for the Forest
THey might not be pretty at the moment, but a win gained anyhow when your nearest rivals are dropping points is a godsend.
Six games to go, five points clear is a damn sight better than many would have given you last August, never mind how good it could have been without the New Year stutter.
'It wasn't a great game and neither keeper was stopping shots. But it's a matter of getting the win at the moment - it's all about points rather than performance.'
Mick McCarthy said after the match, and few would argue at this stage of the season.
But though the official line from the club is it's one game at a time, Steve Morgan must surely be drawing up next years budget after Wolves struggled to find away through a dogged Forest side now staring down the barrel of a relegation shotgun.
