We will stay up says Foley

We will stay up says Foley

Wolves will finish the 2009/10 season in the Premier League according to Kevin Foley.

"Having played all the teams around us, I have 100 per cent belief we can stay up," said Foley to the Express & Star.

After 20 games of the season, Wolves are in 15th place and 1 point ahead of the bottom 3.

The bottom of the Premier League looks likely to be closely fought again this season, something that brought the surprise relegation of Newcastle last year.

This year there are probably still 9 teams involved in the relegation scrap.

Everyone from Portsmouth at the bottom of the league up to Stoke in 11th, I think are at risk this season.

Foley added: "The Premier League has been hard. Players are a lot stronger and a lot quicker, but we can be proud of the first half of the season and look forward to taking more points from the second half of the season.'

Following the defeat to Birmingham, the feeling around Wolves was low. We had failed to string any results together, we were losing against teams that we felt we should be picking up results against and it was difficult to see where we could turn it around.

But then, we picked up the 3 wins in 4, which gave us a big boost up the table.

We may have now slipped back down with expected defeats to Liverpool and Manchester City, but we are ideally placed to go into the second half of the season.

"I think 19 points has been a good achievement particularly if you look at what we`ve done after the Birmingham defeat.' Foley added.
